“Squared Circle Blog: Nexus over heating?”
Well just when you think it can’t get anymore absurd, dammed if it doesn’t. Monday nights Raw was a prime example of heels garnering eat for heat’s sake and nothing more. I sure hope they have a big blow off for this or there will be some backlash to it.
Calling themselves Nexus, the group that has the net buzzing about their antics with John Cena and the Chairman of the Board Mister McMahon. Now depending on your perspective,they upped the anti or reached a whole new low. It started about half way through the show when backstage agent and hall of famer Ricky the Dragon Steamboat was honored by all of the legends that worked back stage. Michel Hayes, Mike Rotunda, Arn Anderson , Dean Malenko and the King himself Jerry Lawler came out to pay their respects to the Dragon on the release of the new DVD chronicling his career .
While the segment was winding down, the Nexus Music began to play and the “7″ all came down and surrounded the ring. Well not all of them, their leader and NXT first season winner Wade Barrett was supposedly at WWE offices having to explain what they did to Vince last week. Six of the seven surrounded the ring while all the legends stripped off their jackets and Ties to prepare for battle. The long and short of it is they cleared the ring of everybody except Steamboat and then they all did to him what they had done to Cena and Vince the Weeks before.
These guys have enough heat on them with out jacking it up more. Right know these seven guys couldn’t be hated anymore if they wanted to. Orders came down from the faceless GM via Email to Michal Cole that if Nexus Members touch any raw superstar they would be fired. But the rub was Raw superstars couldn’t go after Nexus guys without getting suspended. So the upshot is this faceless GM threw the legends to the wolves for no other reason then to garner more heat on the Nexus group.
