Speculating on the Mystery Opponent for Shinsuke Nakamura at Survivor Series

An absent WWE Superstar could return to television for the first time in months to accept Shinsuke Nakamura’s challenge at Survivor Series.

The King of Strong Style recently underwent an attitude change, and has been much more aggressive since on WWE RAW. He demolished Akira Tozawa last week on the red brand, and followed it up with a win over Otis last night on RAW. The veteran is scheduled to battle Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable next week on RAW as well.

Shinsuke Nakamura has also been cutting ominous backstage promos in his native tongue in recent weeks. Last night, he admitted that he was frustrated, and addressed someone who has been “blessed with so much privilege”. The veteran added that he will wait for the mystery star for now because he knows how it will end.

Many fans are predicting the mystery star to either be Randy Orton or CM Punk. However, there is another star that could accept the challenge at Survivor Series. Karrion Kross has not appeared on WWE television since his loss to AJ Styles on the August 11 edition of SmackDown.

Kross is on his second run with the company, and has been unable to connect with fans on the main roster. Nakamura could be referring to Kross as being privileged for getting another opportunity with the company following his release in 2021. Kross shared a new cryptic video after he wasn’t booked for this past Friday’s SmackDown.

Former WWE writer Vince Russo has not been a fan of Shinsuke Nakamura’s recent promos on RAW. Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW show, Russo noted that he enjoyed Shinsuke Nakamura’s cryptic promos while he was feuding with Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship. However, the wrestling veteran believes that the promotion will run his promos into the ground, and fans will eventually grow tired of them.

The anticipation for Survivor Series on November 25 is off the charts. Only time will tell which WWE Superstar eventually responds to Shinsuke Nakamura. Which match are you looking forward to the most at Survivor Series? Let us know in the comments section below.
