Shinsuke Nakamura was signed to help continue this for the yellow brand, but it was always claimed that he would not be with NXT for too long.
With the signing of Bobby Roode and Austin Aries, Nakamura leaving doesn’t hurt as much.
Ring of Honor great Roderick Strong is also rumored to be with WWE by September, which allows for names to leave even more than before.
While naturally assumed that Nakamura would be needed for a while longer, the top names coming in surely helps the NXT brand stay hot even with the loss of someone like Nakamura.
The plan still is for him to win the NXT Championship from Samoa Joe, but don’t be surprised if he drops it sooner than most assume.
