It seemed like they just got beat up all the time
They were like the 2011 version of Mean Street Posse, except MSP will always be the better because of their attire and theme music :lmao

It's a huge shame because when they were re-imagined as the New Nexus, I thought they were going to be hot shit for the rest of the year.

You mean clips like these didn't convince you this was the most dominant, successful stable in history?


That looked like a cheap trashy version of some of the movies I have in my porn stash...wait what?

Punk & stables never worked well.

Punk also fails being a bayface. He couldnt do it in 2008, he cant do it in 2011.
But he is entertaining as a heel, i just think WWE should turn him heel asap and stick with it.

The Entire "Pipebomb" gimmick is meant for a heel, i dont know Why wwe is trying to make punk look like a babyface to the audience with this gimmick.

He has to eventually turn heel if not now. Some guys just arent meant to be babyfaces.

The only good bit of the whole thing was Punk threatening to jump off the titantron. The rest was either some strange gay fetish porn with leather straps and fat guys or Randy Orton punting them in the head.

of course they got beat up, they're heels in the WWE
Yeah but it seems like they never go over
Heel stables do have an edge to them or a virtual dominance

New Nexus duties are as follows:
Walk out to the ring heelishly
Look heelish while listening to Punk
Get beat up
Repeat

When Punk revealed himself as the new Nexus leader, it had so much potential. Instead of following it up with Punk masterminding several attacks on Cena, leading to Punk/Cena for the WWE Title, they had several shitty segments during which members had to prove themselves. They dominated the Rumble for a while until Cena cleaned the ring. That's it. For some reason they kept it going for a long time too. Made no sense for Punk to be wearing the Nexus shirt after his first epic worked shoot promo.

I dunno they were succesful at getting beaten on. It really did look like the WWE just wanted a group for Randy Orton to pound into the dirt leading up to the Punk match at Mania. I can't think of any moment where I thought they want these guys to be pushed. They pushed punk (once again) as a manipulator of men and he was ok but the rest of that group was going no where. Barret/Slater/Gabriel where the ones at the front of Nexus and they where gone everyone else was just fail.

Man, the stable had so much potential and new life into it. Punk should have been the diabolical, scheming heel that he is capable of being. He should have been a more vicious cult leader in New nexus that he wasn't in SES. Instead, it was just for something Punk to do since the WWE had nothing for him. Cena and Orton making them look like jabronis pretty much sealed their fate and continues Punk's floundering of the midcard until that shoot promo.

Punk is definitely not a Babyface right now. He just got over even though he acted like a bad guy (Same thing happened to Austin & Orton more recently).

About the New Nexus : I always thought this stable had a lot potential. Punk was a great leader (And I'll never forget some of his promos, including the one where he was standing on the Titantron), Gabriel & Slater worked pretty well as a Team, and Husky Harris could be really good, even though his name sucks.
