Ryback: John Cena Killed The Nexus

Former WWE Superstar Ryback continues to air out dirty laundry with his former employers, and this time around on a new episode of his Conversation With The Big Guy podcast, he dished on company big man John Cena and his experience with the leader of the Cenation during his run with the Nexus:

On the Nexus:

“None of us know what’s going to happen with our careers, but we know we’re going to be a faction called The Nexus. And for a lot of the WWE Universe, a lot of fans, they loved it. It was a great faction and it was underutilized.”

“[Wade Barrett] was the mental leader. I was the physical leader. I always kind of put it as that. Like, and I felt like that came across very well with the dynamic of the group that we had. And I felt like people got that. I felt like we both played our roles perfectly in that and that’s why, a big part of why that all worked, along with everybody else that added their [contributions]. [Justin] Gabriel was the highflier and Gabriel was a huge part of it too, I feel and everybody was. Everybody had their role.”

On John Cena ending it:

“It was not used properly mainly because of John Cena. f–king marks, that’s your headline for the f–king week. And it’s a fact across the board. Everybody knows it and he did not want that to go any further than what it was going to go passed because it was working, because it was eight guys getting over naturally. That’s why. God forbid guys get over naturally.”

    In other news water is wet and dust is dry. Nice news-flash.

    Barrett was the leader, he was the one that was supposed to be the big star. Looking back it’s such a shame that Bryan will be the only one to really be remembered to do anything special that came from this group and he wasn’t even in there for all but a day. Barrett should have been a world champion within a year from the Nexus’ debut, besides the unfortunate timing of his injuries, WWE failed him as well as the majority of the group.

    He wasn’t the leader of anything. He broke his ankle pretty early in the run and was quickly forgotten about.

    Yes we all know that Cena killed The Nexus, and its been one of the most disliked things he and WWE have done, but what does he mean “He was the physical leader”? Just because he was the big guy of the group, does not make him any kind of leader, physical or otherwise.
