Top 5 / Top 10

Roman Reigns and the Usos were an obvious choice to bring together for a stable. 

Due to the nature of the booking in pro wrestling, superstars are constantly coming together to form tag teams, groups or stables. Sometimes, those teams go unnamed, like former WWE Tag Team Champions Tyson Kidd and Cesaro.

Other times, the creative team comes up with a full-on gimmick or name for these groups. Some, like D-Generation X or The Ministry of Darkness, become iconic. Others, like The Bloodline consisting of Roman Reigns and the Usos, make sense even if they aren’t used extensively. Then there are some names that really never seem like a good idea at all.

Here are the 10 worst examples of team names.

#1 X-Factor

Albert, X-Pac and Justin Credible were members of X-Factor.

Like many of the entries on this list, the name of this group makes total sense, given the circumstances. X-Pac was the leader of the stable, which also included Albert and Justin Credible, so playing off the X in his name made some sense.

But aside from the fact that X-Pac was never really strong enough of a performer to have a stable named after him, there were other issues. Both the name and the group’s signature hand gesture, forming an X with their arms up in the air, were too close of an imitation of the much more popular D-Generation X.
