5 WCW Factions that belong in the WWE Hall Of Fame
- The New World Order and Four Horsemen aren't the only WCW stables worthy of being immortalized.
#4 The Flock
The Flock didn’t necessarily register as an all-time great stable by traditional metrics. The group never broke out into the main event picture and didn’t rack up many title reigns. Just the same, the faction was a compelling part of WCW programming when the company was at its very hottest stages from 1997 to 1998.
The Flock revolved around Raven, whose dark persona and grudge work helped him stand out and tap into a very particular ethos of the late 1990s. From there, the oddball unit included a full on mismatch of talents like Billy Kidman, Perry Saturn, Chris Kanyon, and Reese, selling them as fundamentally contrary to convention and the status quo.
There’s an argument to be made that The Flock was ahead of its time and influenced groups to follow like WWE’s Wyatt Family or Impact Wrestling’s Menagerie. Regardless, for daring to be different and charting a new course, the group is more than worthy of recognition.Published 01 Feb 2020, 11:58 IST
