Fortune: This young stable has been one of the hottest topics in TNA since becoming a faction in July of 2010. The group consists of AJ Styles, Kaz and Beer Money. I believe that this group has been solid for TNA in so many different ways, but they are not legendary status in my eyes. In order for this group to ever become as successful as other stables, they need to decide who the rightful leader is and have that man become world champion while the other members hold singles and tag team gold. Close but no cigar in my book.
The Hart Foundation: Bret Hart’s heel turn in 1997 led to this group forming. This was one of the hottest group of heels to hit the WWE in the 90’s. Led by Bret Hart, this group would lead the wonderful storyline of the United States versus Canada that rocked the WWE to its core. I felt like this stable was great, but they weren’t together long enough to earn a spot in my top five list.
Nation Of Domination: Usually, race doesn’t come up in professional wrestling storylines but this group became one of the top heel stables of the 90’s by using the race card. Originally, Ron Simmons was known as the leader of the group, but as new members were ushered in, so too was a new leader, and his name was The Rock. The Rock used this stable as his platform to superstardom and never looked back. The stable died quickly after The Rock became a main event player, so as great as the stable was, it just wasn’t good enough to make the list, if you smell what I’m cooking.
The Corporation: Vince McMahon is considered by many to be the greatest heel of all-time, so it would be fitting to mention his stable as one of the greatest groups ever assembled in pro wrestling history. The Corporation had a lot of great moments, and they feuded with some top talent like Stone Cold Steve Austin and D-Generation X. The reason that they didn’t make the list was because it just never had the proper stable feel behind the group. McMahon had too many stars in the stable to be shuffled in or out depending on the storylines. So yes, the Corporation was a great group, but they weren’t powerful enough to earn a spot on the list.
The Von Erich Family: The Von Erich Family was a very popular stable in World Class Championship Wrestling. This stable was one of the hottest groups on the wrestling scene of the 1980’s, and their feud with the Fabulous Freebirds is considered by some as the best feud of the 80’s. I know that many wrestling fans would want this family put into the list, but I didn’t feel that they were as great as some of the stables on my list.
