The band is back together
The founding fathers of D-Generation X, Shawn Michaels and Triple H split apart during the Attitude era, but after watching the Vengeance press conference, it almost seemed as if they never broke up. The defiant duo never skipped a beat and was up to their same old sophomoric hijinx, wreaking havoc on the entire press conference (watch).
RAW backstage announcer and HEAT play-by-play man Todd Grisham had the unenviable task of trying to lead the proceedings, but DX tried to make that task impossible, making him their favorite target. Grisham was hit with a barrage of schoolyard tactics such as the classic wedgie and everyone’s favorite – the wet willie.
The raucous crowd at the Charlotte Bobcats Arena kept egging the degenerates on, and they were thanked with a special mooning from The Game. Unlike when Mr. McMahon was greeted with the same gesture last night on RAW, the Charlotte crowd roared with approval at the press conference.
During the event, Triple H and Shawn Michaels said that they used to perform their juvenile antics because they had nothing to lose. But now they have a different reasoning.
“We’re not going to do them because we have nothing to lose. Now, we’re going to do them because we’re rich biatch, and we don’t care,” said Triple H. “We’re going to do what we want to do, when we want to do it, and no one’s gonna tell us any different.”
Even though DX was all about fun and games today, they did sing a different tune when it came to their match at Vengeance. Triple H got down to business when it came to matters dealing with the Spirit Squad.
“The Spirit Squad’s only been here a short time, and we’re going to give them something to experience that they have never experienced in their lives before – the ass kicking of a lifetime,” said Triple H. “We’re going to send a message to Vince McMahon and everyone else in the WWE. It’s a simple message – it’s just two words – Suck it.”
DX is back together, but the relationship between Triple H and Shawn Michaels has been well-documented and has been all over the map. They’ve been the best of friends, but they’ve also been the worst of enemies. But according to The Game, they’ve always had one thing in common.
“Shawn Michaels and I have always been tight. Sometimes we’ve been fighting side by side, sometimes back to back, sometimes face to face, but there’s always been a common bond between us, and it’s always been where we started, and that’s DX,” said Triple H. “Last night was weird – it kind of felt like being a part of the Beattles. To be able to come back out there and do that and get that reaction was cool.”
