Cool Nakamura. Some wrestlers are awesome people in almost every situation. They have a lot of things on their plates as wrestlers, with a combination of staying in shape, traveling, staying fresh, and the whole wrestling thing. It doesn’t help when you might not be making much money, but sometimes someone with some money can help you out and it makes for an awesome story.
The OC recently appeared on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast. During the appearance, Karl Anderson told a story of finally making it to New Japan, but he arrived with only $14 to his name. Shinsuke Nakamura, an established New Japan star, found out about this and, after seeing Anderson’s bank account, bought Anderson food every day for the next six months until Anderson was on his feet financially.
Anderson and Nakamura have met again in WWE. Check out their backstage argument:
Opinion: That’s a very cool thing for Nakamura to do as he was under no obligation to do something like this but was willing to help out someone who was in trouble. Not many people would actually do something like this as it is one thing to talk about helping someone out but in this case, Nakamura actually backed it up with action. How many other people would actually do that?
How cool is this for Nakamura? What is next for Anderson and Gallows in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
