WWE NXT is where it all began for these 2 young superstars with a lot of potential. When you talk about potential you see yourself looking at the Nexus. The group that have put the Raw locker room in a state since the invasion at Raw Viewers choice night when John Cena (Main victim of the Nexus) took on CM Punk in a match that would be remembered for all the wrong reasons. The wrong reasons were the Nexus. These 6 superstars: Wade Barrett (Leader), Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, David Otunga, Skip Sheffield and Michael Tarver. Now at Night of Champions Wade Barrett was involved in the 6 Pack Challenge that would probably crown a new Champion. But a new champion was not Barrett as he was eliminated by John Cena after being locked in the STF. Barrett was raged but seemed to understand that he was punching above his weight too much. He said, " I realise that I have been punching above my weight a bit as of late and leaving Nexus as backup but there is a superstar who is really punching above his weight. A superstar that I left in a heap back in NXT. That man is now the United States Champion, Daniel Bryan!" Immediately Bryan came out looking at the 6 heels smiling. " Wade you do know all you had to do is ask. Ask me nicely if I would put my title on the line against you." Barrett looked perplexed. " Well if you really think that's what I want well then fine. I will challenge you... " No Barrett ask nicely don't challenge me" said Bryan comically. " Don't try any funny stuff on me because I know that you know that you can't beat me and at Hell in a Cell I will prove that!" Who will be the U.S Champion? The British Bear Knuckle fighter or the American Dragon?
Daniel Bryan (c) vs Wade Barrett
Lights flicker and the GM has news. Michael Cole reads it out, " And I quote.. The general manager says, If Barrett and Bryan are to lock horns for a second time and reunite their differences that was once on NXT well than we have to even things out. You see Barrett has the Nexus in his back pocket. So Nexus, You are lumberjacks!" a large number of boos come over the arena and Nexus are shown backstage laughing. " However! Daniel Bryan was asked earlier to pick superstars he would like as lumberjacks aswell. So Bryan has picked 5 superstars to act as lumberjacks aswell. Let the games begin!" Cole gets down from the computer and into his seat.
Daniel Bryan comes out first with the U.S Title around his shoulder. He looks very confident and in shape to do battle. Justin Roberts reads out Bryan's picks.
* Ladies and Gentleman please welcome the first lumberjack of this match.... EVAN BOURNE!!! *
Evan Bourne comes racing out full ahead of steam and salutes the fans and is quick to show his appreciation to Daniel Bryan.
* The 2nd lumberjack is.... MARK HENRY!!! *
Mark Henry comes out with his usual taunting and nods at Bryan from ringside.
* The 3rd lumberjack is.... R-TRUTH!!! *
He comes out singing his new song and dancing around.
*The 4th and 5th are.... SANTINO MARELLA AND VLADIMIR KOZLOV *
Cole: These guys? I told you Bryan was crazy King.
Lawler: Hey don't put down Santino remember the deadly finisher of his. Cheer up Cole.
Cole: Well if he had any sense he'd just give back the title to the rightful owner, The Miz!
Next out are the Nexus who look at the other lumberjacks enticingly waiting for a fight.
Bryan says wait. He says sorry to Santino but he's not been picked he picked Kozlov though. He says meet my newest Lumberjack...
Darren Young comes out smiling and pointing at The Nexus.
Barrett then comes out and we see the match begin. Barrett has the upperhand and so does the Nexus in this title match. Nexus's Tarver is casually taunting at Mark Henry creating tension between the two. As the match continues we start to see Bryan's athletic ability show much to the dismay of a raging Michael Cole,
Cole: Look at him he actually thinks that hurt Barrett
Lawler: Well it certainly stunned him look.
Lawler was right it had stunned him and actually laid him out flat with the dropkick. Bryan climbed the turnbuckle and was ready to fly when he was pushed off by Slater who is then taken out by Truth and then a brawl really does begin on the outside. Henry is battling with Tarver and decimates him quite frankly. Gabriel and Darren Young lock horns, Sheffield stays quiet due to the injury and The brawl gets very hostile.
However whilst all this is happening in the ring Barrett has just hit Bryan with a spinebuster that has knocked some confidence out of Bryan. They both get to their feet and stare each other out. They lockup and Barrett just overpowers Bryan everytime. But then Bryan manages to kick Barrett right in the chest and the match gets tough. Both superstars part of the NXT show have a lot to show and they do so when Barrett is about to deliver the Wasteland but Bryan manages to somehow push Barrett down and lock in the Crossface which Barrett clampers around the ring trying to grab a rope. Finally Barrett manages to grab the ropes and manages to take a break from all the action. He gets up and is quickly suplexed by Bryan who is at full speed. He gets up and tries a camel clutch but Barrett manages to get free.
Barrett attempts to clothesline Bryan but fails and is once again put in the crossface in which he starts tapping to the delight of the WWE Universe.
DING DING DING
* Here is your winner and still the US Champion,....
Title shot to the back of Bryan's head by....
Grabs a mic....
MY NAME IS ALBERTO DEL RIO. BUT YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT!!!
Cole: Well what on earth is happening. The Intercontinental Champion just took out the U.S Champion what was that all about. Anyway Yes mistakenly in my opinion Daniel Bryan has retained the U,S Championship. But next is a match we have all been waiting for especially you King.
