WWE Breaking News: New NXT Champion Crowned In Osaka, Japan

There’s a new NXT Champion for the second time in two weeks. Shinsuke Nakamura won the NXT Title back at the NXT show in Osaka, Japan tonight.

Nakamura lost the NXT Title to Samoa Joe two weeks ago at NXT Takeover Toronto. That title change was a surprise, but it also set up this obvious change because putting Nakamura over in his home country would obviously be a big story and draw a big reaction from the crowd.

The match is expected to air on WWE NXT television this week.
