I guess the title explains it all.

Wade Barrett - I guess it's safe to say that he'll be a main eventer once Nexus disbands, or he'll be an upper-midcarder at worst. He's proven so far that he's got all the tools needed to become star, he's done a wonderful job carrying the group which i gotta say is not really an easy task to do. His interaction with other main eventers like Cena and Orton is very believable as well, it's like he already belongs to the top-tier class. I know some might argue that it's due to his booking that tries to make him look as good as possible but it won't work if Barrett can't handle his responsibility well. I mean, just put someone else from Nexus on Barrett's shoes right now, i doubt any of them would do the job as superbly as Barrett. His wrestling needs some work, it seems he's struggling when he has to face not-so-superior-in-ring workers which could be his main problem down the road, but i just can expect him to step it up soon because before he goes solo i'm sure he'll face Orton and Cena quite frequently and it will tremendously help him to slowly find the chemistry with any of them (especially Orton) so he'll be fully ready when he's finally in the main event as a single star. The way he's been booked so far is quite smart, i gotta say he's the Nexus member who will have the most advantage once he goes solo because Cena has really given him a huge rub in this whole storyline, it's inevitable that he'll always meet a cheer of boos everytime he shows up due to his past actions in Nexus, kinda similar to how Sheamus got over partly due to putting Hunter out of action for months. So, i guess it's fair to say that he's getting closer to be one of the most successful products of youth movement.

David Otunga - It's kinda hard to predict what his fate is gonna be once this CeNexus saga is over, i know he's actually not ready yet to be on tv but on the other hand he's getting the most focus besides Barrett every week so far, and i'm not sure what WWE is actually planning for him. Obviously he needs to improve a ton wrestling-wise but he's fairly good at playing his role right now as the one with a big ego who tries to tackle Barrett's position as Nexus leader from behind, at least how he does it is believable, he's also doing a great job at showing the emotion of being harassed. So, my guess is, he will get built up as the one who gets harassed by Barrett every week to try to gain sympathy from the audience, and he will finally turn on Nexus on near future and helping Cena take them out for several weeks, but Nexus will somehow beat him up so bad that he has to take time-off (this is how i write him off from the show for a while to train further in developmental) and once he returns as a better wrestler he will be a babyface and possibly getting his "Daniel Bryan push" in the midcard, which i won't mind because sans his wrestling skill, he's got a good look and his mic work is pretty good, at least to me.

Heath Slater - Slater might not make it to the main event but i think he's good enough to become a solid midcarder. IMO, he's got an unique look, his wrestling skill and mic work are okay, but his selling ability is top notch, he kinda reminds me of Ziggler when it comes to selling. I think he will excel more as a tag-team wrestler, can't really explain why, but that's just the way i see it, maybe he should not team up with Justin Gabriel because i want Gabriel to have a single career, but he can team-up with Skip Sheffield whom i think will be a good partner for him.

Justin Gabriel - I'm a big fan of Gabriel. To me, he is the definition of all-around great worker, he's good looking, he's got a beautiful finisher, he can go in the ring, he's versatile, means that he can play face and heel role. His mic work has been quite hit and miss but he doesn't need to talk often to wow the audience, because his wrestling does the job fine enough (see: Daniel Bryan, Evan Bourne). I think he will go far judging from how he's been booked so far, he looks strong throughout the Nexus storyline, maybe he'll be an upper-midcarder once he goes solo but i don't see why he won't get beyond that because not only he's a great worker, his look is also marketable, WWE should capitalize on it.

Michael McGillicutty - Right now i can't really predict what his fate will be because i haven't seen how he'll get booked after joining Nexus, but based on his attributes alone, i can see him getting far, Hennig is a pretty good wrestler and he's got the presence as a single star, i personally think he's a fine mic-worker, yes he made 'mistake' in the past but that doesn't mean he won't try to get better now. Seeing as some members here who closely followed his FCW work said that he was downright awful on the mic but from what i saw on his NXT run, he's not that bad, i guess he's always trying to improve his craft so i don't see why he won't get better now if he has that attitude.

Husky Harris - Same with Hennig i can't really judge what his fate is gonna be. But i'm a fan, IMO, he's a great talent, he's still very young, he can move well despite his size, and he's a damn good mic worker, he's a natural heel and knows how to get the crowds hate him. I don't mind him being 'fat', but for his own good i think he needs to lose some weight if he wants to get far in WWE, at least he should get back to the shape when he was still on NXT, that was a more tolerable shape than the one he has now which is a bit gross to look at for most people. But yeah, he still has lots of time and room for improvement, he's already decent now and i'm sure he will only get better in the future. And seeing as a guy who does not have "WWE Look" like Daniel Bryan gets pushed consistently at the moment makes me stay optimistic that Harris has a really bright future.

