Who doesn’t love a good wrestling stable? Everyone should, because they’re inarguably one of the best things in the sport!
The nWo, the Four Horsemen, D-Generation X, The Nexus; just so many great memories. And right now in professional wrestling we have a wide variety of stables with The New Day, The Wyatt Family, Decay, and of course, The Bullet Club.
When thinking about these groups, we think of the leaders, and the supporting cast of the wrestlers who made it work. Without Scott Hall and Kevin Nash leading the charge against WCW with the nWo, the group would have crumbled. Without Ric Flair and Arn Anderson, the Horsemen would have been ponies. Without Wade Barrett stepping up to lead The Nexus, the angle would have flopped outright.
However, in nearly every stable, there’s someone who doesn’t quite belong. They don’t fit the vibe of the group, and can bring everyone else down a notch. It may not be totally their fault, as they probably shouldn’t have been added to the group in the first place. Even the greatest stables in the history of the business often have one or two questionable additions...and well, the nWo probably had at least a dozen, but we’ll get to that in a bit.
Here are the weakest members of 10 popular wrestling stables.
As Rust Cohle from True Detective said "Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you're good at."
Sadly, I can't solve a murder like Rust...or change a tire, or even tie a tie. But I do know all the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme song and can easily name every Natural Born Thriller from the dying days of WCW. I was once ranked 21st in the United States in Tetris...on the Playstation 3 version...for about a week.
