Will WWE star Shinsuke Nakamura be more popular than John Cena?
There have been charismatic WWE stars before, but there is something special about Shinsuke Nakamura. It starts with the piercing violin entrance theme, which sends fans into a frenzy and screaming in unison. His “strong style” wrestling, incorporating actual martial arts techniques, make him one of the sports' most unique and intriguing athletes.
Nakamura’s Japanese roots will also bring international fans to the WWE in droves. Expect to see Nakamura with a WWE belt around his waist very soon.
Nakamura is going to be a good wrestler, but he will never reach the same stratosphere as John Cena. His in-ring character personifies swagger that cannot be equaled. And you want to talk about popular theme songs? Look no further than the most meme’d one, provided by the trumpets of John Cena. Nakamura may bring an international audience, but Cena is equally marketable worldwide and he speaks fluent Mandarin.
Cena’s crossover success into television and film also give him an edge over any wrestler daring to challenge his popularity. And no one in the world has granted more wishes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation than the Doctor of Thuganomics himself.
Nakamura will be good. Cena will always be better.
