Top IMPACT Wrestling Star Heath recently appeared on episode #159 of Cultaholic’s Desert Island Graps to talk about a variety of topics such as why he couldn’t do WWE’s documentary on Nexus and how Bryan Danielson and Ryback were not a part of it as well.
“Brother, honestly, it’s one of those things where we have the group [text with Nexus members] but it’s probably every three-to-four months we talk, you know? Just because we’re all busy. We’re all moving, we’re all chitchatting, we’re all busy. But honestly, I wanna say the last chat that we did have was Darren Young [Fred Rosser] commented all of us saying, ‘Hey, did y’all get a message about the Nexus documentary that they wanna do?’ And I just remember being like, ‘Yes, but I’m signed already so I can’t do it’ and then, I think [Michael] Tarver didn’t do it, they didn’t ask Ryback, D.B. [Bryan Danielson] was with AEW so it was like, all right, well it ain’t gonna happen. But what gets me is like, damn, it’s been 12 years ago maybe, that people still talk about it bro. That was one of those moments that when people said, ‘What the hell?’ I mean we might not have won that many matches, how it was planned out and all the bullcrap and how they did it. SummerSlam still pisses me off, but it’s one of those things to where they should have had us dominate SummerSlam, go to Mania, let the whole supergroup of WWE beat us. But there was so much they could have done but there was so many egos flying at the time where they just didn’t wanna see a group of rookies take a step forward I’m guessing.”
