• “You almost wanna laugh about it” – Attitude Era Veteran On DX Running WWE Today

After longtime (since 1982) WWF/WWE promoter Vince McMahon retired from all his positions earlier this year, his son-in-law Triple H is running the creative department and booking the shows, while his former D-Generation X buddy Shawn Michaels is running NXT and another DX member, The Road Dogg Jesse James is running the house shows (WWE Live Events).

During a recent WrestleBinge interview, WWF Attitude Era veteran Dan Severn, who is also a Mixed-Martial-Arts Legend, laughed about them being in charge now, because back in the day they were such bad role models.

Here’s what the UFC Hall of Famer had to say:

“Well, again, when you look at the comedicness of what they were at one point in time as just regular showmen and now to be in that role, you almost wanna laugh about it because they were such poor role models (*laughs*) and now they are the leadership.”

Apart from winning several UFC Championships during its early days in the mid-90s, Dan Severn also worked as a professional wrestler, who held the National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Championship for 4 years from February 24th 1995 until March 14th 1999, including a stint in the WWF during the famous Attitude Era (1998-1999), where he came in as part of Jim Cornette’s NWA Invasion angle and brought the NWA World Title with him.

Severn won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship for a second time on March 9th 2002, but had to vacate it almost 3 months later due to not signing with NWA’s new partner promotion Total Nonstop Action! (TNA), where his former UFC opponent Ken Shamrock won the vacant title at their inaugural pay-per-view.
