John Cena has been one of the most successful and popular superstars in WWE history. He is a 16-time world champion and has also helped other wrestlers become big superstars in his career. But Shinske Nakamura probably lost his push due to a mistake made in a 2017 match.
Nakamura has been the former NXT Champion and Royal Rumble winner, but has not yet achieved the distinction of becoming WWE Champion. The discussion on the Mat Men podcast also emphasized what the real reason for Nakamura’s push to stop in WWE was.
Rich Stambolian on the podcast said, “AJ Styles is rich in talent and had already achieved the status of a successful Pro Wrestler before coming here. On the other hand, Nakamura, in a match, he beheaded John Cena Were, perhaps, the reason why WWE decided to drop their push. “
