For many, including Ryback , at the 2010 SummerSlam PPV , John Cena sabotaged The Nexus , the bunch of revolutionaries who came to WWE to change the landscape of the industry and into ashes. Is Wade Barrett in agreement with this statement?
The answer is yes. The talented Briton, former WWE Superstar and who has been away from the ring after leaving the company, said he even laughed when told that John Cena, as part of Team WWE, would win only two members The Nexus in the PPV SummerSlam 2010.
Here are the statements, captured in video, and which were recently given at a live event, autograph signing and photo shoot by “Inside the Ropes” :
Inside the Ropes: “As part of The Nexus, you beat Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat, beat Vince McMahon and, very chivalrously, beat up Bret Hart. But then came a great fight at SummerSlam 2010, The Nexus Vs. Team WWE and we all thought that Nexus was going to win, but John Cena was the last one to survive. Did you guys think they were going to win or that John Cena and the other team were going to get upstairs? “
Wade Barrett: “Not only did we think we were going to win, as this was the first test of this killer group we had, it was our first test and it was against the WWE Superstars, we were newbies and we had a lot of hatred of Part of the public and we believed that it was our opportunity to demonstrate our credibility and that we were going to win.
“And then we asked him, ‘Why is John Cena winning? We really need to win this fight! ‘ Then Arn Anderson put his hand up and said as if swearing, ‘This has nothing to do with me. They’ll have to go and talk to Vince (McMahon) about this. ‘
“So, trying to talk to Vince on a pay-per-view (PPV) day or a day where there’s a TV show is difficult, so we spent almost an hour following him and waiting outside his Office to be able to talk to him.
“And we talked to him and we said, ” Vince, we have this situation, we have just been told that John Cena is going to win and leave as a figure of the fight. We think it’s a bad idea and we have to be victorious. ‘
“And Vince looked me in the eye and said, ‘The reason we’re going to do that is because SummerSlam needs to have a happy ending’ … Which is a different sort of ‘happy end’ than you guys are imagining Laughter). I wanted the children to go home happy and against that point you can not do anything.
“From that moment I knew that they were lying to me. It was a meaningless response and to this day I still believe it was a terrible idea and I do not think you’re going to find someone with a certain level of rationality who says that was a correct decision.
