It seems like WWE has been having a hard time providing good main event storylines. For example, the current ADR/Sheamus feud. There is nothing there. So generic, so bland, 1 guy against the other. Putting a stable behind ADR, like Epico and Primo, would give this feud a fresh edge. It would go good with Sheamus' fighting gimmick too, ADR's rich gimmick makes sense for him to buy himself a cabinet, Epico and Primo just came out of a tag title run and now have nothing to do, so I think this would make sense. So, how about it? Could WWE use a stable? If so, what stable?

While I like the idea of stables, it's not like the WWE ever uses them properly anyway. You end up with a handful of guys to feed to Cena/Orton (and probably not Sheamus/Punk) instead of just doing it one at a time.

I like it. Del Rio's stable idea would work, and he should start utilizing his rich gimmick. This is WWE's chance to use it, and it could be similar to JBL's cabinet.

If they don't do that, they should make Del Rio set up a bounty and give it to whoever injures Sheamus, like when Triple H set up a bounty to give it to whoever injured Goldberg.

I don't think a stable is needed now, but if I were to make one for Del Rio I would have Del Rio, his paid body guards Titus O'Neil and Darren Young (because they want their millions of dollars), and Damien Sandow as Del Rio's upper class ally/friend/adviser with Ricardo Rodriquez as the group's personal announcer.

So:

Alberto Del Rio
Damien Sandow
Titus O'Neil
Darren Young
Ricardo Rodriquez

I'd love Alberto Del Rio to have a stable.

- Alberto Del Rio
Captain of the stable.

- Ricardo Rodrigous
Ring Announcer

- The Miz
Nothing else for him to do.

- Tensai
He needs a giant on his team.

- Dolph Ziggler
I know he wants single wrestling but it would be awesome for him to be on team Del Rio

- Randy Orton
He could be a good heel to bring star power.

- Kane
Another good monster.

- Team Del Rio:
Ricardo, Miz, Ziggler, Orton, Kane

Obviously you're not serious.

For a Del Rio stable to work you will need, amongst other things, someone who can break out from the stable into an instant credible feud with Del Rio. You also can't use anyone to take the shine from Del Rio so having Christian. Ziggler, Rhodes etc wouldn't allow Del Rio to shine.

For these reasons I can't see anything other than ADR with Epico, Primo and Rosa, or Hunico and Camacho. All of these together would just create ADR when you want a stable where everyone and not just the main guy has something to do.

I would go with,

ADR (Top tier talent)
Epico & Primo (Tag team, could even fued with Hunico & Camacho as they are "street thugs")
Rosa (Valet, also Diva title contender.)

Now it gets difficult. You can put these together as a Cabinet due to the Latino connection, yet you can't really go any further. Sin Cara or Rey are too big to join and you down want lWo 2012.

Del Rio just doesn't go with anyone else. I'd like to see a stable somehow making sense that has a future.

The only people I can see a connection, a slight connection as it stands, are Damien Sandow and Jinder Mahal. Due to the whole "Above the common man" thing they each have going, but that's tenuous.

I think ADR would fit better in a Laurinitus led stable, where he doesn't have to be the focal point but can still be the biggest star.

Laurinitus,
ADR,
Big Show,
Otunga,

Etc...

I'd be okay with ADR sort of taking over as Big Johnny's lead guy. He could have Show, Tensai, Reks & Hawkins do his dirty work. Otunga and Eve could also be used to further abuse power. Maybe appoint an "official referee" for ADR's matches who is corrupt as Hell.

Before WWE can even think of doing a main event stable they need to make at least one cemented main event uber heel because right now they don't have anyone who would be believable in leading a stable. The closest they have is Wade Barrett but he is injured and will need at least a couple of months to be built back up and the rumours of him winning Money In The Bank is a great start but they would still need to push harder than just having him win that match. Maybe put Drew McIntyre in there with a renewed push and then have the Tag Team of Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd although i think that team would work better as faces and be a WWE version of The Motor City Machine Guns so maybe The Rotunda Brothers instead.

In another thread i had an idea of a Mexican stable led by Alberto Del Rio and having Hunico, Camacho and a debuting Averno alongside him with Ricardo Rodriguez in his current role. Because of the kayfabe richness of Alberto Del Rio if WWE were clever they could make out he had serious power in Mexico and serious political connections which would explain why Hunico, Camacho and Averno wanting to be alongside him. Being a foreign heel it should be easy to draw heat because you only have to slate America to draw heat but yet Alberto Del Rio can't draw any so maybe an all Mexican heel stable could help and of course it would be easy to throw in Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara against them and which could eventually lead to Mysterio/Cara down the line.

If, and it's a big if, Ric Flair returns then that would open up an opportunity to do a new version of The Four Horsemen with Ric Flair in the JJ Dillon role as mentor and manager. You could, and i only say could, throw Dolph Ziggler in as the main event wrestler due to his great in ring skills and similar look to Ric Flair whilst Cody Rhodes as a Tully Blanchard style heel is quite easy as outside of money orientated there are similarities between Cody Rhodes and Tully Blanchard. All that would be needed then would be a Tag Team which with how Jack Swagger is used and his size using him as an Arn Anderson type as the enforcer but Tag Team specialist could be the way forward for the forseeable future although i'd love to see The Kings Of Wrestling put alongside the group instead.

I do like that last one! Ziggler, KOW, Rhodes, and Flair. But Ziggler would have to be developed as a main eventer a little more, like be given an actual world title run. I think he does see one in his near future too.
