Shinsuke Nakamura Has a Hand Injury, Rick Boogs Says

Shinsuke Nakamura is dealing with a hand injury that has kept him out of action recently, Rick Boogs said in a recent interview with “Out of Character.”

When asked about a possible singles run for himself, Boogs said:

“I think it’s inevitable that it’s gonna happen. I’m not looking to rush it by any means because I feel like me and Shin have not even scratched the surface yet of what we can do together, combining our forces. We’re just getting cooking here. We’ve only had a couple of tag matches together.

And he suffered a hand injury that’s kept him out for close to two months now it seems like. So, I’m kind of just looking forward as of right now for him to be healthy and cleared and then us just kick some tail. And then from there, down the road we’ll branch off. I’m in no rush with that.”

Nakamura last wrestled on a WWE house show on December 18, so he’s only been out of action for about three weeks. In that match, he and Boogs defeated Happy Corbin & Madcap Moss. Nakamura has remained on TV in Boogs’ corner recently.
