Top 15 Awful Wrestling Factions You Forgot About

While the WWE has recently tried to bring back the concept of factions, they've whiffed on quite a few ideas. The great factions were always the coolest guys on screen, as fans felt like they wanted to be a part of the group, dressing like them and sometimes caring more about the group than any main event star.

Factions were a huge part of the Attitude Era, as the WWE had D-Generation X as their answer to WCW's nWo. While the nWo may have had a greater impact on ratings, WCW ran it into the ground, whereas WWE knew when to break Triple H from the group so he could make it on his own.

While those are two examples of amazing factions, there are about five awful factions for every good one, if we're being generous. When wrestlers don't have anything to do on their own, they're often thrown together in an attempt to freshen things up for them. Sometimes random teamings can work out well, but often times, wrestlers can't turn chicken s***into chicken salad.

Another element of factions are there's usually one wrestler in the group for whom the promotion has big plans, but protect their weaknesses by teaming them with established veterans.

As awful as groups like nWo 2000 and the Spirit Squad were, we still remember them, if anything for just how notoriously bad they were. But there are also short lived factions that slip our memory when trying to think back. Perhaps it's because they were just so bad and irrelevant that we didn't care to remember them, but you'll probably have a few "oh, yeah" moments when going through this list. Here are 15 factions that were so bad we forgot about them.

Kurrgan had to move on to greater things, right? The WWE decided to throw together a group of "freaks" with the gigantic Kurrgan teaming with Golga, Giant Silva, Luna Vachon and eventually even Sable, who took over as the leader of the group for a brief period. They were originally led by The Jackyl and billed as monster heels, even though they never won anything of meaning. Eventually they were turned face, but remained irrelevant. Even George "The Animal" Steele briefly joined the group before they were released by WWE in February of 1999.
