We've seen Abraham Washington from time to time over the past few weeks attempting to recruit superstars for his new stable, which according to sources will be called Abraham Washington's Enterprise.
Primo and Epico (along with Rosa Mendes) look to be the first members of this new stable.
But does WWE need another stable? Yes.
Over the past decade we've seen a fair amount of stables come and go in the WWE, all of which produced some top-tier stars. Anyone remember that little group named Evolution? From Evolution, Batista and Randy Orton emerged and turned into top stars in WWE.
Evolution is the prime example of how putting together a collection of superstars can create potential champions. At one point, all of Evolution held a title.
Recent stables include The Nexus and The Corre. Wade Barrett was the leader of Nexus and is now a top heel on Smackdown. Guys like David Otunga, Daniel Bryan (who was fired after his first night but eventually came back to defeat The Nexus), and Ryback (Skip Sheffield) emerged from these stables.
Of course, you can't throw together a random compilation of superstars and expect it to work.
But some of the most memorable WWE moments involve stables, including the countless moments made by D-Generation X and the nWo.
But could Abraham Washington's new stable match up to the previous successes of stables?
Depends on who he gets. If he can add someone like Alberto Del Rio, a former WWE Champion, then yes. Or maybe Christian, a former World Heavyweight Champion. The trick with stables is you want guys that need to get noticed. Personally I love seeing a power group that takes over the company. And personally I'd love to see Alberto Del Rio lead this new group.
We will have to wait and see who else Abraham Washington can recruit; but if he gets the wrong people, it can turn into another dull stable.
