"Joseph Gallows"
"Bryan Danielson"

I'm also tired of him making choking noises when someone gets their throat dropped on the ropes.

It was a one match PPV, but what made it worse was the fact that most of the other matches minus Kane/Rey all had the feel of matches that could have easily been done on Raw or Smackdown. Orton/Sheamus was a good match, but I hate seeing endings like when I pay for PPVs considering how the ended Kofi/Ziggler and LaCool's beating down of Melina. I am cool with one of those things endings for a match on a PPV not twice. I thought Kane/Rey was supposed to be a casket match anyway? It was cool to see someone especially Kane end one of this surprise returns with the returnee getting owned.

As for the Nexus/WWE match, they at least made Danielson look like a star in the making now what they do with that is completely up in the air. If anything for one night, he looked great besides the big dogs of the WWE. The thing with Edge/Jericho/Cena was predictable yet I really don't blame Edge or Jericho. You see the guy coming at you, jump down from the apron, Jesus, John is really that hard? On a serious note, the super-Cena ending was just boring and stale. Nexus falls into the background maybe or maybe they come back strong who knows and really now that Cena was able to beat two of their best by himself, who cares? I am also not thrilled with NXT 2.0 doing the exact same thing and having more then likely the same results.

The show was 4 hours long and maybe an hour and half of good things. The Kane/Sheamus promo was just awkward. As much as the IWC loves Miz, his promo went on forever even with a few good lines. The LaCool appearance should have been done on Raw. It was just a very long PPV with an ending we should have seen a mile away instead we hoped the WWE would do something different.

Mixed bag. Daniel Bryan returning and being Mr. SummerSlam Surprise Main Eventer is probably the most satisfying IWC pandering since WM XX, and it hopefully won't be ruined in the near future by delayed drug tragedy/horrifying cild murder. Orton/Sheamus was a very god match, and I understand the rationale behind the ending, but surely a cheap-o Sheamus win could have been worked in there. A pin, even with interference, is prefereable to a DQ. I like the set-up of Undertaker being weakened and now no match for Kane. Hopefully they do something with that.

But that ending, man. I don't think it immediately destroys the mystique of Nexus or somehow makes them irrelevant, but it does bring them back down to Earth and kinda end their rampage. They should probably trim the fat and cut the core group down to Sheffield, Gabriel, Slater and Barrett.

Another thought - the LayCool/Melina post-match encounter could lead to the unification of the Women's/Diva's Championship and rid us of that Mariah Carey Belt for good? Especially with such a depleted women's roster nowadays...

The main event slightly salvaged the show, but it was still one of the least memorable Slams I can remember. Not bad, just more like a 3 hour Raw special until the main event.

Why pretend to elevate the IC belt by placing it on PPV and then have the Nexus ruin it? We already bought the PPV, you don't have to get them over as a threat. Nexus losing the main event made it even worse.

I agree that this felt more like a three hour Raw and less like a #2 pay-per-view, honestly. Then again, I feel that big PPV events shouldn't have matches ending in DQ's and Non-contests.

Is the Nexus run over? I don't see where it can go from here since they were all pinned cleanly (except for the one DQ). Obviously Barrett still gets his title shot, though I'm willing to bet that they've completely forgotten about that angle.

I loved the return of Bryan though about two minutes into it, I wanted to have him throw up his arms and choke out Michael Cole. Seriously - that whole Anti-Bryan stuff is just dumb (especially when he's *clearly* a face).

I did chuckle over the fact that he "left" by choking Justin Roberts and returned with a Crossface on Slater (I know that it's not a Benoit move per say but still).

Edit: Heh, beaten on the Raw comment by a couple minutes :)

I've attended two Summerslams live. Last night was the second best Summerslam I've been to, and it was the first worst.

I don't think its over, over, I just think the idea of being a big deal is done. Yeah, WWE implanted as expected, yet Cena was able to beat their relatively top two guys by himself. Team WWE loses Edge and Jericho probably Bret, too, but they got Danielson and the people they attacked on Raw as well as Smackdown now is more then their own numbers. I am also sure WWE will play up the fact that a WWE team that was totally not a page once the bullets started flying was able to beat Nexus. Tonight is going along way on what they are doing to do with Nexus will they implode which seemed to be happening during the match last night or will they attack everyone again or will they finally reveal what this "Big Picture" is or will they attack only to be confronted by a pretty pissed off roster? It will make for an interesting show for tonight, yet after tonight I see them going the way of the Alliance.

The other thing with them being done is that they weren't that big of a threat. They weren't veterans and allstars like the NWO, Alliance and the McMahon-Helmsely faction. They were a couple of rookies who had a good plan in a way won since they did get contracts and decided to keep going when they probably should have stopped. My friend who hasn't seen wrestling in awhile was more impressed with Bryan last night then anyone of else. Nexus looked weak the minute Bryan made the first guy tap in under a minute. Nexus got some shinning moments here and there, but when they went down they went down fairly easy. At the end of the day unless, you have some very good writers, charismatic and cagey wrestling personalities as well as patient fanbase, invasion angles are almost destined to fail or not live up to the hype.

I still can't fathom your reasoning that they weren't a threat because they weren't veterans. Ben Roethlisberger was a rookie, playing his first full season, when he won the Super Bowl. Brock Lesnar was a rookie, having only had 3 fights, when he won the UFC heavyweight championship. Does that mean their opponents didn't need to take them seriously, since they weren't veterans?

