The dream feud between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura will continue, for now. If the recent announcement of the company is to go by, then they will feature in another mouth-watering match at the upcoming PPV event named Backlash. We are just a few days away from that.
Following the Wrestlemania dream match between these two, the challenger turned into a heel, all of a sudden. Nakamura delivered an unprecedented low blow to the champion which was unexpected. The audience was stunned to see this.
But, from this point onwards the rivalry received an entirely new complexion. With both men being the babyface personas, the storyline would have become pale which is not the case, right now. A heel-turned Artist is much better to see on TV than a favourite fan superstar.
Ever since the Japanese star came to the main roster, the critics and audience complained about not giving him the desired push. As a babyface, he never had the opportunity to pick up the momentum. But, as a villain, it is a different scene, altogether.
By hitting low blows to the champion, the former NXT Champion has taken his heel level to a whole new path. With ‘no speak English’ gimmick, he is looking an obnoxious person who can go to any level to snatch the title from AJ Styles.
Even at the bygone Greatest Royal Rumble event, the match concluded with a low blow from Nakamura. AJ was able to seek retribution by smashing chair-shots on his back, as the match got disqualified. So, this upcoming match at Backlash was foreseeable.
