These three teams were great factions, but not great enough to make it into my top five. Remember this is merely opinion and personal preference, and I'm not downplaying the role they had in professional wrestling's history.
The Wyatt Family
|The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper, Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan)|
|The Legacy (Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase Jr.)|
The Nation of Domination
|The Nation of Domination (D-Lo Brown, The Rock, Faarooq Asad, Kama Mustafa)|
This may come as a surprise that these guys didn't crack the top five. It was a very hard decision between these guys, and the group that'll come in at number five. The Nation of Domination was a big part of arguably the greatest period for professional wrestling, the Attitude Era. The group debuted on November 18, 1996, originally starting out with Faarooq, Clarence Mason, J.C. Ice, and Wolfie D. They didn't really catch fire until the man who would soon be the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, The Rock, joined and led the group, and really took off as a star. The group not only helped The Rock become a main eventer, but skyrocketed the careers of Farooq, Mark Henry, and how could we forget D'Lo Brown and The Godfather? Owen Hart was also a part of the group for a short time before "retiring", and coming back as the Blue Blazer. They held a couple championships—The Rock being a one-time Intercontinental Champion, and D'Lo a two-time European Champion all while being in the Nation of Domination. The downfall of this stable started when The Rock turned face. He was at the point of his career he was being adored by just about every crowd and had no place in a heel faction. Soon after, The Rock was attacked by Henry and D'Lo marking the end of The Nation of Domination.
