Since I don't watch Smackdown, last night was the first time I saw Barrett with his new group, and my reaction was quite MEH. I wanted Barrett to get in Cena's face, screw up the match, call out Nexus, something. Instead, he just barks about a rematch clause.
Last year, the buzz was Barrett vs Undertaker at Mania. He was a powerhouse with Nexus causing the great John Cena to be his lapdog for a brief period of time. Barrett was a badass on the mic and dominate in his group. Then the writers decided to defang him and get him kicked out of Nexus.
Now we have two small piss poor factions that have zero impact on the shows. New Nexus continued to look pathetic tonight. CM Punk gets his ass stomped by Randy Orton and the new Nexus run out to help. Then they back up as if Orton was protected by an invisible wall. I'm just baffled why Barrett was pushed so hard and then practically forgotten. The rumor is Nexus vs Corre at Mania so maybe creative is going to shake things up soon.
