Welcome to year four of Wrestler of the Week. Much like the previous three years this will continue to be a little way to highlight an individual (or tag team as the case may be) that had a particularly banner week in terms of storyline or on-air achievement. Just like in previous years, in addition to highlighting a Wrestler of Week, two honorable mentions will also be noted. Throughout the year point totals will be tallied. Just like in year three, each week 10 points will go to the actual Wrestler of the Week, 5 points going to the first Honorable Mention and 3 going to the second Honorable Mention. At the end of the year a Wrestler of the Year will be crowned.
This week is an all-WWE week as the company delivered last night with the SummerSlam pay per view. Stephanie McMahon, The Bella Twins, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Rusev all looked impressive as well, but tonight’s winners are all about the company’s new Champions.
Wrestler of the Week
“The Beast Incarnate” absolutely dominated John Cena last night at SummerSlam in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship bout. He hit Cena with a F-5 within the first minute of the match starting and then punished Cena with sixteen German suplexes throughout the match, before finally administrating the mercy kill with another F-5. Lesnar looked absoutely dominant in what eventually turned into an extended squash match. The WWE World Heavyweight Championship scene just a lot more dangerous as eyes already start took look at WrestleMania 31 in 2015.
Also last night at SummerSlam, “The Show Off” defeated The Miz to win the Intercontinental Championship. Fans have been clamoring for a bigger role for Ziggler for a long time now, and perhaps this is chance to break out once again. With the new WWE Champion working a very limited part time schedule, the Intercontinental Champion now looks have their stock rise immensely.
And finally, last night saw the 22-year-old British star defeat her “frenemy” AJ Lee to win the Divas Championship for a second time. The two ladies have dominated the Divas division for all of 2014 and it looks as if their rivalry will continue to rage on in the weeks to come.
