Reason WWE Has Shinsuke Nakamura Working Dark Matches

With John Cena being absent from WWE TV while he films his next movie, Shinsuke Nakamura has taken his place on Smackdown with wrestling dark matches after the show ends. He has been the brand’s top babyface and will remain in that role.

Nakamura is working dark matches as WWE officials feel that he is large enough of a draw to keep the crowd from leaving before the 205 Live show begins.
