WWE rumors: Wyatt Family set up for big push before 'Royal Rumble'

The Wyatt Family burst upon the scene a few months ago and made their presence known by attacking stars like Kane and The Miz. According to on Dec. 19, they are not possibly headed for their first major title reign.

The night after the WWE "Hell in a Cell" pay-per-view, The Wyatt Family finally moved into the main event scene when they attacked both CM Punk and Daniel Bryan during separate segments of the show.

The original thought process was that they were doing the bidding of The Authority, despite preaching about tearing down the walls. The feud with CM Punk was dropped after one match and he was moved into a feud with The Shield, who was basically playing out the exact same storyline as The Wyatt Family with The Authority.

The Wyatt Family meanwhile moved away from The Authority storyline and focused on trying to recruit Daniel Bryan to join them. That culminated in a three-on-one handicap match at the "TLC" pay-per-view, where The Wyatt Family beat Bryan.

Now, it looks like 2014 might start with The Wyatt Family tag team of Luke Harper and Erick Rowan winning the WWE tag team championship from Goldust and Cody Rhodes.

This could then start to transition the Rhodes brothers into a possible feud that would lead into "Wrestlemania 30" and allow The Wyatt Family to lead the newly revitalized tag team division that Triple H has promised will be stronger than ever in 2014.

Word is that The Wyatt Family could win the WWE tag team titles before the "Royal Rumble" pay-per-view.
