We are witnessing the end of the faction era in the WWE, heres why

Published Add your comment

Factions in the WWE have given us some of the best combinations of superstars and at times, combinations that we never thought we would see and undoubtedly, some of the best moments ever.

Survivor Series 2002, the high flying style of Jeff Hardy teamed up with the muscle of the Dudley Boyz in Bubba Ray Dudley.

Three next generation superstars in Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase Jr joined forces in 2008 to form The Legacy.

Possibly the most memorable faction came to the WWE in 2002 as Hollywood Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash formed the NWO to set up the Icon vs Icon match at WrestleMania XVIII.

There have been so many memorable factions in the WWE, D-Generation X, the Nation of Domination, the Corporation and the Ministry of Darkness top the biggest from the attitude era.

Evolution ruled the WWE from 2003 and consisted of Triple H, Ric Flair, Batista and Randy Orton, three quarters of which returned for a big story in 2014.

There were two big factions in WWE these days, the creepy Wyatt Family and the Hounds of Justice, the Shield.

The events of the last two weeks aside, both groups are fantastic to watch, showed great ideas from the men upstairs at the WWE and clashed to create a fantastic match at this years Elimination Chamber event.

For the majority of 2014 we have all been obsessed with the feuds containing the factions, Evolution's battles with the Shield have been epic while pretty much everything the Wyatt family do is awesome.

But now, could the age of the factions be coming to an end yet again?

Well that may be a bit presumptuous so for this article, I'm going to be taking a look at the future of three men teams in the WWE.

Two weeks ago we saw John Cena defeat Bray Wyatt at Payback, the following night at RAW Luke Harper and Erik Rowan appeared without their patriarch and in the past two weeks have began speaking for themselves, and starting a feud with the Usos.

Bray meanwhile has qualified for the Money in the Bank ladder match and will be fighting for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in two weeks time.

They're all still together as the Wyatt Family but could that be changing?

The Shield pretty much speaks for itself, it is already down to two members and both seem to be pursuing different paths.

Roman Reigns is trying to find a way to the Championship while Dean Ambrose is trying to find a way to Seth Rollins.

Are they also pulling apart to pursue individual careers?

The members of Evolution who returned to battle the shield have already seen Batista quit the WWE, Randy Orton has had a week off and by being placed in the Money in the Bank ladder match, could be seen to be going his own way.

Meanwhile Triple H seems to be continuing with his assault on the remaining members of the shield and former World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan.

So the three biggest trios in the WWE two weeks ago could all be over in a months time depending on what happens with the Wyatt family.

If they do, what will we be left with?

3 man band? Los Matadores if you include their bull?

Well either they will have to get better or the WWE will have to create some new trios or just go without any cause those two don't make the cut.
