Yes they did. Just because it didn't happen right at the finish doesn't mean it didn't happen. They distracted the ref on their way out, not allowing Shinsuke to get the pin.

And then Jinder out-wrestled Nakamura and won.

That's why it's effectively clean.

There's degrees of clean and "hit him in the middle with his move and pinned him with nothing dirty immediately surrounding it" is far cleaner than Jinder deserves against Nakamura. If you have to do this poo poo then at least give Nakamura the decency of a low blow or something.

Nakamura did have a good Orton match too, that was interesting, but he also seems to be "I'm 40, my body is poo poo, why not cash out and coast on my physical charisma and spots that pop the crowd?"

Nakamura has done plenty of cool things in NXT and WWE. You're letting the lame poo poo overshadow it because it was almost exclusively on PPV while the cool stuff was almost exclusively on TV.

If what people say about Kenny is to be believed (he's in it for the wrestling, not the money) then I have extreme doubts he'll sign with them while Vince is around.

Thing is with the way he wrestles, I think Vince could very well out last him.

All should aspire to be like wrestling Buddhist Kota Ibushi who only does exactly what he wants to for the thrill and not for money. Sometimes that's competing in the G1 Climax, sometimes that's competing in the CWC, sometimes that is lighting fireworks out of his rear end in a top hat as people around him scream in horror.

for every Owens, a guy who's dream is WWE there is a Nakamura who knows where the early retirement money is.

I'm not sure Vince sees Kenny as the next GUY so If the WWE offers him a deal it'd be the typical NXT to main roster one which I doubt Kenny signs as the money for that is probably worse than what he makes in New Japan.

And if they offer him big money they'll end up using him like any foreign promotion top guy, they'll have him job out for a few months to make him a WWE guy. I mean they did it to Ric Flair when he came in with the NWA belt

The Jinder Finish™ is unstoppable. Every wrestler will lose by being distracted by The Singh Brothers and you're a god drat fool if you think otherwise. Despite them interfering in 100% of Jinder's matches, every challenger has the IQ of Sting and never anticipates it.

We really need a match where someone does to the Singh Brothers what Roman Reigns did to the Miztourage a couple weeks ago

Seriously it's kinda funny, there's a lot of parallels between the roles the Singh Brothers and the Miztourage fulfill, but the latter work so much better

drat, I forgot that because I was just thinking about the big pop he got. I guess it has to be Fastlane then, where Goldberg beat Owens in 22 seconds.

I love how twitter insiders are talking as if guys like Ricochet and Fred Yehi are still WWE bound even with thus Neville situation.

Speaking of which his WWE is handling things with Neville shows they are clueless. If they had any sense they would not grant him a release even if he never intends to return. They're now going to open the floodgates and let others follow him out. Thanks for helping New Japan, ROH and the indies WWE!
