Sheffield returns to WWE rings in a WWE Universe long since past The Nexus, or The Corre for that matter. And he went on the DL before my calling him "The Tank of the Nexus" ever had a chance to catch on somehow, perhaps as a trending topic on Twitter.
Was there some kinda copyright problem with The Nexus or something? Seriously! You can't put people in a Nexus T-shirt, or use the Nexus's theme song or TitanTron, in WWE '12. Nor do they mention The Nexus except via allusions on WWE programming.

Eh... throw him in Vickie's stable as her new Hercules-type muscle dude. With Ziggles potentially flirting with the main event scene, it's probably only a matter of time before he goes it alone, so Team Guerrero might be needing some fresh blood.
Right off the break put him in the ring with Show or Henry, make him look somewhat credible, but doing the job. Team him up with Ezekiel Jackson (who is also not busy at the moment) so we get a solid power tag team in the WWE, who as we remember, is trying to refresh it's tag team division.

Hmm. Wade Barrett is re-establishing himself in a big way via the Barrett Barrage, Dee-Bryan is showing some newfound aggression, David Otunga has a high-profile role as legal council to John Laurinaitis, the Capetown Werewolf is toiling in obscurity, Heath Slater and Darren Young have both recently come back from suspensions, and now Skip Sheffield has returned from injury. New New Nexus anyone?!
