8 WWE Factions You Totally Forgot Existed

8. The Corre

Without a doubt, The Corre is perhaps the one group on this list which still resonates with today's audience, but only on account of two things: Their roots and just how recent their appearance was. But while their emergence was relatively recent, their 2011 tenure was also quite brief. Following the ejection of leader Wade Barrett from his previous faction, the much more memorable Nexus. Aligning himself with fellow former Nexus members Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater and adding the muscle of Ezekiel Jackson, The Corre looked for a short time like it was going to be to The Nexus what The Wolfpac was to nWo Hollywood. Despite a couple of teased throwdowns with their former colleagues, The Corre simply failed to gain any sort of real traction, thanks in part to the still-active brand split and their place opposite Monday Night Raw's Nexus on Friday Night Smackdown. As such, it came as little surprise when they went out not with a bang, but with a whimper less than six months after forming.
