WWE's Boys of Summer

20. The Nexus (2010)

When the season one NXT Rookies surrounded the ring like sharks on the June 7, 2010 edition of Raw, everyone — the Superstars, commentators and entire WWE Universe — was totally in the dark about the devastation that would be witnessed next. The week after winning the first season of WWE NXT, Wade Barrett wasted no time making a monumental impact by leading a havoc-causing invasion of the main event between John Cena and CM Punk. The heinous attack included the rookies dismantling the ring, assaulting Superstars and personnel, and destroying equipment as Raw went off the air.

The group of dangerous rebels would come to be known as The Nexus and, under Barrett's guidance, they changed WWE's landscape and made life hell for Cena all summer long. The Nexus went on to lose a pivotal showdown against Team WWE at SummerSlam, but each member undoubtedly left their mark in a short period of time.
