The Nexus attacked Marella and Kozlov after the match and cleared the ring of them. Nexus celebrated in the ring, and we have an email from the General Manager. The GM reminds the audience that Nexus is banned from ringside for the next match, and if any of them interfere, Nexus will be suspended indefinitely. The GM then told Nexus that they should leave the arena immediately.
