* FingerpokeOfDoom: Preceding the actual TropeNamer in fact! When Wrestling/SgtSlaughter in his role as Commissioner tried to break Shawn and Hunter up by pitting them against each other for the European Title, the pair worked out what he was doing and made a complete farce of the affair. They cut incredibly [[LargeHam hammy]] and over-the-top promos before the match and then Hunter gently pushed Shawn over, ran the ropes back and forth across the ring for [[OverlyLongGag an absurdly long time,]] then dropped the weakest splash in wrestling history on an unmoving Shawn and covered him for the 3 count.

Now, that's the boring answer. So, [[CatchPhrase are you ready?]], No TVTropes, [[MemeticMutation I said ARE YOU READY?]] [[EarWorm Break it down!]]. Ahem, D-Generation X exemplified the VulgarHumor craziness of the late 1990s [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]]. It consisted of Wrestling/ShawnMichaels, Wrestling/TripleH, Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, [[Wrestling/SeanWaltman X-Pac]], Wrestling/{{Chyna}}, [[Wrestling/JesseJames Road Dogg]], Wrestling/BillyGunn, Wrestling/RickRude, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[Wrestling/TerriPoch Tori]]. [[SelfDemonstratingArticle As you can see]], not every member of D-X was successful, but its legacy and the lengthy [[TrueCompanions bond]] between all (well, most) of them changed the careers of everyone involved and in many ways wrestling forever.

* OrderedApology: After they took over RAW one night from Jonathan Coachman when Vince was out, due to the fact that they didn't have the legal authority to do that. Shawn was willing but Hunter saw no point, and the attempts to apologize were constantly shot down to the point that they hadn't apologized to anyone at all. Shawn even attempted to apologize for something ''hadn't even happened yet''.

* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: Shawn and Hunter, post-2000. They teased a DX reunion during Shawn's original 2002 comeback, but that lead to a [[HolyShitQuotient heel turn]] for Hunter and a three-year rivalry. They finally pulled the trigger in mid-2006, and ran with it until Shawn's retirement in 2010.

* SixthRanger: In late 1998 to 1999, [[Wrestling/MickFoley Mankind]] was a unofficial member of the group during their war with the Corporation and, in fact, DX was watching Mankind's back during his famous first world title win. After the match, DX hoisted him on their shoulders with smiles too big not to be real.

*** Roadie's greatest plan ever involved a one fall match that had three teams facing each other for the Tag Titles. LOD 2000 and Disciples of Apocalypse did most of the fighting while the Outlaws stood on the corner until finally LOD and DOA had enough and tagged BOTH Outlaws into the match, forcing the tag team champs to fight. Road Dogg would end up laying down for Billy Gunn and got the easy pin and title retention to the absolute horror of the other two teams. The next time the Outlaws had a title defense, the commentary team has mentioned that the Outlaws' loophole had been closed and that two partners could not be tagged in at the same time.

'''D-Generation X''' is a ProfessionalWrestling PowerStable that began in the Wrestling/AttitudeEra of the Wrestling/MondayNightWars (roughly late 1997) and ended in March of 2010, after ''many'' incarnations. It also has close ties to Wrestling/TheKliq (due to RealLifeWritesThePlot) and the Wrestling/NewWorldOrder (in the sense that both stables were very similar in their RefugeInAudacity tendencies.)

* BreakupBreakout: Triple H, who went from a smart-assed comic-relief type to [[MagnificentBastard a guy called "the Cerebral Assassin"]] and a ''thirteen-time'' world champion. Not to mention the son-in-law of the boss. Shawn doesn't count because he was well established before forming DX.
