After the ideas had all been thrown around, it was the moment of truth. Clad in customized DX camouflage gear, the band of rebels hopped on a tank and headed east on I-64. As the Scope got closer and closer, the absurdity of the situation began to set in on DX.

Triple H: Just to be clear, we went down there with no clue what we were doing.

Gunn: [All I could think was] how cool it was. You’re riding down the street in a tank to the competition’s building, hoping to get arrested because it would be funnier.

Road Dogg: The tank ride was really cool, but that’s really what I was waiting for. When were we going to get arrested?

Russo: You’ve got to understand, WCW has a live show going on at the time. We have no idea what’s going to happen. We don’t know if Eric Bischoff is going to send 10 guys out there to beat the crap out of them. We don’t know if he’s going to call the cops and they’re going to get arrested. But that was the appeal of it, the unpredictability. How in God’s name can you turn that off?

Gunn: [The fans at Nitro] went crazy. I think they were just as shocked as we were that we would actually do that. They were chanting “DX” and chanting for WWE, anything other than what they were there to see.

Road Dogg: That was the cool part. It was the Monday Night War. Everybody who was a fan of our industry was watching both shows. It wasn’t like we were strangers pulling up. It was a really cool energy.

Gunn: We kept asking them if they got free tickets. They said, “Yes, but we’re glad you guys came, because you’re awesome.”
