• Shawn Michaels: “DX has always been given a lot of free rein because….”

During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, WWF Legend Shawn Michaels spoke about his 1997-1998 and 2006-2010 runs with Triple H as D-Generation X.

HBK mentioned that the two of them always had more creative freedom with their DX storylines and segment than other wrestlers at that time.

Here’s what the 2-time WWE Hall of Famer (2011 & 2019) had to say:

“When all of DX get together in the same room, it’s like the buddies you have in high school: you just sort of pick up where you left off. Some things with DX will always be the same, and I think that comes across both on-screen and behind the camera.

It’s not a DX culture by any stretch. It’s just about the joy and the fun of what this job is and what it truly can be and now it’s actually happening.

DX has always been given a lot of free rein because it was a different entity in itself, and it’s built on not doing stuff the right way. I don’t think anyone would try to scalp DX, so to speak, because that’s just anti-productive to the characters and team as a whole. I try to tell the talent that the hardest work they’re ever going to do is creatively.

I think what made DX and the Attitude Era what they were was trying to think ahead of the times we were in. We just felt a change and a wave coming very different than what wrestling was. We wanted to take it from a traditional and purist standpoint into something more as sports entertainment.”
