WWE Wrestler of the Week: September 20th – 26th, 2013

Welcome back to another edition of WWE Wrestler of the Week, where one superstar or tag team is featured after a fantastic week. This week’s winner is a tag team that is not always featured on Raw. However, they were able to end this week with two wins. The Wyatt Family’s Luke Harper and Erick Rowan are this week’s winners.

On SmackDown, Harper and Rowan defeated the newly formed duo of Justin Gabriel and Zack Ryder. This shouldn’t come as a surprise at all. The Wyatt Family is usually on the winning end; while Gabriel and Ryder are WWE’s go to guys for squash matches.

On R aw, Harper and Rowan were successful against the Prime Time Players. Darren Young and Titus O’Neil’s recent success has been inconsistent. This match showed that while the Wyatt Family continues to move up the ladder, the Prime Time Players are not on their way to tag team gold.

Speaking of tag team gold, as we all know, The Shield’s Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns are the current champions. The Shield and Wyatt Family have a lot in common. In addition to both being a threesome as a whole, they both were among the first to be promoted from NXT to the main roster. Both have been very successful.

While reading and communicating with wrestling fans online, I actually came across a comment that intrigued me. Someone mentioned the idea that The Shield may turn face at some point and allow the Wyatt Family to feud with them. While this was not something I was interested in for a while, I have begun to warm up to the idea.

The Shield currently is helping Triple H and Randy Orton in their quest to keep Daniel Bryan and other babyfaces down. However, there have been moments that teased Triple H being unhappy with The Shield. Most recently, Bryan has been defeating members of the Shield more often than not.

When one has to consider who will be the ones to defeat Rollins and Reigns for the tag team gold, the Wyatt Family’s Harper and Rowan are the most logical option. Rollins and Reigns represent the future of WWE, unlike the rest of the tag team division. The remainder of the division is mainly made up of midcard superstars who will stay on the same strung of the ladder. Harper and Rowan though are part of the new crop of superstars.

The Wyatt Family may not be featured as often as The Shield or be involved in main event matches each week, but beware of them. They are quietly becoming top stars. Their promos far outweigh those of the Shield. That may be partially because of WWE’s amazing videographers and Bray Wyatt, but Harper and Rowan appear unstoppable right now. From helping Bray take out Kane to defeating basically every other tag team in WWE, there’s only one more obstacle for Harper and Rowan. They need to feud with The Shield.

Who do you think should be WWE Wrestler of the Week? Should The Shield or Wyatt Family turn face and feud over the WWE tag team titles? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
