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.
Wrestler of the Week
Mr. Money in the Bank had another big week on WWE TV, unsurprisingly. In the main event of Monday Night RAW he defeated his arch nemesis Dean Ambrose in a wild Falls Count Anywhere Match and punctuated the proceedings by giving Ambrose a Curb Stomp through some strategically placed cinder blocks. Then he traveled to SmackDown on Friday night and defeated former World Champion Jack Swagger via count out. Rollins’ momentum keeps growing as 2014 rolls on.
The brothers in paint returned to action against somebody that wasn’t the team of Curtis Axel and Ryback this past week WWE Monday Night RAW. The brother tandem defeated the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions (and fellow brother tandem) Jimmy & Jey Uso in a non-title bout. They then kept the newfound success going Friday night on SmackDown when they defeated The Wyatt Family (Harper & Rowan) in another tag match.
The reigning and defending TNA X-Division Champion defeated an old rival this past week on the Hardcore Justice edition of Impact Wrestling when he beat Low Ki. Joe and Low Ki have battled all across the country for years in and out of various wrestling promotions. Their match that aired on Thursday was one of the best free TV matches of the week and reminder of how good TNA Wrestling’s X-Division used to be and how good it be again.
