RAW Opener:

Nexus is out to open the show and they march right to the ring and Wade Barrett has a microphone. He says what doesn’t kill us, will only make us stronger, and Team WWE barely won, because Nexus managed to beat six of the best RAW has. Barrett says everyone was so many people were concerned with Nexus winning, that they didn’t think of what would happen if they lost. He says their will be more pain, suffering and misery for anyone who gets in their way, and from now on… he gets cut off by John Cena.

Cena is laughing at the top of the stage and he says he is impressed, because Barrett talks such a big game, but he is as tough as Snooki from the Jersey Shore. He says it’s because Barrett tapped out that Nexus lost, and that they should be kicking themselves for getting rid of Daniel Bryan. Nexus can be beaten, and Cena says Barrett should pay attention, because he says he will look at them as individuals. Cena mocks each one of them about their looks (says Slater looks like the Wendy’s girl, and Young looks like Cena’s mom had a lusty affair with Buckwheat, among other comments, this is probably the funniest Cena has been in a long time.) and then gets back to Barrett and says they lost, and Darren Young should be called The Weakest Link since he tapped out in under a minute. 

Michael Cole interrupts with a GM email and it says Nexus’ strength will be tested when each member will face a Team RAW member, and outside interference will be met with swift consequences. Barrett says it’s not a punishment, it’s a way to examine Nexus, and see if there really is a weak link in the group. Barrett says if any of them lose, they will be kicked out of the group, and Otunga says that is fine, but reminds him it could happen to himself as well.

Cole interrupts with another email, and it says one last thing, Nexus can choose which RAW members they face, except Barrett. Barrett will go one on one with his mentor Chris Jericho, and that match will be up next.
