Top five candidates to join the Wyatt Family

Published 4 Comments

SummerSlam is right around the corner and with the rumoured match up seeing The Wyatt Family face off against Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Sting, it seems there is about to be a new member added to the creepy group in the coming weeks, here are the rumoured candidates. 


The real life brother of Wyatt family leader Bray, Bo has to be the obvious choice to be added to the group. He was already a part of a rivalry with Dean Ambrose a few weeks ago and he doesn't seem to be moving towards any direction in WWE. 

Dallas has no current rivalry and hasn't had a lot to do since he ended his feud with Neville a few months ago. This would be a fantastic way to bring back the Tag Team of Bray and Bo and see what Bo could do with a new character.

Technically, that should say Leo Kruger, but since there has only been a tease on Twitter, it is still yet to be announced that Kruger is back in WWE.

Rose has been a great character since his debut just after WrestleMania last year, but since his feud with his own bunny ended, he has been left as something of a loose end.

His rosebuds have left him and he and Rosa Mendes haven't done a lot on TV as of late so a new character could give him a new lease on life. 


Heath is another character who is always around WWE but never really put into a feud that has longevity. He is used as a jobber to put other people over, but there isn't a lot more WWE can do with Heath now he has become so well known as a character. 

He needs a complete change of gimmick and a re-debut and The Wyatt Family could offer him that if WWE decided he was Erick Rowan's replacement. I think Heath lacks the hair that Bray and Luke Harper currently have but he could grow it in time. 


The one member of The Ascension I have been impressed with since his main roster debut is Viktor. Whilst Konnor brings power to the table, Viktor seems to be the more calculating of the two and I feel he would fit in more with a group like The Wyatts. 

Since Elimination Chamber, The Ascension haven't played a big part in the Tag Team picture and don't look like challengers right now. Viktor could easily break from his partner to join a group destined for bigger things. 


Who would fit in more with such a creepy family than the demon himself Finn Balor? He screams Wyatt Family member and it would be an interesting way to take him up to the main roster. 

The problem is that Finn could already be too big alone to be put into a group, he would outshine Bray and that isn't what WWE want to do with this group.

It would be a great swerve though. The current NXT Champion has a lot going for him in NXT so it makes sense to leave him there, for now. 

Currently it is unknown who WWE will give this accolade to or even if they will, but what is known is that the rumours are reaching fever pitch as SummerSlam draws closer so hopefully WWE will announce something soon.
