• Reason Behind WWE Not Inducting DX Into The WWE Hall Of Fame In 2013

According to PWInsider, WWE approached Bruno Sammartino for a WWE Hall of Fame induction as the main (final) inductee in the Class of 2013.

However, Bruno turned down the offer at first.

This led to WWE coming up with a backup plan for the final inductee(s) for that year’s class which would’ve been D-Generation X.

This would’ve led to HBK becoming a two time WWE Hall of Famer (as he was inducted in 2011 as well) and Chyna getting a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame as well.

However, Bruno later reconsidered his decision and took his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame and the plan for DX being inducted was dropped for the time being.

This doesn’t mean that DX will never get inducted. It’s only a matter of time that this legendary stable, who recently had a possible final match as a tag team (HHH & HBK) at WWE Crown Jewel, will get inducted into the Hall of Fame and let’s hope that Chyna is also inducted as a part of the group (as Triple H noted that Chyna most likely won’t be inducted as a singles inductee).