John Cena - I'm not sure if he will turn heel or not, this is hard to predict, but Vince still doesn't have replacement for him yet if he wants to turn Cena heel, so my guess is he will still continue saving the day and pleasing the kiddies once Nexus storyline is over.


Now your turn.

Wade Barret: main eventer
David Otunga: SamckDown version of The Miz
Heath Slater: ocasional tag-team with Zack Ryder

Skip Sheffield: Percy Watson is better for the role, but, meanwhile, SmackDown's version of Santino.
Darren Young: can't see WWE using him much

Justin Gabriel: breathtaking matchs with Evan Bourne, Kaval, Tyson Kidd, generating tons of audience and elevationg the Cruiserweight championship to a relevance it doesn't have since... oh... wait... Darn you, WWE

...What? Skip Sheffield a comedy jobber? You're not serious.

Skip was one of the most impressive superstars in the summerslam 7vs7 match and plays a great brute heel. Look at the week where Wade wasn't there, Skip played the big bully role perfectly. Make his character more of a verbal asshole and you have a better 2010 Heel Batista.

I predict Nexus will get all the belts and titles first for all members then will be taken down one by one and disband.

Wade Barrett: Will be a main eventer for years to come imo.

Justin Gabriel: I think he'll stay in the mid-card for a while, possibly a couple of years and then he could potentially be moved up on a show like Smackdown, like Rey was. But I think he's someone who's going to have a bit of a wait on his hands if he ever wants to make it to the top.

Heath Slater: Honestly, I don't see him doing anything as a singles guy. Maybe forming a tag team and doing that for a couple of years.

David Otunga: Unless he improves, I don't see them trusting him with any major angles, or any major matches. I don't think he has the talent to make it far to be honest.

Michael McGuillicutty: Stupid name...he reminds me a bit of Ted Dibiase. They might treat him as a big deal at first, but I think the audience will find it hard to latch onto hi. He's just too bland. Bland name, bland look, bland in ring, boring on the mic etc. But knowing the WWE, they would push him to the main event at some point.

Husky Harris: I'm actually a big fan of Harris, but unfortunately I don't see him lasting. I see him taking the Mike Knox route. They might give him a push, but ultimately it won't work well and he'll be a monster jobber. It sucks though, because I like Harris a lot.

Darren Young: Hmmmmmm, I don't see him going anywhere.

WADE BARRETT - NXT Season 1 Winner. Future: main-eventer

The only member of the Nexus, and probably the only former rookie from NXT, that will becomem a main-eventer. He truly is a complete package. There's not alot to be said about Barrett that hasn't been said already, so I'm going to leave it at that.

DAVID OTUNGA - former WWE Tag Team Champion. Future: uncertain

Otunga is the Miz of Nexus - people don't like him right now because, like Miz in 2006, he's a former reality star that's green in the ring. But just like Miz by 2009, if he significantly improves, he might surprise us all. I can't really judge him because I haven't really seen him in a singles match since May, so I have no idea whether his ringwork has improved or not, but if it does, I can see him as a solid mid-carder.

JUSTIN GABRIEL - current WWE Tag Team Champion. Future: mid-carder

Justin Gabriel is kind of like a larger Evan Bourne, but without the whole smiles, shits n' giggles babyface BS, which is a good thing. I expect to see him as the next big high-flyer, and I'm sure that he'll definately win a couple of tag team and secondary championships by the end of his career.

HEATH SLATER - current WWE Tag Team Champion. Future: jobber

I'm sorry, but the more exposure this guy gets, the more I cringe at the sight of him. It's not that Slater can't wrestle, it's that everything about him is god-awful. From his hillbilly accent, to his ginger hair, to his goofy grin, to his retarded hair shaking, to his one-man-rockband persona. Edge should seriously consider spearing Slater in his crusade against all things stupid, because this guy has been defining the word since February.

JOHN CENA - Former everything. Future: heheh, yeah.

No comment.

THE REST

Darren Young is currently a jobber, and will remain so.
Skip Sheffeld and Michael Tarver, thanks to injury, will probably be released.
Michael McGillicutyy will become an even more un-successful version of Ted DiBiase Jr.
Husky Harris will choke on a Big Mac.

