Shinsuke Nakamura gets a title shot from Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins has found himself a fresh contender for his WWE World Heavyweight Championship as Shinsuke Nakamura has been officially granted a title match in the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.

Nakamura put himself in the line of sight of world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins last week after attacking the champ and laying the groundwork for a potential showdown at the Payback PPV event. Following this, Nakamura was invited for an interview with Michael Cole to shed light on his actions.

Even though Nakamura mostly spoke in Japanese during the interview, it was clear he wanted to challenge Rollins for the championship. Rollins came out and agreed to the challenge. Then, Nakamura whispered something to Rollins, distracting him for a moment. Using this distraction to his advantage, Nakamura hit Rollins with another Kinshasa before leaving the ring.
