Shinsuke Nakamura and Sami Zayn have formed quite the bond as they continue team up during Nakamura’s run as WWE Intercontinental Champion. During tonight’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown episode, Zayn surprised the champion with a brand new belt to celebrate his reign, a gift that Zayn says is because Nakamura is a “stud.”

The belt – which you can see in the tweets below – is a much grander one than the belt that Nakamura currently had. Instead of a white leather, the new belt features black leather, and a seemingly more intricate design on the front. Needless to say, it’s a big upgrade for Nakamura, and a great gift from one of his biggest fans.
