Similar to the WWE’s attempt at reviving their tag-team division, the company made a concerted effort to infuse more stables into their product as well. Curiously, this infusion took place immediately following last November’s Survivor Series, an annual event where a core portion of the matches consist of four-to-five man teams competing in an elimination format. However, last year’s event was centered around a tournament to crown a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion to give the WWE the benefit of the doubt. One of those newly-formed stables turned out to be the League of Nations comprised of Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Rusev, and King Barrett.
In addition to the League of Nations, we also had the Wyatt Family, The New Day and the Social Outcasts. At the time, all four factions were portrayed as heels. Much has changed since November of 2015. The Social Outcasts (Heath Slater, Curtis Axel, Adam Rose, Bo Dallas) remain a comedy heel group primarily made up of enhancement talent. The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods) have since turned babyface as their tag team championship reign continues. The Wyatt Family has been decimated by injury, and now the League of Nations appears headed for a change as well.
