Shinsuke Nakamura Refuses to Compete on Smackdown, Injured Star Returns on WWE 205 Live (Videos)

Nakamura Refuses to Compete

WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura was noticeably absent from this week’s episode of Smackdown Live. WWE uploaded a video to YouTube after the fact claiming that The Artist actually “refused” to compete on the blue brand this Tuesday night until better competition presents itself, which you can check out below.

In reality, it is believed that Nakamura and a few others are actually with the Raw brand, which has departed for a short international tour with stops in London, England and Osaka, Japan.

The Heart of 205 Live Returns

WWE Superstar Mustafa Ali returned to television this Tuesday after several weeks out of action, selling the effects of a series of brutal assaults at the hands of Hideo Itami. The so-called “Heart” of the 205 Live brand stormed the ring to stop Itami from maiming yet another individual, which you can check out in the footage below.
