What could have been. Stables have been a thing for a very long time in wrestling and that is certainly still the case in WWE today. The important thing is finding the right idea for the right group of people as missing on either point can be quite the mistake. Sometimes a bad idea has to be rejected and that took place earlier this year with a WWE stable that has already undergone a big change.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Finn Balor joined Edge’s Judgment Day stable before kicking Edge out to take over the stable for himself. According to Fightful Select, WWE originally wanted the stable to be more supernatural in nature but Edge was opposed to the idea. As a result, WWE changed the direction of the stable as a reactionary measure as WWE wants to change the direction of the stable. It was said to not be due to establishing a new star once Cody Rhodes was injured.
Opinion: This is an interesting way to go but I hope that WWE doesn’t go with the supernatural stuff. Outside of Balor’s occasional time as the Demon, there is nothing particularly supernatural about anyone on the team. I could go for the trio being villains who hurt people because they’re that much better, but for some reason WWE would rather go goofy than logical.
What do you think of the idea? How should the team be presented? Let us know in the comments below.
