The annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view event takes place this Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, but coming out of the most recent edition of Monday Night Raw, the biggest buzz in the WWE Universe surrounds the Wyatt Family.
After weeks of one strange vignette after another, the trio made their first appearance on Monday night, choosing Kane as their first target. According to WWE, Kane is not expected to compete in the Money in the Bank All-Stars ladder match due to the attack.
This was similar to when The Shield showed up in WWE for the first time at last year's Survivor Series event when they went after one of the biggest Superstars, unleashing their wrath on Ryback.
The Shield went on to follow that up by becoming more and more dominant by the week. The Wyatt Family should be handled the exact same way. So with that, how can they make an even bigger impact?
How about that same All-Stars ladder match? Bray Wyatt and his followers already decimated one of the participants in that match when they overpowered Kane, so why not go for more?
Having the trio come out during the ladder match and physically assault and essentially eliminate two more competitors in that match would only make them look even stronger.
Rob Van Dam would fit the bill perfectly. RVD will be competing in WWE for the first time in years, and he will be doing so in front of a Philadelphia crowd that will be strongly behind him. If the Wyatt Family were to rain on that parade, it could generate serious heat for the group.
Perhaps a guy like Christian could then try to aid in fighting the Wyatts off, only to pay the price. Right there, the WWE could have a match ready for SummerSlam.
For the Wyatt Family to be a success, they need to be paired with some of the company's bigger stars. Beating up on guys like Santino Marella and Zack Ryder isn't going to produce the desired effect.
The Shield was able to defeat the team of Randy Orton, The Big Show and Sheamus at WrestleMania. Those three men have combined to compete at WrestleMania 26 times, making the victory by The Shield that much more impressive.
If the Wyatt Family were able to do the same, defeating a team consisting of Kane, Rob Van Dam and Christian in a six-man tag team match at SummerSlam, it would do the same thing for them.
Recently, the WWE has done a much better job with the handling of their tag teams and groups. None of them have the depth and potential that the Wyatt Family seems to possess.
By using Money in the Bank as a catapult for their future, WWE will be able to get the same thing they did out of The Shield, if not even more. Who knows, maybe a clash between the two groups could even be in the cards?
