We are just two months away from one of WWE’s biggest pay-per-view events of the year, as Summerslam again returns to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 20th.

The event is rumoured to be on that WWE wants a lot of eyes on, and big matches are already being talked about for both Raw and Smackdown’s biggest stars. These include a potential Kurt Angle vs Triple H match, as well as Roman Reigns challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title.

But this latest rumour is set to draw the attention of many hardcore fans.

According to various reports, Shinsuke Nakamura will be facing Sami Zayn in a rematch from their NXT classic in April last year.

This match would no doubt be one of the hottest on the card, and would allow two of the blue brand’s brightest stars to shine.

These rumours are going to circulate until either man is announced for a match, so look for WWE to start planting potential seeds as early as this episode of Smackdown.

Keep in mind that Smackdown Live still has one more PPV before the Summerslam event, but the build will begin for the latter in the coming weeks due to the magnitude in which the company is hoping it will be presented.

Would you be excited for this NXT rematch? Where do the likes of AJ Styles and Randy Orton fit on the card?
