Nexus Invasion: Michael Tarver’s Missed WWE Opportunity

In 2010, the Nexus shocked WWE by invading RAW and assaulting John Cena. Michael Tarver, a former Nexus member, recently reminisced about missed opportunities within the company. Tarver, part of the original Nexus with notable names like Daniel Bryan and Wade Barrett, was released from WWE in 2011 after a groin injury halted his Nexus journey.

Tarver revealed in an interview that Vince McMahon, former WWE Chairman, envisioned him returning as a manager. McMahon invested time in refining Tarver’s promo skills, hinting at significant plans for him. Despite brief appearances on WWE programming post-Nexus, Tarver never transitioned into a prominent managerial role.

Although Tarver initially preferred wrestling over managing, he was enthusiastic about the chance to display his abilities. Reflecting on what could have been, Tarver believed he had the potential to excel as one of WWE’s top talkers if the managerial opportunity had come to fruition. Despite his dedication within The Nexus, Tarver expressed disappointment as the anticipated plans faded away unexpectedly.

Tarver’s final televised main roster match occurred in 2010 on RAW, teaming up with John Cena in a losing effort against Evan Bourne and Mark Henry. Speculation arises on how WWE should have booked Michael Tarver post-Nexus.
