Shinsuke Nakamura Appears at Japan House Show But Doesn't Wrestle

-- Promoted as one of the stars of the ongoing WWE tour in Japan, Shinsuke Nakamura made an appearance at the house show but was unable to wrestle due to being bitten in the leg by a dog this past Monday.

-- Sporting crutches, Nakamura addressed the audience but was interrupted by Samoa Joe, who wanted to take his place in the WWE title match against AJ Styles. The segment proceeded to the point where Joe attempted to choke out Nakamura, prompting AJ Styles to run out for the save. This ultimately led to Styles vs. Joe for the title, with Styles retaining.

-- WWE is holding another show tomorrow at the venue with the billed main event being Styles vs. Nakamura vs. Joe vs. Daniel Bryan. Bryan was set to face Big Cass at the first show but after Cass' release, he ended up wrestling The Miz instead.
