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.

Since the brand has been growing in popularity as of late, a lot of WWE fans were excited at the prospect of some of the developmental wrestlers being used at Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, though, that might not be happening after all. Reports have surfaced that management is looking to trim the Andre the Giant battle royal down to only 20 participants. That makes it harder for the likes of Finn Balor, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens to get spots.
