Last night on Smackdown Live WWE’s marquee superstar John “wins everything” Cena faced off against the “King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura in a no.1 contenders match, the winner would go on to face Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam. To many people’s surprise Shinsuke Nakamura won the match but he almost broke Cena’s neck in a botched suplex. 

After the maych you could see Nakamura apologize but his apology isn’t keeping the WWE universe from criticizing him with many calling him an unsafe performer and reckless even though this is one of the few times he’s botched a move. As a result we’ll get Nakamura vs Mahal at Summerslam for the WWE Championship  but it looks as if Baron Corbin is going to cash in his Money In The Bank Contract when Nakamura wins. If the former IWGP heavyweight and intercontinental champion beats Mahal this would be his first title in WWE outside of its development brand NXT where he’s a two time NXT Champion.
