The League of Nations formation a few weeks ago has seemed to define the direction of the year for WWE as we begin 2016.
The Social Outcasts also debuted on Raw last week and became the third stable of four superstars to unite in the past few months, could these teams could be the focal point of this year's story lines.
THE YEAR OF THE FOUR MAN STABLE?
Many of the WWE Universe will remember that 2013 was the year of the trio with The Shield, The Wyatts and 3MB dominating WWE's creative decisions for most of the year.

Could 2016 be the year that the stables take over? The League of Nations debuted a few weeks ago and boasted the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, United States Champion Alberto Del Rio, Rusev and Wade Barrett. Even though Sheamus lost his Championship, the group have proved that they have the backing of The Authority and look set for a big push in the coming months.
The Wyatt Family have already dominated the division since the towering presence of Braun Strowman joined the group and Luke Harper and Erick Rowan both re-joined their patriarch Bray Wyatt. This year needs to be the year for The Wyatts after the past three years have seen them fail to be given the push they deserve.
There is also the team of Heath Slater, Curtis Axel, Adam Rose and Bo Dallas who look set to dominate more as a team than they have been doing as independent superstars. Social media have already labelled the group "The Job Squad," even though Heath Slater started life in the group by pinning Dolph Ziggler last week on Raw.
ANOTHER GROUP SET TO DEBUT?
Not only do we have these three groups, but WWE have failed to keep their signing of NJPW Bullet Club member AJ Styles under wraps and it seems that The Balor Club could be set to debut in WWE.
Led by Finn Balor, the club could be set to have four members and join in the war of the stables on the main roster, Styles could be set to make his debut as soon as next week's Royal Rumble, whilst fellow NJPW star Shinsuke Nakamura has also WWE's ranks and could be used as part of the group.
While the NXT Champion has stated many times that he is happy in NXT, it could finally be time for him to join the main roster and he could be bringing reinforcements with him.
