More DX Panel notes: Kliq in HOF?, Chyna, WCW invasion, Russo, more



The DX panel discussion including Shawn Michaels, Triple H, X-Pac, Road Dogg, and Billy Gunn. Here are a few notes:

– HHH says X-Pac complained about the DX Nation parody calling it “stupid” all day, didn’t want to be Mark Henry. But loved it after.

– Re: DX invades WCW: Vince upset Nitro starts hour earlier, HHH: “I wish we could crash a tank into their show”, Vince Russo: “we could!”

– HHH says in hindsight during the WCW invasion segment they would have tried to get into the building first.

– HHH said it was hard not to laugh during Nation parody. Had no idea Road Dogg would imitate D-Lo as good as he did.

– Rest of DX members wanted to keep the group going when HHH decided he wanted to turn heel.

– HHH talking Chyna, saying she was just as integral in DX’s funny moments- like when she got breast implants and DX made it into a segment.

– “She would fart as loud as Billy would. She took so much protein they’d smell as bad too” – Road Dogg on Chyna

– Panel loosely poke fun at Chyna/XPac but then XPac puts her over: “there will never be another one like her”

– HHH re: Kliq in WWE Hall of Fame – “never say never. Maybe”

– HBK says the 4 years away from wrestling (98-02) were the greatest years of his life personally, despite loving the business.

– Road Dogg says other than his brothers being in WCW at the time, he couldn’t have cared less about WCW.

– HHH says Mike Tyson absolutely loved being in DX, loved doing the crotch chop and kept “hugging us all the time”

– HHH informs the crowd that Abraham Lincoln was a pro wrestler… But “he was horrible. He would do jobs.”

– HHH talks about Stephanie – before Vegas wedding angle on RAW, he hasn’t said 10 words to her.

– “Voodoo Kin Mafia” TNA question was asked. Road Dogg says “Russo was writing and we got paid weekly. Bad time in my life, bro!”

    I don’t know where Triple H gets his historical information, and I really hope he was just being a jackass, but Abraham Lincoln was not a “terrible wrestler” nor was he actually a “professional wrestler”. In his younger years Lincoln was known for his grappling skill. He was considered a “Champion” in his region and won several bets. The matches, unlike anything we see today, were namely under collar-and-elbow rules, not catch-as-catch-can, and were contested as amateur bouts. Lincoln never “jobbed” or put anybody “over”; William Muldoon, America’s first real pro wrestling star, was notorious for his “Business Matches”, as working was called back then, as Mulddon earned a living as a pro wrestler. Lincoln, upon finding greener pastures in politics, left wrestling behind. There are some stories out there that Lincoln would still engage in grappling even after he was president. For certain Lincoln at least observed numerous wrestling matches when he visited war camps, as soldiers on both sides of the line wrestled to kill time. In fact, hours before Lee surrendered at Appomattox, Grant and his troops were killing time by wrestling. While there were many cheats and crooks in pro wrestling at the time, Lincoln was neither a pro or a cheat. If he lost it was on the up-and-up, the same if were to lose. He was a wiry, tall, capable grappler who could hold his own. Again, I hope to God HHH was just being a jackass, as I have not heard the audio of the statement, but if he was being serious, shame on him. WWE loves to throw the Lincoln card around, but wrestling neither started with Lincoln nor prospered because of him.

    @Motorhead Nobody is going to take the time to read your 20 line response.

    When isn’t there a bad time in Road Dogg’s life? Loser. Always hated him. Glad Russo basically mocked him with the gimmicks he gave him.
