Shinsuke Nakamura Bought Karl Anderson's Food For SIX MONTHS

Proof that Shinsuke is one of the nicest dudes in pro wrestling...

"I take care".

Those were Shinsuke Nakamura's words to a skint Karl Anderson when the pair worked together in New Japan before reaching WWE.

After a show one night, Naka had asked if the future OC man fancied grabbing some dinner at a nearby restaurant. That's when Anderson, who was embarrassed by his financial predicament, admitted that he didn't really have enough money to pay for it and tried to make excuses. Confused, Shinsuke marched him to a cash machine, and asked to see how much cash his peer had.

As Karl told Lilian Garcia's 'Chasing Glory' podcast, he punched in his pin number, hit the 'Balance' button and revealed a measly $14 propping up his account.


That's when Nakamura uttered the "I take care" line, and refused to take no for an answer. He ended up buying Anderson's meals for the next six months until his new friend was back on his feet and could afford to eat properly.

This is something Karl has never forgotten. He couldn't believe that someone who didn't need to be was so generous, and he made a pal for life.
