WWE Backlash 2017 Predictions

7 of 9


Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler

Smackdown Live seemingly hit the jackpot the week after WrestleMania when they added The King of Strong Style, Shinsuke Nakamura to their roster. Nakamura who was one of the biggest stars in New Japan Pro Wrestling came to WWE last year joining NXT.

Nakamura was able to win the NXT Championship on two occasions, before coming up to the main roster. With The King of Strong Style finally on the main roster he is now looking to become a top star on Smackdown Live.

Despite his past accomplishments and accolades Dolph Ziggler doesn’t seemed too impressed with Nakamura. Ziggler believes he is one of the best talents in WWE and that Nakamura is nowhere close to being on his level.

In what will be his first match on the main roster, Nakmaura wants to prove that he was not just a one hit wonder down in NXT and that he is truly legit. To do so, he is going to have to beat a man who has done almost everything in WWE.

Ziggler who has not been able to pick up a major win in many months will look to right his ship and spoil Nakamura’s debut this Sunday in Chicago. Despite him being a veteran and ready to battle with anyone he sees I cant see Shinsuke Nakamura losing in his first match at Backlash.

The King of Strong Style will begin his WWE career on a high note and possibly prepare for a feud with the potentially the man who leaves Chicago with the United States Championship.

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
