Hello Bleacher Fanatics.
I have been here, lurking mostly, and reading all your articles for almost a year now. I thought it was a good time to add my input finally.
FIRST TOPIC: NEXUS
I'm gonna start with what was the greatest thing in the WWE the last couple months. Nexus. I ask you to name me one other time in WWE history where seven newcomers became Summerslam Headliners in less than a year.
....still waiting. No one raised their hand and answered? Well, you are all correct. It has NEVER happened. Since SS though, the Nexus has basically become a joke. Granted the gained some steam back when they destroyed former member John Cena...sorry I mean Darren Young. Everyone is already talking about the break up of Nexus., and I have a question for you all. Why? Why do they need to break up after only a few months. Besides Wade Barrett no one looks like WWE singles material to me. Lets run down this list
Tarver- The guy's moveset is punching, and his finisher is a big punch. Cool?
Gabriel- Some will disagree with me but he definitely isn't ready. Granted his match with Orton was decent, but he isn't ready to be taken seriously for singles matches yet.
Skippy- I love this guy. I agree with everyone when they say he could be a greater Batista. But he needs more build up to be a single star. Think about how Batista left Evolution and then people believed right away he was a serious competitor. Besides NXT and the one match he had to stay in Nexus, what other matches has Sheffield had when he was alone? When he gets back from injury, build him up as a monster heel then have him be a babyface, either way...this guy is gonna be something.
Slater- Ok, so he is the one man rock band. He styled his look after Edge. His finisher looks the same as when Ziggler botches his. Ehhh...not sold on him at all
Otunga- I don't care what people say. I like him. Yes his in ring ability is....lets just say that I could do better and all I have is a makeshift ring in my backyard. But his mic skills are great and we need more mic people in this business. Someone wrote once that he should get his own stable afterwards to keep him from wrestling but get him on the mic, and another said have Barrett put him 2nd in command. I agree with both these ideas. But don't put him on his own yet.
Barrett- Give the guy the title already and give Nexus some credibility. His hard work recently deserves recognition.
NEXT TOPIC: THE BLEACHER REPORTERS ON THE WRESTLING BOARD
This is where I acknowledge those before me and got me thinking about writing.
When I first came here I remember Chris Mueller and Joe Burgett ruled this site. I read every single on of their articles because of how great they were. They let their articles do the talking for them. I respected them. A few others in my time here have caught my eye, and these are just random people I remember. (If I get your names wrong, I'm sorry) RKO's #1Fan Forever? A.M? Matt Hester? John CobCorn?
