From Cenation to “CeNexus”

After coming up short against Wade Barrett at Hell in a Cell 2010, a special stipulation called for John Cena to join the loathsome Nexus faction. Left little choice but to do the unthinkable and wear the fateful “N” armband, the misery and humiliation Cena endured truly made him wish that the WWE Universe could not see him.

Perhaps this was never more evident than when Cena and David Otunga were ordered to intentionally lose the WWE Team Titles to fellow Nexus members Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel just 24 hours after winning the championship gold in the first place.

Despite his compliance, Cena was eventually fired for failing to help Barrett win a match against Randy Orton. However, the Cenation leader storm back onto Raw, vowing to take down every member of the rogue group. Barrett would eventually rehire Cena, paving the way for one of the greatest WWE Champions of all time to finally defeat The Barrett Barrage at WWE: Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2010.
