News On Injury That Forced Shinsuke Nakamura Out Big Title Match

As noted, Shinsuke Nakamura was originally slated to challenge Jeff Hardy for the United States Title on tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live in Ontario, CA at the Citizens Business Bank Arena. However, that match has been nixed as WWE has announced that Nakamura suffered an injury and is longer no medically cleared to compete.

In an update according to Pwinsider.com and Dave Meltzer, Nakamura was pulled from the show after an incident where he was bitten by a dog.

The story is that once police brought in a dog to sniff around the arena for a security measure at Monday’s live event, the dog bit him in the leg. It was noted that his leg is still very sore from the incident.
