Again, shocking isn't always a good thing.
You can be shocked at how a company can make such a stupid decision and cost themselves a lot of money. This was one of those moments.
In 2010, The Nexus was on a tear in WWE.
Debuting in early June, the group was the top storyline in the company, and was taking the main event spot at SummerSlam.
It was an exciting time. After years of the company dragging their feet, we finally had some new guys in big roles.
To try to fend them off, John Cena assembled a team of seven guys to take on the seven members of Nexus in an elimination style tag match.
This short into the group's run, it looked like a sure thing that The Nexus was headed for victory. The WWE side already had a built in excuse for losing because their team couldn't get along.
This would then set up months more of Nexus terrorizing the roster, until the babyfaces finally banded together and defeated them.
That must have made too much sense.
Instead, The Nexus lost their match at SummerSlam even when they had John Cena all by himself against Wade Barrett and Justin Gabriel.
Near the end of the match, Barrett laid out Cena with a DDT on the concrete floor.
It looked like it was over.
Super Cena then Hulked up and pinned the last two members in quick succession. It was like he hadn't been fighting the past 35 minutes and just had his face forcefully planted on concrete.
WWE sent the crowd home happy that night, but The Nexus never fully recovered.
It was a shocking and disappointing end to SummerSlam, and the beginning of the end of the promising young group.
