They’re up first. There are stables and then there are stables. Some of them are rather inconsequential, but when you get to the top of the list, a stable can have as big of an impact as anything else in wrestling. A stable consisting of several names can do more than an individual just through a pure numbers advantage and that makes them all the more important. Now one of the biggest ever is being honored for their work.
As announced on WWE.com, D-Generation X will be joining the Hall of Fame in this year’s class. The stable, which first debuted in 1997, has appeared on and off in various incarnations for over twenty years with several different lineups and reunions. The graphic for the announcement shows Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, X-Pac and the New Age Outlaws. WWE has inducted certain members of stables before, such as the Four Horsemen.
I’m sure this will be near the top of the list. Check out some of D-Generation X’s greatest hits:
Opinion: You knew this one was coming eventually and there’s nothing wrong with that. D-Generation X really was one of the biggest stables in the history of the company and deserves a spot like this. The team survived for so many years and with different lineups that it’s almost impossible to not put them in there. There’s a good chance they’ll headline and that’s well deserved.
Whose speech will be the best? Who else should be inducted this year? Let us know in the comments below.
