6. X-Pac Reveals Who Almost Joined DX During The Attitude Era
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, X-Pac talked about the Bullet Club, DX almost getting a new member during the Attitude Era, working with Scott Hall and defeating him in WWF & more. Below are the highlights:
On who Vince Russo wanted to add to DX:
“Russo wanted to put Val Venis in DX, but we said no. We stuck to our guns because he wasn’t right for DX. So, for Bullet Club, if New Japan or Ring of Honor wants Bullet Club to do something they don’t want to do, Bullet Club needs to remember this is their creation and their baby. Stick to your guns. If you feel like someone is not right, then don’t let it be done.”
On pinning Scott Hall on Raw 24 years ago:
“That seems like yesterday. But when I think about all the sh*t that’s happened in my life between now and then, it’s just unf*ckingbelievable.
I’m very grateful for Scott Hall’s willingness to take me under his wing and help me. That’s when our chemistry started. Scott already had me in mind when Vince McMahon ran the idea by him. Scott had seen me on ESPN with the Global Wrestling Federation. Scott was like Curt Hennig in the sense that he’d take the younger guys under his wing and try to teach them.
People like to talk about Scott’s selfishness, but he did a lot of selfless work in wrestling that isn’t talked about. Scott was very guarded about his knowledge. He didn’t share it with everyone.”
