A new stable debuted on Monday Night Raw this week, one which looks rather promising for all those involved.
The group, which looks to be a sub-stable of The Authority, is called The League of Nations and includes four superstars, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, the current United States Champion Alberto Del Rio, King Barrett, and Rusev.
From the face of it, the WWE has picked the right members for this stable and they should be able to perform well together, but it also might be an indication of what the company has in store for the future. It's not ground-breaking, but it's a step in a good direction.

Sheamus, for starters, will feud with Roman Reigns - hopefully not beyond the Royal Rumble - and is likely to be saved by the other members of the group, his henchmen, on several occasions. This should push the idea further that The Celtic Warrior is a heel to be hated, but it is unclear if this will be successful.
The formation of the stable is also a good sign that Alberto Del Rio will keep hold of his title as well. He is expected to take on Jack Swagger at TLC, who shouldn't be taking the title away from him. He should also receive more TV time as well for his MexAmerica gimmick which is good.
As for Rusev and King Barrett, they could go into the tag team division. Barrett has expressed his interest in the past of entering the division and The Bulgarian Brute would be the perfect partner for him. Rusev needs another title around his waist too, rather than just being involved in silly love-triangle feuds. Hardly a brute storyline if you ask me.
Overall, this is a promising stable formation by the WWE. Hopefully, they take it in a good direction as well.
