Gentlemen, gentlemen, what you are watching, and I am reading about, is nothing more than the ole' NWA/WCW playbook. "X" Champion and his stable/gang/clan feud with wrestler "Y" who is largely on his own. Until one of four things happen: 1.) he manages to outsmart the stable and beat "X" Champion 2.) he gets help (forms a stable officially or unofficially of his own or teams up with one dude) 3.) he gets help from a power player to turn the tide in his favor (aka even the balance) 4.) he loses, never wins the belt because the company deems him unworthy of carrying the strap.
