Since WWE wanted his debut to be a big deal, Shinsuke Nakamura has now been booked for a big match against Sami Zayn, an experienced performer that had spent years honing his craft in ROH. The two of them will be battling it out at a special NXT event in Dallas during Wrestlemania 32 weekend. Triple H wants to keep the momentum rolling for the developmental brand, so expect Nakamura and Zayn to be given plenty of time to work.

Styles is saying that it is not too serious, even though he is currently out of action. He should be available for Final Battle in November.

During the middle of May, New Japan and ROH are teaming up to put on a couple of shows. Two of them will be in Philadelphia at the old ECW arena, while the other two will be held in Toronto. To help make those events even more special, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada will be featured on the card. No word yet on what matches they are being booked for, but the safe bet is that Ring of Honor will use their top stars against them.
