What happens if the Kor'kron decides they don't like who is Warchief? What happens if they use their position which is supposed to be above the political system to in fact be the political position and they choose the Warchief? This has precedence believe it or not well not in Warcraft but in Roman history. The Praetorian Guard of Ancient Rome which eventually went from being the protector of the Roman Emperor to replacing the emperor when they didn't like him, or was bribed to overthrow an emperor in favor of the person bribing them. The Praetorian guard was put in to act exactly like the Kor'kron who knows they could even be based off them. Metzen is the only one who could confirm that.
So this got me thinking. Remember what Saurfang said in Warsong Hold in Borean Tundra?
"I won't let you take us down that dark path again, young Hellscream. I'll kill you myself before that day comes..."
Now Thrall was Warchief at the time, but Garrosh was acting in his name so the Kor'kron were expected to follow his orders because it was the will of the Warchief. He was ready then, who knows maybe if things ever get bad enough we will see Saurfang make good on his words.
