Nexus: WWE Focuses Too Much On Wade Barrett and CM Punk

Jack WindhamAnalyst IJanuary 9, 2011

Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, David Otunga, Michael McGillicutty and Husky Harris.

That list is there just in case you've already forgotten who the other members of Nexus are. It would be hard to blame you since these guys rarely get any of the spotlight.

The purpose of a stable is to give the leading figure something new to work with and to give the supporting cast an opportunity to be elevated.

If a stable can produce future champions like Randy Orton and Batista, then it's a success. If a stable produces just one star, then it failed miserably.

Nexus is looking to head down the path of failure.

Gabriel, Slater, Otunga, McGillicutty and Harris are given television time on a weekly basis. However, that television time doesn't mean as much if they're being treated with the same amount of importance as the ring announcers and timekeepers.

Right now, these guys are just used as background props with the occasional speaking parts.

Nexus has been given tag team championship reigns, but they are hardly worth mentioning because they weren't given much to do with those belts. They've also been given minimal parts in segments, but nothing memorable.

Management doesn't even bother giving them their own feuds to work with.

The focus has always been on Wade Barrett. Now, it's going to be on CM Punk.

You're either Nexus, or...you're noticed.
