Ask any wrestling fan about their favorite stables and you’ll usually get answers like the Four Horsemen, DX, the nWo, the Heenan Family, and maybe even the J–Tex Corporation. Now ask them about some of the members of these and other factions that didn’t belong there. The most ardent fans can rattle off some of the names on this list, but most other fans might scratch their heads at the question, having blocked some of these names out of their memory.
There have been so many fantastic stables over the years that the WWE’s Wrestling’s Greatest Factions DVD can’t possibly cover them all. This article doesn’t even begin to try to cover them all either. Instead, we’ve taken a different approach and decided to look at some of the most undeserving members of these factions.
In some instances, these superstars, while being very good at what they do in the ring, simply don’t match what the essence of the faction. In others instances, the superstar in question just plain sucks and should have never been allowed to put on wrestling boots, let alone be a part of a legendary stable. So don't be surprised if you see some damn good wrestlers on this list. It doesn't mean they're terrible wrestlers, it just means that as far as the stable goes, they just couldn't cut the mustard.

1 Vincent:the nWo
Whenever a wrestling company wants to make fun of another wrestling company, Virgil/Vince/Shane/whatever–they’ll–call–him will be there. Whenever you spot a man at wrestling conventions pleading with anyone that will listen that he was part of one wrestling’s greatest angles, he’ll be there too. This entire list could’ve been just nWo members, but Vince was the first undeserving member. In the WWE, he was named Virgil to jab at Virgil “Dusty” Rhodes, so naturally he would be Vincent in WCW, but he still sucked and was definitely not nWo material (at least during the early days of the group, before they let everyone in). Letting Vince into the group definitely opened up the floodgates, heck even Disco Inferno would have been a better choice.
