#4 Cena topples the Nexus

Even the 16-time World Champion has said he regrets winning this huge main event.

The nWo. D-Generation X. The Shield. There's something special about stables.

And in June 2010, WWE introduced a new one, The Nexus: a group of NXT rookies who were ready to make a name for themselves at the expense of the RAW roster.

With nobody safe, the team of seven (originally eight) rookies went through everyone, from Evan Bourne to Bret 'Hitman' Hart, and eventually came up against John Cena.

Meeting in a seven on seven elimination match at Summerslam, the bout was supposed to be the coming out party for the group, showing they truly meant something.

Instead, the ending was changed, as Cena's team defeating the group convincingly.

Afterwards, The Nexus were never seen the same, and though Cena would be forced to join later, everyone knew their days were numbered.
