HOUSTON — Mere hours before he would step in the ring to face John Cena in a Chairs Match, Wade Barrett made his cruel intentions clear at the expense of Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov. Brutalizing the WWE Tag Team Champions with a steel chair following their disqualification victory over Nexus members Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel, the vicious Englishman sent a direct message to John Cena — their battle later in the night would be a war.

The underhanded act was yet another example of the brutal lengths The Nexus is willing to go to in order to make an impact. After losing their WWE Tag Team Titles to Marella & Kozlov on the Dec. 6 edition of Raw, Slater & Gabriel should have been focused on getting their slimy hands back on the championships. But tonight wasn't about title glory, it was about putting fear into John Cena.

With Nexus brutes Husky Harris & Michael McGillicutty causing a disqualification after blatantly attacking Kozlov, the four members of the yellow and black horde immediately swarmed on the WWE Tag Team Champions and began to tear them apart. And then Wade Barrett entered.

Stalking to the ring with a steel chair in his clenched fist, Barrett looked like a man intent on raising hell and did just that, battering the hapless tag team with vicious whacks from the chair. Standing above the fallen bodies, the Englishman exuded an air of supreme confidence that seemed to form a much-needed solidarity in The Nexus.

After weeks of uncertainty and infighting, the band of rebels looks to be more focused than ever and they are coming for John Cena.
