The coronavirus pandemic forced WWE to come up with a lot of changes in the schedule and that includes the group known as Nexus. They have massive plans for WrestleMania and the post-Mania season, those had to be canceled. One of those nixed plans is the comeback of the Nexus group that was apparently set to happen at WrestleMania 36.
A new interview has revealed that the COVID-19 crisis forced WWE to nix a huge angle that would have involved the Nexus faction who once took over the WWE scene with number-games being in their favor. Apparently, WWE could have had a similar kind of planning with the strong heel faction starting from the show of shows. But the COVID-19 outbreak didn’t let that happen.
Former WWE star Darren Young recently appeared in an interview with the VP Show where he revealed that an interesting angle featuring The Nexus was planned for WrestleMania 36 that was initially scheduled to take place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida. But the show was moved from the giant stadium into the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and as a result, several changes were made to the show.
The former Nexus member claimed that the group was set to make its return during this year’s edition of the Showcase of Immortals. Interestingly, he didn’t want to give full details on the reunion,
“If Nexus would’ve come back… and who knows what would’ve happened, but we were scheduled to come back for WrestleMania. Yeah, this year’s WrestleMania in Tampa.”
The Nexus debuted on WWE television in June 2010. It originally consisted of eight rookies from the first season of NXT those are Wade Barrett, David Otunga, Michael Tarver, Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel, Darren Young, Ryback, and Daniel Bryan.
Bryan left out the group as he was on a mission of his own to become a singles superstar on the roster. But the rest of the Nexus group was on a mission to take over the company who went on to attack everyone standing in their path. Initially, Barrett was the leader of the group but later CM Punk took charge by regrouping the faction.
Previously, reports were out suggesting that WWE planned a big angle that could have unfolded over the weeks in spring and summer but the company canceled it due to the coronavirus. Following this revelation, the big question is whether it the Nexus reunion angle, that was canceled. Another bug question is whether the officials still consider to execute it somewhere in the future.
