No matter whether you call them stables, group, families or factions, groups of like-minded wrestlers have driven some of the most significant storylines in wrestling over the past 30-plus years and have added fuel to a lot of top rivalries.
Please note that, to qualify, we are looking for groups that had four or more competitors at the same time. So if you're wondering why, say, The Shield, The Fabulous Freebirds or The New Day haven't made this particular list.... that's why.
In compiling the Top 50 Wrestling Factions, Wrestling Merchandise and Memories looked the following criteria:
How long was the faction around for?
What kind of impact did they have on their promotion?
Did it help to advance storylines and rivalries?
How closely are various members associated with the faction?
Did the individual members benefit as a result fo being part of the group?
