  Japan Glossary - Sumo Wrestling
Currently professional sumo is organised by the Japan Sumo Association.
All practising wrestlers are members of a training stable run by one of the oyakata, who is the stablemaster for the wrestlers under him.
In the evening sekitori may go out with their sponsors while juniors stay at home in the stable, unless they are to accompany the stablemaster or a sekitori as his manservant when he is out (this is normally a more privileged role given to a riikishi who may be nearing sekitori status himself).

 Professional Wrestling
As late as the 19th Century, wrestling was a respected and even prestigious sport, a favorite among every strata of society, from peasant to President (Abraham Lincoln was an accomplished wrestler; interestingly, so was Donald Rumsfeld).
As wrestling carved out its niche on television (with a few false starts along the way), wrestlers began to emerge as personalities, sometimes becoming stars for reasons almost entirely unrelated to their ability to wrestle per se.
Wrestling had been steadily evolving into a simple morality play — which meant that whenever possible, and especially in high-profile main event matches, the formula was to pit a good and pure wrestler (called a "babyface") against a bad and evil wrestler (known as a "heel").

 P. Staniforth
It was my dream as a youth to play professional baseball, however as I moved into high school, my father suffered a serious back injury in his workplace leading to many years of surgery and disability for him.
But what I learned about the wrestling fan is that after they work hard all day to raise their families, keep a roof over their children’s head, try to keep their loved ones safe and out of trouble; it was important that they be recognized by someone for their work.
This was important to me. In the years I spent in the wrestling business, I tried to impress upon all I would meet that the heroes of America are not athletes, but the dishwasher, the mechanic, the trash man; and all individuals who work together to raise healthy and respectful children.

 Wrestling Exposed
Being a typically male directed sport, professional wrestling has always leaned towards a chauvinistic representation of entertainment, the male performers being the serious competitors, the centre of the company, whilst the female performers were sidekicks or sideshows.
As professional wrestling moved out of the carnivals and into small arenas, becoming a national past time of America through the traveling stars of the NWA during the fifties and onward, the showmanship had to be modified for such an audience.
Professional wrestling has to some degree developed a more ‘whole’ role for women over the decades, but sadly, it has to have a significant effect on mainstream professional wrestling, which seems to still have the cultural status quo from the mid nineties.

 Cultural Politics and Professional Wrestling
As professional wrestling enjoys extraordinary success today with the public, scholars of popular culture are left to explain its appeal.
Wrestling promoters generally, and Vince McMahon specifically, have gone to great lengths to promote a new rebellious image and to break down the old standard of a pure, undefiled good, versus a malicious, unrepentant evil.
Despite the changes, however, many of the central themes in professional wrestling are not brand new at all, but they draw from the rhetoric and symbolism of the political arena over the last two decades.

The nWo (New World Order) was both a professional wrestling storyline and the stable of wrestlers who were its central players.
According to the storyline, the nWo were representatives of another wrestling organization (alluded to, but not actually mentioned, as the WWF, since its three founding members all formerly wrestled there), and planned to take over WCW.

 PWInsider - XTRA - [New Site] - Pro Wrestling News Inside & Out
With that said, why is it that, in the business of wrestling, where Stables have been part of the most compelling and entertaining TV for decades, that we are without one in mainstream "sports entertainment" today.
A stable, on the other hand, generally consists of a leader (main eventer, mouthpiece), a mid-upper card wrestler (IC Title challenger possibly, or a bodyguard etc), a tag team (for the tag titles and for those handicap matches that are inevitable in a faction scenario) and possibly a woman.
I can’t quite think of a reason the HBK stable would initially get together but this feud would create many opportunities for good to great matches and storylines which I’m sure any real wrestling fan can think of from the talent that is involved.
