Raw Results 10/25/10

Raw Results from Green Bay, WI:

Wade Barrett and The Nexus arrived to the ring leading his crew. Cena trailed them. Both Otunga and Cena carried their tag team belts with them. Barrett introduced the most dominant group in the history of WWE, The Nexus. He introduced Otunga, Slater, Gabriel and then motioned for Cena to stand with them. Barrett introduced Cena and he did the "You can't see me" hand wave in his face.

Barrett had slideshow still images shown of Nexus beating up Undertaker to help bury him at the PPV last night. Barrett explained why Nexus helped Kane saying "we had our reasons" but told the fans it's none of their business. Barrett ordered Cena to tell the fans what happened later in the match against Orton. Cena said Orton was about to beat down Barrett so he got him DQ'd and Barrett won the match. Barrett gave his side of the story, saying Cena layed his hands on him, delivering the AA. Barrett said after that, Cena had the audacity to hand the belt over to Orton. Cena told him he said if he won the match then Cena wouldn't be fired.

The email sound went off as the lights blinked. Cole got up to read the latest email from the GM. The GM said Barrett is entitled to a future rematch against Orton, but there must be a special referee to maintain order. The GM said the winner of tonight's main event gets to choose the ref. The GM said any member of Nexus will face Orton. Barrett said that's an easy choice, Cena will face Orton.

Otunga chimed in on a mic saying that he and Cena won the tag titles last night, but Cena clearly wasn't on the same page. Otunga suggested that Cena should be fired for what he did to him last night. Barrett said it's clear they can't co-exist as tag champs, so he ordered a tag team title match with John Cena and David Otunga facing Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater.

The bell sounded to make it official with Cena ready to go in the ring. Barrett got back on the mic saying Nexus doesn't fight each other, so someone needs to do the right thing. Barrett said someone needs to lie down in the ring for a pin, and that someone is David Otunga. Otunga was clearly pissed about the order, but Barrett stared him down. Otunga tagged in and got in the ring reluctantly against Heath Slater. Cena was shown on the apron saying "Don't do it." Otunga got down to one knee then layed dowon for Slater to take the pinfall. Slater and Gabriel became the new tag team champions.

Otunga just shook his head as he stood in the corner. Cena left the ring also upset and walked backstage as the new champs celebrated the win.

Vickie Guerrero arrived out on stage with her rookie diva Kaitlyn. Vickie said there was an error last night in officiating which cost Smackdown's Dolph Ziggler the match against Daniel Bryan.

Miz said he knows why Eve's out there but she doesn't have to apologize on behalf of the divas. Miz said it's not her fault she has bad taste in men and hair extensions that don't match. Eve told Miz he's a frog-faced loser and the farthest thing from Awesome the WWE's ever seen. Riley interrupted Eve telling her to shut the front door, because Miz could have beat anyone on that roster. Riley told Eve to head backstage and see if anyone from Team Raw wants a piece of the captain. Eve started to leave the ring when R-Truth's theme song hit and Truth came out performing it.
