Mick Foley not too long ago recalled a dialog he had with former WWE author Vince Russo about D-Technology X in 1998.
Shawn Michaels took a hiatus after dropping the WWE Championship to Stone Chilly Steve Austin within the WrestleMania 14 primary occasion. The next night time, The New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn and Street Dogg) joined Chyna, Triple H, and X-Pac in a new-look D-Technology X with out Michaels.
On the newest episode of his podcast, Foley mentioned The Heartbreak Child made it clear that he was sad with the group’s further members:
“Vince Russo was actually bummed out on the post-Mania get together. ‘Hey, Vince, what’s flawed?’ and he was actually down. He’d acquired a browbeating from Shawn Michaels about how they’d actually weakened DX. I assume Shawn knew that Street Dogg and Billy had been becoming a member of. Man, inside 24 hours, that they had each bit of warmth again after which some, tenfold.” [16:41 – 17:09]
Mick Foley (aka Cactus Jack) and Terry Funk (aka Chainsaw Charlie) defeated The New Age Outlaws in a Dumpster Match at WrestleMania 14. As Foley alluded to, Billy Gunn and Street Dogg immediately regained momentum because of their alliance with D-Technology X.
D-Technology X grew to become WWE Corridor of Famers in 2019
The legendary group fashioned on October 13, 1997. It initially consisted of Chyna, Shawn Michaels, Rick Impolite, and Triple H. Nonetheless, Impolite left a month later when he joined WWE’s rivals WCW.
Billy Gunn, Chyna (posthumous), Michaels, Street Dogg, Triple H, and X-Pac had been inducted into the WWE Corridor of Fame in 2019 as D-Technology X members.
Michaels, Street Dogg, Triple H, and X-Pac reunited on the Thirtieth-anniversary episode of RAW in January. Fellow WWE Corridor of Famer Kurt Angle jokingly tagged alongside to take the place of Gunn, who didn’t attend resulting from his AEW contract.
