"You're either Nexus or you're against us."

- The Nexus tagline

The Nexus is an organization that was formed by Wade Barrett in 2010.


The Nexus was formed on June 1st, 2010 by Wade Barrett. Originally, The Nexus consisted entirely of NXT rookies, with the exception of Barrett, who were all without jobs since NXT climaxed and concluded. Dissatisfied with their unemployment, Barrett formed the group with the main objective of being given jobs through violent methods. The group then consisted of Barrett as leader and Daniel Bryan, Darren Young, Skip Sheffield, Micheal Tarver, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, David Otunga and Husky Harris as rookies.

The 'New Nexus'Edit


- The 'New Nexus' tagline

Shortly after their debut, Nexus collapsed due to Wade Barrett leaving the group. The group was re-established by Phillip Brooks, who dogged it as 'New Nexus'. New Nexus operated differently to the original Nexus, and no longer performed random attacks against it's enemies. The New Nexus was even more short-lived than the original Nexus, however, and dissolved within 2 months of it being established.
