Backstage Note on Shinsuke Nakamura and WWE Network, Bad Stat on WWE Injuries, The Rock Wins Award

Shinsuke Nakamura

– This is a scary stat for WWE but every talent who left WrestleMania 31 as champion is currently out of action with an injury: then-United States Champion John Cena, then-Divas Champion Nikki Bella, then-Intercontinental Champion Daniel Bryan, then-WWE Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Tyson Kidd, and then-WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

– The Rock won the Favorite Cable TV Actor Award for his role in HBO’s Ballers, at the People’s Choice Awards last night. Rock’s Fast 7 also won awards for Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie. Rock posted this video:

– We noted before that the WWE Network launched in Japan this week. MLW Radio, which often breaks WWE stories, reports that the company is looking at current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura to be one the faces of the Network launch in Japan. This was a role that was previously considered for Hideo Itami, who is still injured.
