• WWF Had Plans For Hardy Boyz To Join DX
During the latest episode of his podcast, WWF Tag Team Legend Matt Hardy said he and his brother Jeff Hardy almost joined DX during the Attitude Era in 1998.
Here’s what Matt said about this plan for The Hardy Boyz:
“Something they pitched is they had an idea and it was creative. This came down from Vince Russo where he wanted myself and Jeff to do pledges for DX. We were into that.
You’ll see moments, if you look back in 1998 when we’re in tight, there’s several times, we probably do it for like 4 or 5 weeks straight, when we come to the ring, we go up in the corners, and Jeff and I are doing, we do the DX (hand sign).
We we’re going to pledge for DX and then eventually kind of like end up being like their lackeys to a degree and pledge with them and then they were going to kind of see where it went, and then maybe we could legitimately like be a part of the DX when it was all said and done.
That was an idea that Vince Russo had that he wanted to try. Eventually, we did it for like 4 or 5 weeks and they said, ‘Okay, enough of that. We’re not going to do this, like, you know, these guys aren’t quite ready, let them do whatever.’
Then it just stopped immediately and was never revisited again.”