Ben pretty much played a full season minus I think three games and lost to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game via spygate the year prior to the Super Bowl. I am sure some sad Seahawks' fans will tell you, he was handed the title instead of winning it, me, I say have a good two minute offense without the QB and Coach yelling at each other then maybe you could have won you that game, maybe. Brock lost his first fight and was pushed to the main event for reasons I am not even sure besides having experienced in the lime light due to his WWE days. I am not against rookies winning, I am against pushing young people people to fast to quick like Brock and Orton's first title run.

My problem with Nexus invading is that one on one they were never built up. Wade was a good leader, but he did not have the credibility to be a person who could come into the WWE and take over. NWO had Hogan as well as the Outsiders and it worked very well. The Four Horseman had Flair, DX had Shawn, McMahon-Helmsley had HHH as well as McMahon family member, the Alliance even with all their problems had Booker T and RVD as well as Austin.

To invade a company like WWE, you need someone that has some at least done something to make you think, damn maybe they can pull this off. Fans bought into Nexus due to the first night beating and I do think the promise that someone from the shadows is the real leader of Nexus ie the new GM. Now, that they lost and no leader showed up, what are they? A bunch of kids who had a good idea of safety in numbers, but when push came to shove they couldn't pull off the win.

By your argument, it means they're opponents don't need to take them seriously until they win a title. The biggest individual win for Nexus so far seems to be Wade beating Mark Henry.

Maybe this PPV setback can redirect the group to exploit the advantage of a stable to nab titles. The tag titles, for instance, seem ripe for the taking; the Harts were softened up last week.

That wasn't my argument at all. My argument was that the fact that they were rookies doesn't mean they're not a threat, specifically citing two rookies who clearly were threats.

And Nexus going after titles would be all well and good except that everyone has apparently forgotten that they were banned from competing in title matches as a result of their attack on the legends. The original statement from the anonymous general manager was that the ban was indefinite, but later in the show, Michael Cole stated that the ban was for 90 days. It's only been 42 days, so they have another PPV or two before they can start chasing gold.

Without being able to compete for gold, what do they threaten? Winning records? They put a whuppin on Bret, and despite the fact that he's not in the peak of health, he came back for SummerSlam. Attacking guys like Steamboat is mean, but it deprives the audience of nothing if they're taken out. Our usual cadre of faces aren't in mortal danger.

Nexus are over as bad guys, but the idea that they threaten the WWE by taking up airtime on RAW or pinning a titleless Cena seem hollow. That's not your assertion; that's the packaging we've gotten from the WWE. And now I think we need something more in the angle. We need the next step.

I'm far more baffled by Nexus jobbing last night. Nexus really losing their first big match is staggeringly stupid. I don't get the booking. John Cena of all people doesn't need to be kept that strong. I honestly figured Bryan was gonna turn on him. Barrett pinning Cena and building to a big money match between them would have been the right move. Last night wasn't the end of Nexus obviously but it did do some damage to Nexus. Imo too early for them to be job.

My friend turned to me at the start of the main event and said: "Tarver, Young, and Killings will be the first 3 gone." I asked why, he said: "Vince will always be Vince." Damn close.

I though just maybe a heel turn for Cena. Atleast the start of a build to one. The sign in the crowd with the Nexus N in Cena looked good. The whole time I wondered why he wasn't in the ring, then he, not willingly, helped eliminate two teamates. I was thinking after the attack outside he was going to be counted out, and as soon as Brian got it down to just him and Barret, he would come in and cost him.


And was Punk's injury legit, or was it to get him out of the ring while his big chest tattoo healed? That thing is huge

Going to come out of my usual lurking as this angle has been worth it.

If this is the end of Nexus V1 I thoroughly enjoyed their run. From an out of the blue kickoff to a decent build to main eventing one of the big 3 PPV's the only real complaints I'd have would be the first week "Daniel Bryan" silliness and the SuperCena ending of last nights main event.

The way they were constantly portrayed as a unit was a refreshing change of pace, none of the usual hinted at as subtly as an elephant rivalries and what have you. Just seven chaps working together to take what they thought should rightfully theirs. I even laughed at/appreciated the V formation walking they were doing at Summerslam, surprised no-one else commented on it. LotjTNA may start up again about how half of the Nexus will be future endeavoured etc but so what? Take Darren Young for example, he was heartily trashed in almost every NXT thread but he got a couple of month run on RAW mixing with the big guys and got to be part of the main event of Summerslam. If he had realistic goals going into his WWE career that guy has just lived his dream and done a good job of work, pun possibly intended.

Risking CRZ's wrath, I would have had it go the same way right up until the final 2 on 1 and then have him look around, see that the so called rookies had thrashed the rest of the "cream of WWE" and had him shake Wade's hand and make the building explode by putting on a Nexus T-Shirt. Still, even as it is, if Barrett does indeed have a cleaning house session and sets the ball rolling with a streamlined Nexus 2.0 lineup, there are still interesting possibilities ahead.

As for the rest of the card, well, umm, ouch... SES should trim down to just Punk/Serena and have him go back to just trying to kick arse again. Kane/Undertaker was disappointing. I did enjoy the Miz's promo though, he had the crowd eating out of his hand for a lot of it.
