I am gonna start with the Factions, mainly Degeneration X.
Back in the late 90's it was always important that someone has your back. There were plenty of groups out there including the Corporate Ministry, the Nation of Domination, and DX.
Originally DX was composed of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and Chyna (Rick Rude was also a paert of this unit until he left for WCW).
WWF writers wanted to keep the Clique together but wanted them to go in a bit of a different direction.
What they wanted was for them to go to the toilet humor that the guys in the back had thought was so funny.
The next thing you know penis jokes and other childish mannerisms dominated WWF televison. The original group of Michaels, Triple H, and Chyna took the ball and ran with it until an injury to HBK looked to end his career.
The night after Wrestlemania 14, Triple H booted Michaels from the group, saying he had dropped the ball losing to Austin the night before.
In reality this was the first move in the re-grouping of DX which saw the group at X-Pac, Billy Gunn, and The Road Dogg. This group, though not the original one, was just as great.
This group had such skits as the "War against WCW" where they drove to the arena where WCW was holding a Nitro event and producing some very funny moments.
They also were great with producing skits where they made fun of other groups, most memorably the Nation of Domination.
But alas, all good things come to an end.
With the success of Triple H as a singles wrestler, the group became more and more based on individualism and eventually all story lines were phased out as the McMahon-Helmsley era had begun.
In my opinion, these guys were the reason to turn on the TV to Raw every Monday night.
You just never knew what they were gonna do, and the way their characters were portrayed was perfect for that time in the business.
While I know there were a number of other groups at the time, in my humble opinion, this was the one that stole the show.
Therefore, Sucking it at number five, Degeneration X kicks off our countdown.
