Who was in the group Nexus?

Nexus is currently made up of five men: Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, Michael Tarver, and David Otunga. All but one were originally members of the Nexus on WWE's Raw brand. The exception is David Otunga, who was introduced as a new member of Nexus after being traded to Raw from SmackDown.

Wade Barrett is the current leader of Nexus. He first gained attention for his role as Sweet Wade in the parody series NXT. After his time there came to an end, he returned to WWE's main roster with Nexus at Survivor Series 2014. Since then, he has been listed as one of the leaders of the group.

He began his career with WWE as The Undertaker's final challenger before him at WrestleMania XXV. During this match, which ended in a double countout, he adopted a more aggressive style of wrestling that led to him being renamed "The Great White Hope". He went on to win 15 matches between WrestleMania and SummerSlam 2009 before losing his spot as World Heavyweight Champion to John Cena at the Night of Champions 2009 pay-per-view.

After this loss, he started focusing on being a part of Nexus instead.

Who was the alternative to Nexus in WWE?

Wade Barrett led the Nexus alternative, which essentially had the same purpose as Nexus. Barrett, Heath Slater, and Justin Gabriel were sent from Raw to SmackDown, and Jackson was given a new name. Wrestling desperately sought to extract any remaining juice from The Nexus, but The Corre was a complete failure. It ended after only six days, when Wade Barrett returned to announce that he had disbanded Nexus.

He went on to say that if anyone else wanted to join, they could. He then left the ring with Slater and Gabriel following him out. This led to them forming another version of Nexus called The Corre. After just six days, The Corre dissolved when all three members were defeated by Team Cena at the Payback PPV.

Nexus came back during 2015 when John Cena formed another version named The Second Nexus. This Nexus consisted of five people: Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Michael Bennett, Jeff Hardy, and O'Neil. They were all former champions except for O'Neil who was a former world champion. The Second Nexus was supposed to defeat Team Cena at WrestleMania 31, but before they could do so, The Shield attacked them during their match. This led to them being banned from wrestling for one year.

After WrestleMania 31, Cena disbanded The Second Nexus. However, he kept Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose under his contract because both of them were part of The Shield when they attacked him at WrestleMania 31.

Who was the leader of the Nexus in NXT?

The NXT rookies have high-profile feuds with people like John Cena and Randy Orton. Nexus was primarily renowned for intervening in individual matches rather than group matchups. However, its captain, Wade Barrett, had some outstanding performances as a member of the dominant stable.

Wade Barrett was the leader of the Nexus during its time in NXT. The team was primarily known for its involvement in matches where they would intervene in fights between other wrestlers. However, they did have one championship opportunity during their time together in NXT, which they lost to The Shield. After being defeated by The Shield, the Nexus broke up with Barrett at the end of 2011.

Barrett went on to form his own faction called "The British Bulldog Club" with Scott Hall. They were initially just two members but later added Kevin Nash into the mix. The club competed in tournaments where they would be placed against other teams made up of rookies and veterans. The club was successful in most of these tournaments until they came up against The Rock 'n' Sock Connection at the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble. The match was declared a no-contest after The Rock and John Cena were involved in a brawl outside of the ring; this led to The Rock 'n' Sock Connection going over due to popularity. The British Bulldog Club continued to compete in more tournaments but never got another chance at a title.

When did the Nexus first appear in WWE?

The Nexus made their WWE debut in the summer of 2010, causing havoc on Monday Night Raw. The faction, led by NXT season one winner Wade Barrett, wrecked the arena and assaulted everyone who stood in their way.

Wade Barrett's real name is Brian Kendrick. He was a midcarder on ECW before joining the Nexus. He has been involved in brawls with both Cena and Orton and is best friends with CM Punk. After leaving the group, he had a stint in Japan where he became the new International World Heavyweight Champion.

Barrett's partner at the start of the group was Paul Heyman. He is known for being the manager of Brock Lesnar during his time in ECW and now with the Nexus. He has managed other wrestlers like Curtis Axel and David Otunga.

Heyman left the group after they went too far and started getting themselves into dangerous situations. He has since then been hired as Paul Ellering's manager on Raw.

Another member of the group was Tye Dillinger who used to go by the name Tyler Reks. He was a jobber on FCW before joining the Nexus. Reks has been involved in fights with both Orton and Cena and is friends with Punk. After leaving the group, he went on to win the European Championship.
