Do you think he will be able to keep his top heel status when he's finally on his own without Nexus? You know what, sometimes i wonder when people say "he's only gaining heat because of Cena as his antagonist, let's see when he's on his own without Nexus to help him gain heat", well, that statement is true, but i think Barrett is Nexus, Nexus is nothing without Barrett, he's the one who carries the group, his presence as the leader and his mic work helps the group to get over big time. And yes Cena is his antagonist, so? Isn't that the point, to give Barrett and the group a big rub? And also without Barrett as the focal point of this storyline i doubt this Nexus storyline would work, he's done a great job on making sure the crowds hate him, he could just stand on the ramp and people will boo the hell out of him out of building. To me, this storyline only proves that Barrett is almost ready, he's given the material and he makes it work, i said 'almost' because he still needs more seasoning in the ring, but wrestlers can improve and i'm sure Barrett will. I doubt anyone else in Nexus would have done a better job in Barrett's shoes, so all in all i'm sure he's gonna do well when he's single competitor.
