Match – Shinsuke Nakamura vs AJ Styles for the World Heavyweight Championship
Summary – Two words, DREAM MATCH! I don’t know a single wrestling fan alive not excited for this one. AJ Styles has been the best overall male performer of the last two years. The fans have been behind him and he has shown time and time again just how well rounded he is. My only question about Styles is how injured is he really? Hopefully not enough to take away from this match.
Shinsuke Nakamura came into the WWE with a large ground swell of fan support. It worked for him in NXT but he has struggled a bit on the main roster. That aside, there is no taking away from his Bell to Bell skill set, and the continued fan support.
The crowd at the Royal Rumble exploded for his victory and the WWE appears to be behind him. With Styles having a history of playing the heel, combined with the fan support of Nakamura, it appears this one may be headed in the direction of Nakamura.
No matter who wins this match, the fans will be treated to an instant classic. Not since the days of HBK vs Bret Hart, or Ricky The Dragon Steamboat vs The Macho Man have so many people been this excited for one match. Again, these guys earned it and will deliver!
Prediction – Shinsuke Nakamura wins the World Heavyweight Championship
Reason – Nakamura will not work as a heel, AJ Styles will. Simple solution, Nakamura wins in a 25 minute show stealing classic, both men hug afterwards and then Styles attacks him on either Smackdown or the next PPV.
Three things to remember about this one. Shinsuke Nakamura will win the belt. AJ Styles will turn heel soon after and odds are this is the best match of the night.
