WWE Wrestler of the Week returns with a week full of cold, snow and tag teams seemingly coming to an end. While I sat at home from work due to some snow days, this week’s WWE events made it easy to choose a winner. At least between two superstars. One tag team, the Prime Time Players have clearly come to an end. Another, the Real Americans look to be on their way out. Let’s take a look at Antonio Cesaro and Titus O’Neil’s week to determine which newly singles superstar deserves WWE Wrestler of the Week.
On that same episode of SmackDown, the Prime Time Players lost a match to Curtis Axel and Ryback. After the match, Titus complains to Young about coming to WWE to be a champion. O’Neil then gives Young a beat down to essentially end their run as a team. A few days later on Raw, O’Neil defeated Zack Ryder in a squash match to start his new singles run. Nice to see Ryder getting some time on TV lately. He also had a match on Main Event. However, it’s even better to see O’Neil breaking out on his own. I always considered him the breakout star of the Prime Time Players. Titus has been better on the mic, has a great unique look and lots of potential.
Both O’Neil and Cesaro had great weeks, but was one better than the other? You could argue that Cesaro was the Wrestler of the Week since he claimed a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Elimination Chamber. However, O’Neil is more certain as a singles star moving forward. He had a match on Raw, while Cesaro did not. Swagger is still in the picture with Cesaro.
For O’Neil, I see him challenging Big E Langston in the near future for the Intercontinental title. He has midcard written all over him, but for right now. However, he will be pushed to the top of the pack, hence why he will inevitably face Langston. The Intercontinental title has been with Langston for a while now as he has gone through a number of the midcard heels. Perhaps O’Neil will get some gold around his waist soon.
