Ever since they debuted in the WWE in 2013, The Authority have quickly become one of the most powerful and dominant stables in the history of professional wrestling. When they screwed Daniel Bryan out of the WWE Championship at SummerSlam, little did we know it would lead to almost a year of pure dominance from Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and company. The Authority gained enormous heat by constantly screwing Daniel Bryan out of the WWE Championship, stripping him of it after a win over Orton at Night of Champions. At Hell in a Cell, Shawn Michaels sided with his best friend Triple H over his former protege Daniel Bryan. The Authority kept Bryan out of last year's Royal Rumble and Kane cost him at Elimination Chamber. Bryan finally conquered them with a WrestleMania win over Triple H, followed by his WWE Championship victory, but The Authority has continued to foil babyfaces aspirations on the roster.
The initial few months of the stable's existence were relatively calm in terms of people leaving and joining. It seemed for a long time that Randy Orton, Kane, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were set, but the numbers have started to alter in recent months. Orton left after effectively being beaten out of the group (leading to his face turn), whilst Seth Rollins has arrived as a mega star in WWE thanks to his role with The Authority.
We've even seen guys like Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury return to WWE TV and join The Authority, with their dominance likely to continue as we head towards WrestleMania 31. With some big pay-per-view shows on the horizon over the next few months, there is a serious possibility of more people turning their allegiance towards The Authority, as the WWE roll with one of their most effective storylines over the last few years. The question is, which stars are more likely to join The Authority? Here are the ten currently in the WWE who could switch before WrestleMania.
10 Mark Henry
9 Kevin Owens
8 Erick Rowan
7 Bad News Barrett
3 Paul Heyman
1 Dolph Ziggler
As we've seen over the last few months, Dolph Ziggler has become a bit of a primary target for The Authority. They tried to get him to turn on Team Cena on numerous occasions leading up to Survivor Series, something many expected to happen at the event itself. However, Ziggler was the hero, and became even more popular as a face following that event. But the more popular Ziggler becomes, the more possible it is that the WWE could execute a major turn for one of their biggest talents. Having Ziggler turn on Cena would be absolutely enormous, and a return to Ziggler working as a heel would keep his career incredibly fresh. The only question is, would the fans be prepared to boo Ziggler?
