Skip Sheffield Officially Dropped From The Nexus
The article states: "Immediately following that heinous first attack, the stalwart Bryan expressed remorse for his actions and parted ways with The Nexus, while Tarver, Sheffield and Young were later deemed unworthy of the rebels' signature armband either due to exile or injury. However, as witnessed by the WWE Universe, the group only grew stronger and more streamlined as a result of the changes within its ranks."
Sheffield injured his ankle in a tag team match with David Otunga against The Hart Dynasty at the Aug. 18 live event in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was later determined that he suffered a compound fracture of his ankle and was initially expected to be out for four to six months.
It should be noted that Sheffield was never officially ousted from the group on RAW. Wade Barrett acknowledged once that Sheffield suffered an ankle injury.
