• Road Dogg Reveals What Frustrates Him About D-Generation X
During a recent appearance on X-Pac 12360 podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg revealed one thing that frustrates him about D-Generation X.
Below is what Road Dogg said:
“I’ll tell you what does frustrate me is when people say ‘DX’ and they’re just talking about Hunter and Shawn. Like that does frustrate me. Because whether we’re the coolest or not I do believe we were an integral part of that faction in a way that did make it cooler.
I don’t like to say we were the coolest, but I do like — again, Hunter might listen to this so I don’t wanna…well it’s not from me…but I do. Because Vince would often times go, ‘Yeah we’re gonna do DX and DX will come out and Shawn and Hunter are gonna come out’ and I would literally say in the meeting, ‘Hey I was in DX, I don’t know if you remember that, it was me, I was in there.’ So yeah, that’s frustrating.”
