Break It Down: Celebrating 20 Years of D-Generation X
As big as the professional wrestling world is, there are very few acts that cross over into the main stream. Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Roddy Piper, Stone Cold Steve Austin, etc.. But one group of guys that not only made it huge in wrestling but forever changed pop culture are the fellas in D-Generation X.
During the height of the 'Attitude Era', DX were the poster boys for everything wrong with the world of professional wrestling. But, despite all the criticism from the national media, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and company inspired an entire generation of kids to look at authority and tell them to 'suck it'!
Hell, I firmly believe that without DX's juvenile antics and steady stream of sexual innuendo and dick jokes, we wouldn't have seen the return of R rated comedies or mainstream appeal of comedians like Bill Burr or Louis CK.
And for everyone that's not down with DX, I got two words for ya': SUCK IT!
