There was no time like it. Being an 11 and 12 year old kid and watching the WWF (which it was at the time) was a thrill unlike any other. The Monday Night Wars was a time in wrestling that will never be duplicated. I honestly couldn’t wait until Monday nights so I could watch Raw with my brothers. It was, sincerely, a feeling I don’t think I’ll ever be able to replace. I could barely wait to watch Sunday Night Heat, which is basically what Main Event is these days.
My parents weren’t too thrilled at times, specifically when I’d run around the house screaming the two words that DX had for us, I didn’t really know what it meant. I distinctly remember the monthly occurrence of begging my parents to order the pay per view for that month. They were rarely receptive, but when they finally did cave it was like Christmas morning all over again. Here I give you the top 5 moments of the Attitude Era.
5. D-Generation X Invades WCW
D-Generation X was integral part of the Attitude Era. They were vulgar, rude, disgusting, but most important of all they were hilarious. I was a huge DX fan and still am. Seeing the New Age Outlaws reunite on Raw this past week as like reliving a little bit of my childhood again. The group was made up of the Road Dogg Jesse James, Bad Ass Billy Gunn, X-Pac, Triple H, and Chyna. They were responsible for some of the greatest moments of this era, but this one was their greatest. During a typical Monday night during the time where WCW and WWF were battling in the ratings, DX drove a tank to the venue where WCW was holding Monday Nitro. Upon arrival DX was able to goat rival fans into pledging their allegiances to DX as well as having them chant WCW sucks. Not exactly a ringing endorsement from the home town fans. The guts of the move by WWF was something to be admired and this moment, as well as DX as a whole, will forever hold its spot in the Attitude Era.
