Are you ready? No, seriously, are you ready...to relive some funny and very strange times from one of the best and most influential factions in the history of pro wrestling? While The Four Horsemen reshaped the industry and The Shield proved that factions can still be insanely magnetic and memorable in today's sports entertainment climate, none of them have anything on D-Generation X. In the late 1990s, on the cusp of the Attitude Era, DX members Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and Chyna pushed the envelope far beyond the point where anyone should have. In the quest for higher ratings, Michaels and Trips were willing to do anything to get people glued to their television sets. When The Heartbreak Kid left due to injury in 1998, he passed the figurative baton to Triple H, who honed his charisma and on-screen personality through DX to later become one of the most impactful wrestlers of all time. While DX could and often would kick some serious rear, especially after acquiring members like "Mr. Ass" Billy Gunn, X-Pac, and Road Dogg, they were far from solemn. They knew that when it came time to step into the squared circle that the hijinks needed to stop, but before or after a match, any Superstar on the roster was fair game to become the butt of a joke. From its formation in the late 1990s all the way to Michaels' and Triple H's DX reunion in 2009, the group never stopped producing side-splitting, jaw-dropping, tear-inducing hilarious moments.
