Many crazy things have happened over the years in the WWE, and cramming them into a list of 10 is very difficult, but I have compiled a list of moments which i believe had the ‘shock factor’ or what many people call the ‘Holy Sh*t!’ factor. I have tried to vary these moments, so that we have different ones from different eras, because who really wants 10 different Attitude Era moments? And we kick it off with…
10. Nexus Debut
On the 6th June 2010 7 relatively unknown names shocked the world of professional wrestling to its very core. The winner of NXT season 1, Wade Barrett showed up on the stage during the John Cena Vs CM Punk main event, much to everybody’s surprise. Then suddenly the rest of the NXT rookies appeared around ringside. All of a sudden they charged the ring and laid waste to everybody in site.
They tore up the ringside area, gave John Cena the worst beat down of his career and even choked out Justin Roberts with his own tie, something that would later see Daniel Bryan get fired (and then rehired) for. It is safe to say that in a time where the WWE was getting very boring and losing stars such as Shawn Michaels and Batista, the Nexus invasion shocked everybody and gave them a reason to watch again.
