UPDATE: The Wrestling Observer has offered a little clarification on Nakamura’s contract. The site noted that Nakamura isn’t making “millions” like John Cena and Randy Orton, but is making main roster-level money.
ORIGINAL: The Wrestling Observer reports that Shinsuke Nakamura will be making quite a bit of money when he debuts with the WWE. It’s said that he will be the first NXT superstar to get WWE main event level money. The signing is being treated like a major sports story in Japan. The press conference in Tokyo on February 22 at the Hard Rock had over 100 reporters, photographers and videographers in attendance.
There’s no word on how long Nakamura will be in NXT, but he will likely have a “significant run” there.
