Considering what happened at this PPV, Nexus needed this. For a force that claims to be so destructive and dominant, they have achieved very little beyond losing big match situations and major opportunities. It didn't matter which two members won as long as Nexus had some gold.
Rhodes and DiBiase claim that despite being the tag champs only a month, they are the most dominant team in the WWE. Well Cody, I think that's a sign of how bad WWE's tag division truly is rather than the skill of your team. The Raw GM piped in and mentioned there is a certain team they have not faced yet. Out comes Barrett, who announced they will defend their titles against David Otunga and John Cena.
Otunga started off the match, but Cena would do most of the work after he was tagged in. He practically won the belts on his own. There was a little friction between Otunga and Cena, but in the end Rhodes was placed in a STF and tapped out.
After the match Cena hit Otunga with an AA and left with both belts. Considering today's tag team division, this is actually a wise move. Nexus are a faction so to have the tag team championship is a natural step. It's an improvement over the makeshift team of Rhodes and McIntyre.
It also gives Cena something to do outside of being Barrett's lackey, while also allowing Nexus onto Smackdown. I predict that the Freebird rule is going to come into effect, meaning all members of the Nexus can defend the tag team championship.
