Often regarded as one of the most notorious stables of the wrestling world birthed during the famous Attitude Era, the pinnacle of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE/WWF), D-Generation X has given us some of the best memories of our childhood. With the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels and Chyna leading the team, DX gathered remained the leading stable in the ring for decades.
For their innovative and extraordinary contributions to the WWE Universe, D-Generation X will be inducted into the 2019 Class of the WWE Hall of Fame, a day before the show's 35th Anniversary at Wrestlemania in April.
Here are the top 5 moments of the coolest wrestling squad:1. McMahon Family Mockery
During the Attitude Era, the McMahon family was extensively involved in the storylines that went on through the years. The duo of Vince and Shane McMahon used to bring the best response out of the crowd. The extra-animated Vince McMahon walk followed by son, Shane McMahon's jumpy dance on an extremely catch song “Here Comes The Money” would make any ardant WWE fan's stomach turn.
So when baby-faced DX made mockery of 'The Family' of the business, it made for an instant classic.2. Goo Attack On The Spirit Squad
Vince McMahon's personal gang of cheerleading bodyguards (don't ask us how they got their gimmicks), the Spirit Squad had a great rivalry going on with DX. The stable of five over-excited bodybuilders, all dressed in green and white cheerleading attire, which also consisted of the future WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Dolph Ziggler (Fun Fact?), was always considered to be the bad guys.
On a RAW episode, the Spirit Squad called out Triple H and Shawn Michaels after the rumours of DX reuniting were in the air. Showing up on the jumbotron (the Big screen over the entrance ramp), the DX simply asked the cheerleading squad to “look up” and the rest is history!3. “Not Controversial Enough”
During a backstage segment, Triple H and Shawn Michaels were talking about picking up a target for their next prank when HHH mentioned Eric Bischoff, the WWE RAW General Manager. He said that Bischoff thought that DX, specifically Shawn Michaels was “not controversial enough”.
Upset by this comment, the Heartbreak Kid reminded the world about the infamous Montreal Screwjob and then Sweet Chin Music-ed anyone who came his way.4. SummerSlam 2009 Entrance
12 years in since their inception in 1997, D-Generation X was an entity of its own. A custom entrance music, merchandise, their own catchphrase and the whole military theme to the stable's appearance, DX had done it all. So during the 2009 pay-per-view at SummerSlam, they decided to go all-out on the budget.
In a 10-minute-long entrance, with two military jeeps with US Army soldiers carrying kayfabe guns, followed an actual tank, atop which were Triple H and HBK.5. “Suck It”, The Iconic DX Sign
Remember getting called to the principal's office for making the DX sign in elementary school? Yes, that was probably the biggest (most controversial?) contribution made by the iconic stable.
When Michaels and Triple H used to say “We got two words for ya…”, you knew what was coming. “Suck it,” you used to shout in front of your television, along with everybody present inside the stadium.
