  • Does Shinsuke Nakamura drink alcohol: Not Known
  • Soon after his debut at ‘New Japan Pro Wrestling’ in 2002, Nakamura was given the nickname ‘Super Rookie’ because of his strength, agility and overall technical skills. Being trained in “vale tundo”, he is also a fine Mixed Martial Artist.
  • Though Nakamura signed with the WWE in 2016, he was just on the verge of joining the company 10 years prior in 2006. However, since Brock Lesnar left ‘NJPW’ around the same time, the promotion recalled Nakamura with a lucrative contract that he couldn’t refuse.
  • Just like the Undertaker, Nakamura is getting better with age. Though he has always been a promising prospect, he only gained the much-needed recognition around the year 2010. He was even crowned the ‘Wrestler of the Year’ by ‘Wrestling Observer Newsletter’ in 2014.
  • Nakamura is very close friends with none other than The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. The two even trained together at Lesnar’s personal gym during Lesnar’s time in Japan.
  • Although he has used the same finisher in both the wrestling promotions, its name was changed from ‘Bomaye’ (NJPW) to Kinshasa (WWE).
  • At NJPW, Nakamura held the IWGP Intercontinental title five times, the most number of reigns by any wrestler at the promotion.
  • In 2012, Shinsuke was honored with the duty of throwing out the opening pitch for a Major League Baseball game. Notably, throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game is a standard celebrity affair, but it was still a pretty big honor, considering Nakamura was quite far from being a major star in the United States.Shinsuke Nakamura baseball
  • He has even featured in the 2013 mega-hit music video, “Happy”.
