Shinsuke Nakamura isn't really receiving the push we thought he would be after his big Royal Rumble win earlier this year but he is the current United States Champion and is a big part of the WWE 2K19 video game. During a recent interview, he was asked about seeing himself in the title and had nothing but good things to say about what 2K Games has done with bringing his likeness into the game.
As for his rating (he has an 87 which puts him on the same level as Randy Orton and Finn Balor but behind the likes of Samoa Joe and Seth Rollins), he's hoping for some changes. "I want to be higher," he laughed. "But it's all about the [individual] player, right? It's all about the skill. So hopefully, next year, I'll be higher." You can't blame him for that but it's a decent enough spot to be fair!
As for his history with video games, Nakamura noted that he was a big fan of Fire Pro Wrestling but he's no longer much of a gamer because he finds current console releases a little too complicated.
"I don't play [games] much [today], but some wrestlers bring their video games, and sometimes, very rarely, I play," Nakamura said, before adding: "Console video games these days are too complicated for me, because I have to use all my fingers!" So, if you want to beat the King of Strong Style, it seems that all you have to do is challenge him to a match...on a video game, that is.
