Everyone was expecting a few NXT call ups to take place on Raw and SmackDown Live this week, and WWE did not let the fans down. Monday night one of NXT’s top tag teams got called up when The Revival debuted, and Tuesday night Tye Dillinger finally arrived on the main roster.
However, Tye Dillinger wasn’t the only NXT star who debuted on Tuesday night. Former two time NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura also made his debut when he came out to confront The Miz. As Shinsuke entered the ring, The Miz quickly retreated, and Nakamura stayed silent as the crowd went wild.
After 205 Live went off the air, Shinsuke Nakamura made his way back down to the ring for a match with Dolph Ziggler. Shinsuke was able to put Ziggler away with the Kinshasa to send the crowd home happy. You can check out some photos and video below.

Fans have been waiting a long time for Shinsuke Nakamura to make his debut on the main roster, and SmackDown Live certainly seems like the right place for him. However, with the Superstar Shake-up coming next week, there’s always a chance he could end up on Raw. We’ll just have to wait and see.
But for now SmackDown Live is his home, and he seems happy to be a part of the blue brand.
