The DX 25th anniversary celebration on Raw was perfect

WWE has long had a tendency to overdo everything, take something cool and make it decidedly uncool. This was typically done by beating you over the head with the good until it wasn’t anymore.

So there was a fear that Triple H could run wild with the 25th anniversary celebration of D-Generation X d. Monday Night Raw in Brooklyn this week. But that’s not what happened at all.

They got a few backstage segments for some of their hijinks, toned down to better fit both their age and the televised presentation we’ll get from WWE in 2022. There was some cursing, some playful banter, a double standard or two, and even Road Dogg and Shawn Michaels book a match between The Miz and Dexter Lumis next week.

Finally comes the main event segment, they came out to the ring with about 10 minutes left in the show.

X-Pac gave a classy shout out to Chyna, calling her the key ingredient that made the DX recipe work.

Road Dogg did his intro bit so the fans could deliver his lines and shout out Bad Ass Billy Gunn. By the way, Corey Graves had a great line about how he’s “doing something with office equipment these days.”

Triple H joked about having to catch his breath to do the “let’s get ready to suck it” intro bit.

And good old HBK made a joke about not letting them do this in another 25 years, but they still only have two words for us.

They didn’t spend too much time, they were incredibly self-aware, and everyone had a bit of fun hearing the entrance music and seeing the boys back together.

Well played all around.
