Shinsuke Nakamura is not a happy man in WWE as he continues to make veiled threats that are causing rumours to run rampant.
Shinsuke Nakamura is showing an even more ruthless side to his personality in recent weeks. One by one he has defeated the male members of Alpha Academy, most recently beating Chad Gable on Raw in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
However, it was Nakamura’s promo after the match that really caught people’s attention as he appeared to be sending a message to someone telling them that he was tired of waiting and asking “Where are you?”

Is Shinsuke Nakamura Really Calling Out CM Punk For WWE Return?
Nakamura’s vague threats have led many to wonder if his message is for CM Punk. CM Punk was fired by AEW following his backstage altercation with Jack Perry at All In and since then, many have wondered if Punk will return to WWE.
It has been made clear that Randy Orton will be part of WarGames at WWE Survivor Series so fans don’t expect Punk will be part of that match.
Fightful Select has reported that no matter who Nakamura is referring to in his promos, WWE remains tight-lipped with talent not informed what the end goal for his storyline is. Other names suggested for Nakamura’s target include AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar who both have been out of action for several months.
