WWE Wrestler of the Week: February 7th – 13th, 2014

With less than two weeks remaining until Elimination Chamber and the WWE Network, WWE Wrestler of the Week is back. Speaking of being back, there are some wrestlers who are returning to this very column. Both the honorable mention as well as the winner are former WWE Wrestlers of the Week who are back to claim their throne.

Our honorable mention goes to the Celtic Warrior Sheamus who made his return from injury during the Royal Rumble match. Now Sheamus is back to his winning ways. On Smackdown, he defeated Ryback in a showdown of the big guys. On Raw, he and Christian defeated the Real Americans in tag team action. Sheamus was a perennial winner on WWE programming prior to his injury and seems as though he is back to his winning ways. Sheamus will join Christian and one of the Real Americans, Cesaro, in the WWE World Heavyweight title match inside the Elimination Chamber. While I don’t see Sheamus winning the title in a couple weeks, I do expect him to be back to normal. What that means is meaningless feuds, but consistent matches with wrestlers high on the card.

With that said, I am happy to award the WWE Wrestler of the Week to Bray Wyatt, who scored two victories this week. On Smackdown, Wyatt won a singles match against Goldust. A few days later on Raw, the entire Wyatt Family defeated Goldust, his brother Cody Rhodes and Rey Mysterio.

From the moment he transformed from the boring old Husky Harris to the mysterious and intriguing Bray Wyatt, the son of Mike Rotunda has been a star. He and his “family” were among the new crop from NXT who quickly rose to the main roster. Wyatt has recently been involved in storylines with top stars like Daniel Bryan and soon to be John Cena. I have heard comparisons of Wyatt’s character to the Undertaker and Mankind, which very much excites me.

Unlike the Shield, I don’t necessarily see a split of the Wyatt Family anytime soon. The Shield’s Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose have a lot more potential to do well as singles stars. Erick Rowan and Luke Harper are perfect compliments to Wyatt. The leader of the Family is very good at being just that. A leader of a group or faction. WWE management clearly is behind him too. If they weren’t, he wouldn’t be put into spots with the two top babyfaces of the company. Let’s also not forget that Bray pinned Bryan cleanly at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.

I think it’s only a matter of time until members of the Wyatt Family have gold around their waist. Whether its Harper and Rowan as tag champions or Bray with the Intercontinental title, the push of the Wyatts has only just begun. Bray may be too big of a star for a midcard title, but it seems like his era of stars are stuck there. With Randy Orton, John Cena and Batista hogging the main event, Bray will have to settle for top of the midcard. For now.
