On Raw this past week, Triple H mentioned a few of his former friends in a promo calling out Kevin Nash (this before he got whacked with a sledgehammer)…. specifically Shawn Michaels and Sean Waltman (when was the last time you heard that name on Raw?).
Vince McMahon is notorious for not hinting at names that aren’t on the active roster without having a plan to bring them back into the fold.
With that in mind, PWInsider.com are reporting that there’s been some talk in the WWE of reuniting D-Generation X with Shawn Michaels and Triple H. The reports comes just a few weeks after HHH and HBK re-formed their famous tag team at a Smackdown taping in Dallas that was only for the live audience and didn’t air on television.
Reforming DX given the current storyline where Hunter has just lost his privileges of running Raw (though he is weirdly still the COO) kind of makes sense, I guess, in a way to combat John Laurinaitis and bring back an old friend to take on Kevin Nash. Plus, they could easily bring in X-Pac/Sean Waltman to the storyline… all were members of the Clique and there’s definitely something that could be done there.
WWE were apparently talking to Michaels about a possible return at the Vengeance PPV last Sunday and Vince McMahon is naturally eager to release new DX merchandise.
Would HBK return to the ring (nobody ever stays retired in wrestling) or would he just be in HHH’s corner?
With The Undertaker, Booker T, Mick Foley and Chris Jericho all expected to be back for a run in to Wrestlemania, once again it sure feels like the WWE is going out of it’s way to live in the past instead of creating new stars.
