• Former WWE Wrestler Believes John Cena Was Responsible For Burying Nexus

While speaking on Pro Wrestling Junkies, IMPACT Wrestling star Heath Slater discussed his run as part of the Nexus in WWE.

As many people believe, John Cena “buried” the Nexus. Slater also shares the same opinion as them.

“I’ll tell you this much. I’ve had so many people ask me that over the years. Honestly, I’m not sure if it’s 100% fact, but I could comfortably say it’s a 95% fact.

The whole time we were there, we were going over. We were playing to win. Edge and Jericho basically came up with that whole match. They planned it all out and had where it was, how it should be, where I think the last one left was Wade. And then the next thing you know, 4 hours later, it was just not happening that way.

We were young. We didn’t know. Looking back at it now, if we would have took over SummerSlam and ran it to ‘Mania, and had some super group come and let them destroy us – they should have put it in jeopardy and really made people believe that we were a threat, and want to see some group come in and beat us. They just cut it off when we were almost to the peak of the mountain.”

He also names wrestlers he enjoys working with.

“There’s so many, to be honest. Even down in developmental, I loved working with Trent Baretta. When I’m tagging with Rhyno or whoever, The Usos were amazing to work. When I was doing singles, Apollo Crews was really fun to work. So was Kalisto, those guys.

Randy Orton was incredibly easy to work because he’s just so smooth in everything he does. John Cena was another one that was really easy to work. There’s so many different levels so to speak, and each one has great guys to work with.”
