We Are (Wyatt) Family

For weeks I've been eagerly awaiting the Raw debut of the Wyatt Family.  I have only seen a little bit of their work on FCW, but liked what I saw.  Plus, the vignettes that have been airing, added to my interest.  As I've mentioned before, I get up for work at 2 a.m., so watching all of Raw isn't in the cards for me.  I stayed up until the firing of Vickie Guerrero, which I expected to be interrupted by the Wyatt Family.

I was disappointed as I turned off my TV at 9:10 and Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, and Erick Rowan hadn't yet come out.  I was even more disappointed to get home from work to find for whatever reason my DVR did not work.  I'm grateful we live in a world of online video and I was able to see these three  unique individuals make their debut.

Overall, I am impressed with what I saw.  I like how the production team put together the promo of Wyatt talking before the group headed out to the ring.  Kane was an interesting choice of victims, as I had read speculation it would be everyone from the Shield to Triple H to Mr. McMahon.  The pain and destruction they inflicted on the Big Red Machine showed us the Wyatt Family isn't a group to be taken lightly.

It was a powerful debut, short and to the point.  It'll be interesting to see of course what this means for Kane as he was carted away from the ring, just days before he's to appear in the Money in the Bank All Stars match.  I also wonder what this all means for Daniel Bryan.  Is Team Hell No finished?  Bryan seems to be getting over as a solo star and going back to Kane could be viewed as a step back.

Of course another possible ally for Kane in this battle would be big brother The Undertaker.  But with his limited schedule, I don't know if that's realistic either.  One thing is for certain, the Wyatt Family has made an impact on the WWE and will have fans eagerly waiting to see what their next move and who their next victim will be.

  1. It will be The Undertaker teaming with Kane. Brat is out to get the "evil" and they fit.
