NXT radicals, The new nWo, NXT World Order, these seven men have been labeled different things. Now that they have contracts, the members of NXT Season One have revealed the name of their cause: Nexus.
Nexus: a connected series or group.
When the NXT rookies first started out on NXT, they made a vow to each other that no matter who won the competition, they would all earn WWE contracts. And even though Wade Barrett earned his contract, had a secured Championship Title match at a PPV, he aligned himself with his fellow brethren out of loyalty. Wade Barrett was Nexus’ only connection with WWE after the season ended. And with that connection came a revolution.
John Cena has been caught in the fray on three different occasions. Contrary to popular belief, it is not because he was the WWE Champion. But because he is the epicenter of the WWE franchise. John Cena stands for everything that WWE Management expects from WWE superstars. And for anyone that is not aware, Nexus is retaliating against WWE Management.
After Fatal 4-Way went off the air, John Cena vowed that he would not rest until he took out everyone on Nexus. Yet, when Nexus came out and eventually attacked Tyson Kidd and DH Smith the following night on RAW, where was John Cena? The Hart Dynasty’s grudge with Nexus began when they decided to take Bret Hart for a joy ride. Then Nexus attacked the Harts at the Fatal 4-Way PPV. John Cena could have aligned himself with The Hart Dynasty to get some much-needed payback, but the loyalty that Cena wears on his sleeve is thin.
When Mr. McMahon strutted out to the ring at the start of RAW, a sense of assurance shone through the darkness covering RAW. If anyone could deal with the Nexus problem it would be Mr. Vincent Kennedy McMahon, right? Instead of assurance, McMahon took credit for the actions of Nexus, especially for having a reason to release Bret Hart from his managerial duties. Nexus, on the other hand, did not appreciate McMahon taking credit.
Attacking John Cena, C.M. Punk, The Hart Dynasty, Matt Striker, Jerry Lawler, Justin Roberts, and other WWE employees is one thing, but nobody crosses the Chairman of the Board. What does Nexus have to gain by taking out Mr. McMahon? They all have contracts, which was their initial goal. What more can they want?
As for the fate of the WWE is concerned, Wade Barrett has already set his sights on becoming the new WWE Champion. And with Nexus on his side, the probability of Barrett wearing the belt is almost a certainty.
