The Nexus Were Reportedly Set To Return At WrestleMania 36

The plans were changed due to coronavirus

The coronavirus outbreak forced WWE to change a lot of their plans for WrestleMania 36 and a new interview reveals that the COVID-19 crisis forced them to nix a huge angle for the show involving the Nexus.

Former WWE star Darren Young recently had an interview with the VP Show where he revealed an interesting angle that was planned for the show.

The former Nexus member claimed that the group was set to make its return during this year’s edition of the Show Of Shows but the plans were canceled:

“If Nexus would’ve come back… and who knows what would’ve happened, but we were scheduled to come back for WrestleMania. Yeah, this year’s WrestleMania in Tampa.”

The Nexus debuted on WWE television in June 2010. It originally consisted of eight rookies from the first season of NXT, including current stars such as Daniel Bryan and Heath Slater.

There have been reports that WWE had planned a big angle that would have unfolded over the weeks in spring and summer which the promotion canceled due to the coronavirus.

Now after this revelation, the big question is if the Nexus reunion was the angle the company had planned and if the officials could still execute it somewhere down the line.
