Raw Results 10/4/10

Raw Results from Wichita, KS:

Wade barrett and The Nexus arrived to the ring to start off the show. Barrett spoke about how they're still standing before everyone in the ring, meaning he won last night. He said before they introduce the newest Nexus member, first he wants to address last night. Barrett identified the two guys who attacked Cena as Husky Harris and Michael McGillicutty of NXT Season 2. He said they are not part of The Nexus, and then he chastised Otunga and the others for coming to the ring during last night's match.

Barrett asked everyone to give a warm welcome to John Cena. Cena looked absolutely devestated as he slowly walked to the ring. Cena got into the ring with Nexus. Barrett said he knows this must be killing Cena, but he knows Cena's a man of his word. WB said in time Cena will realize this is the best thing ever to happen to him.

Michael Tarver stepped up and yelled at Cena for putting his hands on him and threatening his livelihood. Tarver presented a special wristband to Cena, who yanked it out of Tarver's hands. Cena stared at it and removed one of his Cenation bands off his arm as the crowd cheered for him. He looked around at all the fans, contemplating it, then put it on his left arm.

Slater spoke next saying the transition is going to be tough, but that's ok because The Nexus is there for him. Slater said everyone wants to know Cena's thoughts on this, but instead they have an official statement for him to read. Cena tried to argue about that, but Barrett said this is non-negotiable. Cena yanked a mic out of Slater's hands to read:

"I, John Cena, hereby acknowledge that I'm officially a member of The Nexus. Any enemy of the Nexus is now an enemy of mine."

Barrett said tonight Cena will help teach two enemies of Nexus a lesson: Evan Bourne and Mark Henry. Barrett said he'll even let Cena choose his tag partner for tonight. Cena smirked then walked over and got right in Tarver's face, choosing him. Barrett ok'd it, then called Bourne and Henry to come out right now for their beating.

Evan Bourne & Mark Henry vs. John Cena & Michael Tarver

Cena got in and offered Bourne a handshake. Bourne looked around then obliged. Tarver yelled at Cena for being friendly, so Cena slapped Tarver and told him to show him the Nexus way. Tarver came in to beat up Bourne.

After a commercial break, Henry and Bourne gained control of Tarver. Cena stuck his hand out for a tag while Tarver was way over in the other corner. Cena kept teasing a tag as Tarver was getting beat up by Bourne.

He said he's going to prove tonight you can be Nexus and against us. he clocked Tarver with the microphone then beat him up on the outside. Cena tore apart the steel steps and ultimately slammed Tarver down on them. The fans chanted "One more time" and Cena obliged with another slam on the steps, before tossing Tarver into the ring for the STF to punish him even more. For some reason the rest of the Nexus were nowhere to be found.

Just then the lights flashed and the email chime sounded. Cena released the hold on Tarver as Cole got ready to read. The GM's message reiterated the stipulation for Cena's HIAC match, that if he lost he must join Nexus.
