We are live on tape from Manchester, United Kingdom and your announcers are Michael ‘The New King of WWE’ Cole and Josh ‘The Prince of NXT’ Mathews.
John Cena is in the ring and he is behind a Nexus podium in his alternate Nexus gear. He has a proclamation to read and the Town Crier begins. It is his distinct honor to introduce everyone the man who promised the winds of change and has delivered. He is the leader of the most dominant and revolution force to set foot in a WWE ring, Nexus. In two weeks, he will be your WWE Champion. Welcome your hero who is making his triumphant return to Manchester, England . . . Wade Barrett.
Wade comes to the ring and the rest of Nexus follows behind at a distance.
Wade thanks John for the outstanding introduction. He says that he couldn’t have said it better himself, but he did write it for John. Wade says that the prodigal son has returned. What better way to celebrate his upcoming championship reign than to have a preview of the championship celebration tonight. He says that there is going to be a big party and everyone is invited. Before Nexus hoist him victoriously on his shoulders and get ahead of ourselves, Wade says that there is some business to get finished.
Wade says that there are a couple of issues that happened last week that need to be dealt with. We go to the footage from Smackdown when David Otunga brought much shame to Nexus by getting pinned in the ten man tag match. Wade tells David to step forward. He tells David that the next time he undermines his authority as leader of Nexus and take them to Smackdown without his permission, make sure that you are successful. Wade tells David to get back in line and he will deal with him later. Wade says that he wants to deal with John Cena. Last week, John had the opportunity to showcase on Raw what he is going to do at Survivor Series in the match between Wade Barrett and Randy Orton. We go to footage of Cena not allowing a tag from last week’s tag match leading to the loss by Nexus.
Wade wants John to explain himself. John says it started as a joke when he rapped on a Thanksgiving episode of Smackdown and then he started wearing his hat backwards and saying that he was invisible. Wade wants John to explain what happened last week. John says that they lost. Wade says that he isn’t going to let anyone ruin his homecoming. In two weeks, John Cena is either free of the Nexus or he is fired. Either he raises Wade’s hand and gives him the WWE Title, or he flushes Cena’s career down the toilet.
Cena says that he is glad that Barrett is home. Cena reminds Wade that freed or fired, he will give Wade and anyone else who wants to get involved the beating of a lifetime.
Wade tells Cena that he holds Cena’s destiny in his hands so he will do exactly what he tells Cena at Survivor Series. Wade says that he wants to rehearse what he will say after Survivor Series. He wants Cena to tell the world that Wade is the WWE Champion. Cena points out that Wade hasn’t won anything.
Before Cena can play pretend, Randy Orton slithers out onto the stage.
Randy says that the last time he checked, he was still WWE Champion. He tells Wade that he has John Cena under his thumb, but Cena isn’t fighting him for the title. Randy says that he can beat Wade regardless of who the referee is. Randy says that he doesn’t care about what happens to Cena in two weeks, all he cares is that Wade Barrett never gets the title.
Wade tells Orton that he had an army of men behind him at his beck and call, but Orton doesn’t have anyone.
The General Buzzkill has made the trip over the pond and Michael Cole climbs Mount Why Am I Here. He quotes, Wade Barrett’s championship celebration preview has officially been cancelled. To ensure that there is a decisive victor, the match must be won by pinfall or submission only. The remaining members of Nexus will be banned from ringside. That is at Survivor Series, but tonight since Wade Barrett has an army behind him, Randy Orton will have one tonight as well. Team Barrett will face Team Orton in a ten man tag match. The General Buzzkill will be choosing the team later tonight and the referee will be John Cena.
Cena knocks over the Whole N’ing Podium and then he pushes David Otunga down . . . ONCE.
