I don't understand those who are bashing the creative team for "ripping off" Nexus and the nWo when in pertains to The Shield. If anything, all they did was take the best elements from either group to create what I think is a fresh way to debut their top 3 prospects. For the most part, the nWo consisted of established names and the whole presmise was to take over and control the company. Nexus, while exciting at first was a group of their top 8 (or 10?) prospects at the time. Even if you ignore the fact Cena wrongfully burried the faction before they could make a real impact, I think the number of members might have hurt the concept since many were lost in the shuffle after said burrial. Sadly, their "Bigger Picture" was never revealed but it's safe to say their intensions were not to shield injustice but rather, make a name for themselves by gunning after the top guy.
