World Wrestling Entertainment has just announced its inductees for this year’s WWE Hall of Fame. This year will see not one individual, but one of the most influential wresting stables of our time — D-Generation X. Formed in 1997, during the Attitude Era of WWF, from the backstage group The Kliq, DX was made up of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chyna, and then later expanded with Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, and X-Pac.

DX was known for a lot of groundbreaking feats that pushed the boundaries of what could and couldn’t be shown/said on television, with their provocative language and signature “Suck it!” gesture; the group even enlisted Mike Tyson as one of their own for a brief stint. The group also helped develop new norms in the wrestling industry by setting Chyna in the role of enforcer in D-Generation X — a gesture that defined gender norms of that time, and paved the way for many other great female wrestlers like Trish Stratus, Sasha Banks, and Ronda Rousey; Chyna was also the first female to participate in a Royal Rumble match.

In an exclusive interview with ESPN, Paul Levesque aka Hunter Hearst Helmsley, commented, “I think it’s the most meaningful for us all to go in together and to be recognized together because I think both groups were [just] as impactful.”

Look for the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony to take place April 6, where Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, X-Pac, Road Dogg, and Billy Gunn will be inducted under the D-Generation X name.

In other news, the NFL reportedly paid Kaepernick over $60 million USD in settlement.
