We walk alone in the unknown. We live to win another victory. We are the young dying sons. We live to change the face of history – “We Are One” 12 Stones
The Nexus started out as a renegade coalition of eight men, but it has dwindled down to six. The Nexus are not weaker because of the downsize. On the contrary, Wade Barrett’s decree that everyone–including himself–would fight for their place in The Nexus has strengthen them. They have weeded out the weak and now live to change the face of history.
The Anonymous General Manager of RAW issued that the ban on The Nexus be lifted, allowing them now to compete for titles. Wade Barrett, winner of Season One of NXT, chose wisely to cash in his guaranteed title opportunity at the pay-per-view of his choosing against Sheamus for the WWE Heavyweight title at Night of Champions. However, that title match has been made into a 6-pack challenge to include four former world champions.
At Night of Champions all titles will be on the line, including the newly created WWE Tag Team titles held currently by The Hart Dynasty, the final holders of the WWE Unified Tag Team titles. With Skip Sheffield and David Otunga defeating the team of R-Truth and John Morrison to retain their spots on Nexus, it would not be at all farfetched to see them in the tag title picture at the pay-per-view. If Nexus does come in possession of the WWE Tag Team belts, the “Freebird Rule” may indeed take effect with any member being able to defend.
The Miz’s United States championship must also be defended at Night of Champions. But the scenario of Daniel Bryan, a former Nexus member, challenging for the title seems more likely than either Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel, or Michael Tarver.
With The Nexus now allowed to contend for titles, the true dominance over WWE will soon occur.
