The landscape of the WWE changed drastically last night at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Champions retained but evil agendas were accomplished. The two most prominent changes were John Cena joining The Nexus, and Paul Bearer siding with Kane.
Aside from WWE screwing up by airing a television spot for its next PPV, WWE Bragging Rights, which featured The Nexus, it did not appear that the group would disband so easily. WWE is clearly pushing Nexus as one of the most important factions in the company’s history. The Chairman of WWE, Mr. McMahon, even sacrificed himself in an angle to push the Nexus even further. Nexus even headlined the majority of SmackDown’s Live debut on the ScyFy network, they have interfered in possibly every main-event, including participating in the main-events in the previous four pay-per-views, what would make people think that John Cena would be able to silence the faction forever?
The “fan-interference” angle has not been used in WWE since SummerSlam 2009, when Brett DiBiase caused a distraction in a WWE Heavyweight title match between John Cena and Randy Orton. The fans in question may have something to do with David Otunga‘s plan to help Nexus leader Wade Barrett without getting him disqualified. The first fan to jump into the ring, whose face was covered for the most part, was a well-built caucasian male, while the other who attacked John Cena was a bearded husky caucasian male. With that said, The Nexus may have recruited both Michael McGillicutty and Husky Harris to the Nexus band. And with John Cena now obligated to join, Nexus would now have brought its membership back to eight.
Out of the depths of hell, Paul Bearer has returned from the dead to aid The Undertaker… for the most part. Paul Bearer was considered the ray of hope, as he returned when Undertaker was most vulnerable after suffering a loss to Kane at Night of Champions. But has everyone forgotten what Taker did to Paul Bearer? He buried him in a cement casket match. Unlike when Paul Bearer returned to stand by UT at WrestleMania XX, Hell in a Cell was the birth place of Kane. So in the twenty-first Hell in a Cell match, Paul Bearer recreated the treason on 1997. Kane was always The Father of Destruction’s Favorite Son…
