Shinsuke Nakamura (?? ??, Nakamura Shinsuke, born February 24, 1980) is a Japanese professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist.
He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand, and is the current WWE Intercontinental Champion in his first reign.
Prior to his main roster debut, Nakamura competed in WWE's NXT brand, where he is one of only two wrestlers (along with Samoa Joe) to have held the NXT Championship on more than one occasion.
In January 2018, Nakamura won the 2018 Men's Royal Rumble match, and later won the United States Championship two-times.
In 2019 at Extreme Rules, Nakamura won the Intercontinental Championship for the first time (making him the second wrestler, behind Chris Jericho, to hold both WWE and IWGP Intercontinental Championships.)
Nakamura is perhaps best known for his work in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), where he is a former three-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion, with his first reign coming at the age of 23 years and 9 months; his other accomplishments within the company include winning the 2011 G1 Climax and the 2014 Japan Cup, being a record five-time and the longest reigning IWGP Intercontinental Champion, and being the final NWF Heavyweight Champion.
He is also a founding member and the original leader of the stable Chaos.
