>> KATIE'S KORNERBy Katie Carpenter, [katiemattjeff@...]
DeGeneration X...In its time, what a great concept. Now, what a total
waste. A couple of years ago, you couldnt ask for a better group. Im
not really talking about the original DX, with Shawn Michaels, but the
DX with HHH, Chyna, X-Pac, and the best damn tag team ever, The New Age
Outlaws. Now Im sure a lot of people will disagree with what Im about
to say, but I dont give a damn. I am not writing to please everyone,
Im only here to give my opinions, and if you like them, I thank you,
and if you dont, then
I hope youll write me and tell me why.
Anyway...first off, Id like to talk about Triple H. As leader of DX, he
had power, charisma, and a loyal group of individuals under his control.
He had Chyna by his side, and the only thing that he had against him was
the size of his nose.
Now what? Hes married to a conniving slut, hes without power, he is
caught in midcard feuds again, and he has let DX fall apart.
Chyna...by Triple Hs side, she was able to share in his power. She had
the protection of a group of men. She was able to earn and keep the
title of 9th Wonder of the World. She was terrifying to look upon.
And now? She is posing in Playboy, she is not nearly as imposing as the
Chyna of old,
and she is too caught up in being pretty to care about the quality of
X-Pac...he was in one of my favorite all time matches, the loser shaves
his head match with Jeff Jarrett. He helped piss on the DOA gear. He was
hilarious when making fun of the Nation. But now I cant even stand the
sight of him. The fans constantly boo him, yet he is given feuds with
the likes of Chris Jericho and such. He doesnt deserve to have a good
storyline. The WWF would be better off to lose him.
The New Age Outlaws...Road Dogg and Billy Gunn had it all. Mic skills
and ring ability. They were always friends, even when they were forced
into an occasional match with each other. They saved each others
careers by leaving back their heinous alter-egos of The Real Double J
Now? Well, with Billy Gunn just coming back, its hard to say. But
seeing Road Dogg
reduced to fighting on Sunday Night Heat just to keep his job its a
And what is DX now? Its HHH, Stephanie, X-Pac, Roadie, and Tori for
God's sake. So this is what needs to happen. HHH needs to break up with
Stephanie and resurrect his career by becoming champ again. Hes a
talented wrestler who has way more moves than the Rock or Stone Cold. He
isnt afraid to put over the mid-carders. And he is certainly deserving
of a new storyline...one that doesnt suck.
X-Pac needs to be put out to pasture. Let him join the ranks of Sgt
Slaughter so we dont have to look at him anymore. Better yet, send him
to Ohio with the Paul Wight.
Kick Tori out, as she was only there to excort X-Pac and make it seem as
if he actually
has a personality other than being a total idiot.
Get Chyna to convince Billy Gunn to return to DX and bring back the New
Age Outlaws. In short, reunite good old DX. Make the Outlaws the tag
champs (as much as it would kill me
to see the Hardys lose the belts), get HHH in the title position, and
let Chyna feud with Lita for the womens belt. Shes not had a good
match with men in a while, and Lita needs a worthy contender.
A DX reformation probably isnt in the cards, and probably not a lot of
people want to see it anyway. But Im one of the few that do, and I
thought Id let it be known. Thanks for reading, and thanks for the
mail. Keep it coming. Catch yall on the flip side. Be well.
