The Nexus or The New Nexus (or simply Nexus) is a professional wrestling stable in the professional wrestling promotion, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), that is currently competing on its Raw brand. The group originally consisted of all eight rookies of NXT Season 1 and have shifted their roster several times since. Their initial goal was to obtain WWE contracts for all members, save for original Nexus leader Wade Barrett, who was already guaranteed a contract for winning NXT Season 1. The group have since gone on to antagonize the Raw roster, with John Cena as their main focus, who forcibly became a member of Nexus via a match stipulation at Hell in a Cell. Cena eventually exited the group by being fired at Survivor Series but was since rehired by Barrett. The group has gone on to win the WWE Tag Team Championships twice.
At the beginning of 2011, Wade Barrett was exiled from the group by CM Punk, who became the group's new leader. The focus of the group has since changed under Punk's leadership, becoming a tight-knit group dedicated to one another by faith. Currently, David Otunga is the only original active member of the Nexus, the other member being Skip Sheffield who is currently injured.
