The Go-Home show before this weekend’s TLC pay per view may have lacked some key drama, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some solid in-ring action. Between Daniel Bryan’s debut match win over Fandango to the continued streakiness of Sin Cara, there was plenty to talk about in the ring this week.
Check out our Weekly RAW Power Rankings to see which of your favorite WWE Superstars make our exclusive list just days before the TLC PPV.
5: Sin Cara: It doesn’t matter who’s under the mask. Whoever it is (Hunico) has two wins in a row over Alberto Del Rio. That’s got to mean something.
4: Cody Rhodes and Goldust: It appears that there’s finally some real competition in the WWE Tag Team division- the Tag Team Champs will get to strut their stuff in the ring even more than usual as a result. It makes sense as well from an in-ring point of view considering how well both Rhodes and Goldust have performed since they grabbed the belts, but you have to wonder when they’ll get the chance to be in the type of angle that gives them some mic time as well.
3: Daniel Bryan: Not since the days of Diamond Dallas Page being courted by the New World Order has there been this much intrigue surrounding one man possibly joining a faction. Despite still having the love and respect of the fans, Bryan’s defection to the Wyatt Family would be beyond awesome. With a lack of compelling characters, Bryan could be a top heel, instead of the Mick Foley type face he’s become.
2: CM Punk: A win over Ambrose and The Shield on RAW, TLC and even Wrestlemania doesn’t mean much for Punk. This feud is all about making sure The Shield stays over as heels. Punk is one of the company’s brightest stars and aside from Daniel Bryan, is one of the only people in the WWE that can make sure The Shield stay pertinent. Along the way, Punk has proven the fans still love him and he’s still WWE Champion ready.
1: John Cena: The company’s most marketable star looks to become the unified champion at TLC. With plenty of momentum, it looks to be all but a certainty.
