Backstage Update on AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura and Other NJPW Stars Possibly Signing with WWE

AJ Styles

– As noted, WWE has reportedly signed top New Japan Pro Wrestling stars AJ Styles, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson and current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.

It was indicated on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that there are Royal Rumble main event surprises planned and some of these names could appear in the match.

It was also noted that Nakamura and Styles were apparently not signed to be on the NXT roster. They could always work NXT events or be sent down for a few shows but word is they were not signed for that brand, indicating main roster plans.

Regarding Nakamura, he is not coming in right away and is expected to drop his title and work a notice, unlike Alberto Del Rio with AAA.
