I quickly lost interest in The Wyatt Family as, well, they're simply boring & incredibly repetitive. Rowan/Harper/Strowman simply won't get over with any other gimmick & Bray's PPV losses have reduced his credibility. What are your thoughts on The Wyatt Family?
A few months ago, as we were preparing for Survivor Series, I had the exact same feelings towards The Wyatt Family. But since then, my opinion has slowly changed.The loss that Bray Wyatt suffered against The Brothers of Destruction in November should be the last for awhile. Since the feud with The Dudley Boyz, Tommy Dreamer, and Rhyno started, The Wyatt Family has been unstoppable.
And since those extreme matches with the ECW Originals, I've been invested in the creepy stable. If they stick to a hardcore and unstoppable style, I believe all of them will continue to thrive.
As for Bray Wyatt in particular, I think 2016 may finally be his year. Wyatt finally made his presence felt by attacking Brock Lesnar in the closing minutes of Raw this week. Nothing screams "monster heel" like taking out The Beast himself. The last two years may be looked at as "experimental" years soon. The Road to WrestleMania 32 should be telling as to whether Wyatt can truly stay towards the top of the card.
We have all read about AJ Styles, Gallows and Co. going to WWE. But what's the latest on Austin Aries and Gunner following them being at NXT back in November?
It would be epic to see Austin Aries in WWE. Gunner could be a cool addition to NXT; not knocking his in-ring abilities, but perhaps spending time down there before coming up would benefit him and NXT? After AJ Styles joins, (which I'm almost sure he is on his way), Aries will probably be one of the biggest names in the industry to never have been in WWE. 2015 saw the likes of Samoa Joe and James Storm step foot in an NXT ring! And if Aries doesn't debut on the main roster right away, that's just fine. Joe is doing great down there and Aries would help add to the "super indy" feel that NXT has.
As for the reports of Aries and Gunner being at NXT tapings in November, I can't confirm that the report is true. Rumors have started once again (outside of WNW) that Aries is on his way to NXT... So, needless to say, 2016 is already off to an interesting start.
Do you see WWE rewarding New Day with an important WrestleMania feud this year? They deserve to be on the main card and not relegated to the pre-show.
It's too early to tell what the WrestleMania plans are for The New Day. Heck, the trio may not even be WWE Tag Team Champions by April. It's safe to say that The New Day has been a success for the company and I do think they should be rewarded with an important championship match at the biggest show of the year. The group was stuck on the pre-show last year, but still, that's better than not being on the card at all.
While writing my WNW Royal Rumble predictions, I was trying to map out a potential WrestleMania 32 card and was trying to decide where The New Day would fit in. It would be cool to see either a regular tag team match or a multi-team bout including The League of Nations, The Wyatt Family, or possibly the Bullet Club?
Did James Storm really make the poor choice to return to TNA?
I know there are some fans out there that weren't too thrilled to see James Storm "leave" NXT to return to TNA. I say "leave" because Storm never signed with WWE and was just working on a per-shot deal. I don't know how much money TNA offered Storm, but I would imagine it was probably better than the last deal he had.
His choice to return to TNA may be not "poor." I'm sure he considered what was best for his family and himself. As seen on Impact just two weeks ago, Storm has reunited with Bobby Roode as Beer Money. I'm sure the two of them will have fun with it, as well as the fans. Perhaps Storm's return to TNA was "best for business?"
