In the final full week of 2013, WWE celebrated the Christmas holiday by holding a very festive episode of Raw on Monday night. However, SmackDown was the exact opposite in that it was very wrestling-heavy and featured very little filler, much less any campy comedy.
John Cena was prominently featured on WWE programming in the last seven days, as he rivaled against The Shield in six-man tag team action as well as in singles competition. As the new year draws near, when should we expect Cena to be re-entered into the world title picture and receive his rightful rematch for the prestigious prize?
Daniel Bryan's ruthless rivalry with The Wyatt Family raged on, as he collided with the bearded clan on both Raw and SmackDown this week. After Bray Wyatt's ominous words to Bryan on Friday night, what else does he have in store for the former WWE champion?
One year removed from his epic victory over Cena in the main event of WWE TLC, Dolph Ziggler now finds himself losing to the likes of Fandango and others on a weekly basis. What will it take to get the bleached-blonde Superstar back to prominence in 2014?
