[[RightForTheWrongReason But to counter the Imperial fleet in case the war restarted]]), leading to Yang's arrest and attempted execution and his men freeing him, leaving the Alliance divided and giving the empire the excuse to invade.

Forcing them to fight each other under penalty of termination was so effective it took a DeusExMachina to stop him, though the tactic eventually worked on him when Wrestling/BobbyRoode eventually turned Wrestling/BobbyLashley and MVP against each other, despite MVP recognizing the tactic and telling King and Lashley [[LampshadeHanging not to fall for it.]]

* When Wrestling/{{Vince|McMahon}} Jr bought out the W{{Wrestlng/W|orldWrestlingFedeartion}}WF, his father supposedly sent out letters to various Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA promoters telling them that his son was coming for them next and to get read. Whatever the case, the territories knew Vince [=McMahon=] was aiming to drive them all out of business, but many were making money hand over foot, confident in their ability to do so and too paranoid that to trust someone else not to mess up their cash flow and thus refused to take on Vince as a united force, allowing him to destroy the territories one by one, with [[Wrestling/{{CMLL}} EMLL]] outright [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere abandoning the Alliance]] when it got news it would have to go against the WWWF. Eventually, Jim Crockett decided that NWA would unite against [=McMahon=] whether the members liked it or not and DoingItWrong ended up [[NotSoDifferent shutting down more territories]] than Vince Jr.

-->'''Wedge:''' "This morning at six hundred hours, I was obliged to relieve every twi'lek aboard ''Mon Remonda'' of active duty. And that, I think, [[BatmanGambit is what Zsinj wanted]].... It'll cripple the entire New Republic. Right now, it's one species making up a fraction of one percent of the New Republic population. But suddenly [[FantasticRacism we have a precedent that divides them from the New Republic]].... In six months, a year, the New Republic consists of humans on one side, nonhumans on the other, no possible trust or interdependence between them... and Zsinj can march in and take what he wants."
