WWE RAW Power Rankings: Holiday Edition

Forgive the WWE from deviating from its usual storyline, but that’s what the holidays do. For one week only, the WWE was a festive funhouse of family entertainment.

Away from the announcement of the return of Dave Batista, this week’s RAW was essentially all about celebrating the holidays.

Check out our weekly RAW Power Rankings to see who in the WWE Universe doesn’t end up with coal in their stocking.

5: Sin Cara: For a month now, Cara has dominated every one who has come his way and this week Cara took on former Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel. Using his Olympic Slam/Senton Bomb combination for the win, Cara is quickly climbing up the mid-card ladder. While he has a ways to go before he becomes the company’s new Rey Mysterio, he continues to make his case for our attention.

4: Kofi Kingston: This hasn’t been the easiest year for Kingston and his loss to Ryback this week on RAW was a sad one. Easily one of the best workers in the company, Kingston deserves better. Here’s to hoping Kingston’s 2014 contains a gimmick change and some real title opportunities.

3: Fandango: His win over Dolph Ziggler this week on RAW gave him his Intercontinental Title shot. Blessed with a ton of athletic ability and a gimmick that has gotten over with fans, Fandango has an opportunity next week against Big E. Langston that could be the biggest match of his career.

2: The Wyatt Family: In one of their best matches to date, the Family defeated former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan as well as the current Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust. With a plethora of momentum and Bryan in their sights, the Family is one of the most formidable threesomes in WWE history.

1: The Shield: Win lose or draw, The Shield has a solid match with whoever they’re in the ring with. This week against CM Punk, John Cena and Big E. Langston, The Shield pushed the Intercontinental Champion and two former WWE Champs to their limits.
