Prior to winning either the NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship or the WWE Tag Team Championship, Fred Rosser was a part of The Nexus.
“Recently, Rosser shared his thoughts on the matter on the “Insiders Edge Podcast,” saying, “It was a wonderful spot to be in, but individually I was dealing with demons.” I wasn’t happy with who I was, so when I was in a room with seven other men, everyone was very “I want this” and “I want that.” Since I’m quite laid back, I didn’t want to say anything that could be misconstrued as an aggressive move because I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.”
Rosser has a far more positive outlook on his status in the world of wrestling after ten years have passed.
“I’m more me. When I was with The Nexus, I wasn’t being authentic to who I am; when I was with New Japan, I am; when I came out publicly, I was; but, I wasn’t being authentic when I was with The Nexus.”
Rosser expressed his appreciation for the opportunity to participate in the narrative of such an important historical event. Rosser was able to start his career by wrestling top performers like John Cena early on in his career when he was a member of The Nexus because of the prominent positioning the faction held after its introduction. On the other hand, Rosser’s thankfulness has developed into a full-fledged pride.
“I frequently express my belief that The Nexus ought to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on various social media platforms, as well as in interviews such as this one. Not as grizzled old men, but as seasoned professionals who can still carry out their duties while maintaining a dapper appearance.”
