New Nexus, or new Nazis?

It struck me last night how familiar some of the Nexus symbolism is, and even more so in the second iteration.













It seems like a suspicious coincidence, but would they? Hayes, okay, maybe... but Vince?

I've noticed it too, especially when Barrett said that The New Nexus was like a Dictatorship and they were all brainwashed. I see a lot of resemblance for sure, especially with the hand gestures(even though Nation of Domination was the same way).

Definitely wouldn't put it pass the WWE.

I doubt it. That sort of symbolism is a bit over the heads of some WWE viewers, so I don't think they intended it that way at all.

I think it is just a coincidence.

i don't think most people think too deeply about it...

but you are right...

it does seem eerily similar nonetheless

Now that I think of it, McMahon did say that he wanted to start "pushing the envelope" again...
He did say that, and some of might believe it's just a coincidence, but in all honesty it's pretty close to the real thing. You have your leader in Punk, he's brainwashing the members with all this faith stuff, they have the arm band, and the hand gesture which is pretty similar to the Nazi gesture. I think it's a bit more then a coincidence.

I've always thought of the leader CM Punk to be more of a Charles Manson type of character with some Nazi thrown in there too.

The second iteration I saw a mile away but the swastika and the N is kind of overboard. It seems like McMahon is letting Punk push the envelope with out the kiddy fans ever noticing.

Haha. Punk always pushes the envelope regardless of McMahon's knowledge.
