WWE Intercontinental champion Shinsuke Nakamura has been cleared.
The performer posted an x-ray on his Instagram Story and stated he is “cleared to fight”.
Nakamura has been dealing with a hand injury, which he revealed to Ryan Satin on the Out of Character podcast earlier this month.
The 41-year old last wrestled on December 18th on a live event teaming with Rick Boogs against Happy Corbin & Madcap Moss.
Nakamura has not been officially listed for the Royal Rumble on Saturday. He was the winner of the match in 2018, which led to a championship match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 34.
