DX TO BE INDUCTED INTO WWE® HALL OF FAME

STAMFORD, Conn., February 18, 2019 – WWE (NYSE: WWE) today announced that D-Generation X members Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chyna, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Saturday, April 6 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY as part of WrestleMania® Week.

One of the most innovative and controversial factions in WWE history, D-Generation X was originally formed in 1997 and went on to become a pop culture phenomenon. Throughout the course of their respective careers, members of DX held nearly every major Championship in WWE and provided the WWE Universe with memorable moments both in and out of the ring.

“Being a part of DX remains one of the highlights of my career, and it is truly an honor to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame alongside my closest friends,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque.  “We now have just one question for the WWE Hall of Fame: Are You Ready!?”

 

Botch Take:  Chyna.  Who’d a thunk it?  I couldn’t be happier to see that.  She deserves her rightful place and although I know the HOF is essentially fake (just like wrestling is), the symbolism is still apropos for Chyna.  She belongs in WWE’s HOF and to leave her out slightly damages its credibility.
