Things picked up quickly from there as the “invasion” came closer and closer. To prevent their cover from being blown, only a select few knew about it. Not even Triple H’s DX cohorts had any idea what they were doing until they got to the arena in Hampton. Once they were clued in, the creativity started to flow.

Russo: We had a guy at WWE, his name was Richie, he was the prop guy. Whatever you asked Richie to get, he would get. No matter what it was, it always looked great and it always worked. Sure enough, I put down in the format, “DX drives a rocket launcher,” never thinking in my wildest dreams that this lunatic is going to find a rocket launcher. Less than 24 hours later, I get a call from Richie. “Vince, we got you a rocket launcher.”

Triple H: Nobody knew, just me, Mr. McMahon and Russo. [X-Pac and The New Age Outlaws] came up to me and said, “There’s a bunch of military stuff outside, like a tank. Is that for us? What are we doing?” I said, “I can’t tell you yet, but it’s going to be awesome. Trust me.”

Road Dogg: I didn’t believe it. I didn’t believe they were actually going to let us do that. It was so out of bounds and something that was so groundbreaking that I just didn’t believe them.

Russo: The most enjoyable thing to me was DX themselves saying, “We’re going to do what? Really? We have a rocket launcher?” Once we told them, they were fully on board. It was a lot of fun.

Billy Gunn: I was the one that came up with the sticks in our hats.

Road Dogg: I actually had props cut a hole in the Kevlar helmet so my braids could come through [the top]. What the hell were we thinking?

Russo: That’s the thing about working for WWE. No matter what idea you came up with, it always turned out right. It always turned out to perfection and that was because of the people in those spots, the people that you depended on. If they didn’t deliver, you wouldn’t have gotten half the stuff you saw on TV. They just delivered every time.
