-Cole and King welcome us to the show.
-The music for NEXUS hits, and they make their way to the ring with Cena pulling up the rear. Cena stand sin the corner as the other urge him to stand with them in formation. Barrett thanks the crowd, and then says SIMMAH DANN NAHH, so that he can introduce the most dominant group in WWE history, NEXUS. Barrett, Otunga, Slater, Gabriel and John Cena. Cena does his little you can't see me gesture, and Barrett says they did the unthinkable, as they helped bury the Undertaker. We see stills from the show. Barrett says most wonder why they got involved, and he says it is none of their business, but they had their reasons. Later that night he defeated Randy Orton, and then tells Cena to explain what happened. Cena says Barrett was about to get beat down by Orton, so he got Randy DQ'd so Barrett could win the match. Barrett says what actually happened was that he was on his way to winning and getting the title, and Cena got in the ring and laid his hands on him. We see a still from the PPV. After that, Cena had the audacity to hand Orton the title. Cena said he was told if Barrett didn't win the match he was fired, he won, great. Barrett say everything is gravy then, and the GM chimes in. Cole heads to the stand as the crowd hates the GM stuff, AND HE QUOTES, since Barrett did win last night, he is entitled to a rematch. But to maintain order, there must be a special referee, to be chosen by the winner of tonight's Randy Orton vs. any member of NEXUS match. Crowd chants for Cena, and Barrett says that Cena will face Orton. Otunga wants the mic and says that there is unfinished business. He and Cena won the tag team titles, but Cena ignored him and hit him with an AA. He then says Cena was against him last night, and Cena has to pay for this and needs to be fired. Barrett says that they can't co-exist as a team, so they will have a tag title match, the champs vs. the challengers.
