The July 23rd Raw, titled “Raw 1000″, began with Vince McMahon introducing Triple H and Shawn Michaels, who then proceeded to bring out the other members of D-Generation X – Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac. However, one of the original members of the faction, Chyna, was conspicuously absent.
Given that she was still actively involved in the adult film industry at the time, it was understandable that WWE wouldn’t invite Chyna and the company had a TV-PG rating to follow.
Several analysts felt that inviting Chyna to a live TV show would bring a lot of bad press to WWE. “Oh, I didn’t know” On a recent podcast, Road Dogg gave the late Chyna two cents for not joining DX in the reunion segment.
WWE and Chyna
“That should have been her,” Road Dogg admitted. “That’s how I feel about it. I don’t know if there was communication between [WWE and Chyna] at all to try and get her. I don’t know. Looking back, especially now, I feel bad.
And 100% she should have been there, but that was a business decision, and I was just then breaking into the business side of things, so that [decision] was above my pay grade.
But yeah, we should have had it here. She belonged there.
I just don’t know if that would have been too much personally for some, you know what I mean? I’m just trying to be honest about that.”
Though saddened to be excluded from the Survivor Series, I remained optimistic and supportive of my friends on Twitter.
The former WWE women’s champion, Chyna, tweeted in early November that she was not invited to participate on the 100th episode of RAW. Again, I had nothing but kind words for her when I saw it.
And as for one of its members, it is an honor to be part of this historic event.
There are two words for DX: XO XO! Thank you to everyone who welcomed us into your living room and into this huge milestone — the beginning of who we are now.”