Wade Barrett – If he remains injury free he will undoubtedly enjoy a long, successful career. I can see him turning into a massively popular face a few years down the road.

David Otunga – Otunga will be the wrestler we wish would go away but he never will. I expect him to be irritating me for another 10 years or so. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him world champion someday. *shudder*

Husky Harris – Personally I like him but he’s destined to be used as a chubby stepping stone.

Daniel Bryan – He’s one of the hottest stars on the roster right now and his matches are always a pleasure to watch. If he builds some muscle mass he could be a world champion.
Justin Gabriel – He’ll have multiple IC & tag titles. If he can prove himself on the mic then the sky’s the limit.

All the rest will be long forgotten background characters.

Wade Barrett - He's already a great heel and has good look. He's very comfortable both in the ring & on the mic and continues to improve each and every week. Barrett for sure has a future as a upper mid-carder/main event talent.

Justin Gabriel - He plays a very good babyface in peril, he is very flashy in the ring similar to John Morrison. There's certainly a future for the guy but i can only see him as a mid-card babyface at best.

Heath Slater - Not sure where Slater will end up but i certainly think there is a spot for him on the roster. He was pretty much awful on NXT but has slowly started to improve.

David Otunga - He has a lot of charisma and is very good on the mic but is clearly not ready yet, the WWE doesn't even have the confidence in him to work tag team matches. If he massively improves in the ring i can certainly see him going places in the future.

Husky Harris - Well he certainly has a unique look, from what i saw on NXT season 2 he's pretty decent in the ring also. There's certainly a spot open for a guy with his look and character but i'm not to sure how far will go.

Michael McGillicutty - He's just rather bland IMO, he looked okay in the ring but certainly not good in the ring yet and some of his promos during NXT were dreadful. I think out of all the guys in Nexus, his future is most unclear.

McGillicutty : Randy Ortons career , all over again

Husky Harris : Top midcard heel , will probably eventually work his way into a few main event matches and win a world title at least once in his career

Cena : Biggest heel in the world?

Edit : Gonna do the guys who were in Nexus but booted out too

Skip Sheffield : Monster upper mid/main eventer like Kane/Big show are

Michael Tarver : Midcard for a year or two , then probably released where he will main event in TNA

Wade Barret
- Main Event. Has a great future after Nexus. Excellent mic skills, great ring skills and psychology, and has a great look. He was right to win NXT over Bryan and everyone else. Predict "Aristocratic Assassin" Wade Barret.

Justin Gabriel
- Has a way better look than Evan Bourne, whom he is always compared to. The Intercontinental Championship is where he's heading. Solid Mid-carder with an ability to reach main event status every once in a while, and maybe even contend for the top titles. Okay mic skills, talented ring skills. I'm not sure about his in-ring psychology yet, and he still gives the impression of being a spot monkey.

Michael Tarver
- Mid-carder. People overrate this guy due to his incredible mic skills without realizing his current mic style DOES NOT match his gimmick. A man who claims he can knock you out, but his style of speaking suddenly makes me forget he's a hard-hitting striker. He needs more attitude in his promos, but I think it's because of the Nexus thing. Can claim a mid-card title.

Heath Slater
- Underrated talent due to his look. Should have never cut his hair and changed to trunks. The guy is an excellent heel, and I think if he had a title like the US Championship, he'd make the title run exciting. Sells like a champ and great in-ring skills. His promos are good. IWC hates him for stupid reasons.

David Otunga
- No matter how much we hate it, this guy is gonna get to the top. He doesn't look like a mid-carder, he looks like a main eventer. He wrestles like a moron, though. But that's something that can be fixed, and Otunga does have okay mic skills. If he trains like The Miz, he can definitely reach main event.

Skip Sheffield
- Insane personality and a downright monster. I hate how he's roided up, imho. But goddamn did he look strong in his Nexus run. Can definitely be in the mid-card and snag a US Title and an IC title, too. Great mic skills but botches words sometimes at the worst moments, lol.

Darren Young
- They're working him from the ground up. Great wrestling skills, but will probably only get tag titles. He has a great chance if he faces CM Punk again if Punk remains heel due to the history, and they had great chemistry. He's a walking mystery right now; a real like missing link.

Michael McGillicutty
- Terrible mic skills, and honestly is way too generic. His father's shadow is literally above him and that's sad. His look is... eh... Tag titles is probably his best bet. Can be a face and heel, but more face-ish.

Husky Harris
- Fat as hell, but he makes it work. Good mic skills, definite heel. Can get a mid-card title if he puts effort and loses just a few pounds to slim himself down.
