According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, we can assume that Shinsuke Nakamura is making quite a bit of coin. They've reported that Nakamura will be starting off in NXT and that he'll be the first NXT Superstar to make WWE Main Event caliber money. While no one can confirm how long Nakamura will be staying in NXT, it's interesting to see that he'll be making big bucks to start off with WWE's developmental brand.
What makes this news so interesting is the lack of success that WWE has had with Japanese stars in the past and how much they appear to be betting on his success with this deal. That being said, let's hope this works out, as Nakamura is a terrific in-ring competitor who can provide a lot to the WWE.
