Sean “X-Pac” Waltman worked in both the DX and nWo factions during their heyday, and he was recently asked which stable he liked being a part of more.
Speaking on a recent video for Dr. Beau Hightower’s YouTube channel, the two-time WWE Hall of Famer revealed that DX marks his favorite time in the wrestling bussiness. He said,
“When somebody asks me what my favorite was, I say DX because I had the most fun there and made the most money. We were crushing it, right? Everything was amazing. But longevity-wise, it’s tough, because nWo — you still see those shirts everywhere. But then you go and look at someone like Derrick Lewis, who does the [crotch chop DX pose] after he’s knocking somebody out. So, that’s a tough question, man.”

Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, a former professional wrestler who worked in both the DX and nWo factions during their prime, recently revealed which stable he enjoyed being a part of more. In a video for Dr. Beau Hightower’s YouTube channel, Waltman expressed his fondness for his time in DX.
“When somebody asks me what my favorite was, I say DX because I had the most fun there and made the most money,” Waltman shared. “We were crushing it, right? Everything was amazing.” He acknowledged that the nWo still has a lasting impact, as their shirts can still be seen everywhere. However, he also mentioned how the DX crotch chop pose is still being used by individuals like Derrick Lewis after knocking someone out.
Waltman’s preference for DX is not surprising considering the group’s immense popularity during the late 1990s and early 2000s. DX, short for D-Generation X, was a professional wrestling stable in the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) known for their rebellious and edgy personas. The group consisted of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, and Rick Rude, with X-Pac joining later on.
During their time together, DX became a cultural phenomenon, captivating audiences with their provocative antics and catchphrases. They pushed boundaries and challenged authority figures, making them fan favorites. Their popularity translated into financial success, with merchandise sales skyrocketing and their presence felt throughout popular culture.
On the other hand, the nWo (New World Order) was a faction formed in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) by Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Hulk Hogan. The nWo storyline revolutionized professional wrestling by blurring the lines between good and evil. Their rebellious nature and anti-establishment attitude resonated with fans, leading to a surge in popularity for WCW during the Monday Night Wars against WWE.
The nWo’s impact on the wrestling industry cannot be denied. Their black and white logo and catchphrases like “Too Sweet” and “Wolfpac” became iconic symbols of rebellion and coolness. Even after WCW’s demise, the nWo’s influence continued to be felt, with their merchandise still being worn by fans today.
While Waltman acknowledged the nWo’s longevity and cultural impact, he emphasized the fun and financial success he experienced during his time in DX. The group’s ability to entertain and connect with fans on a personal level made it his favorite stable to be a part of.
In conclusion, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, a former member of both DX and the nWo, revealed that DX was his favorite stable to be a part of. He cited the fun and financial success he experienced during his time in DX, while also acknowledging the lasting impact of the nWo. Both factions played significant roles in shaping the wrestling industry and continue to be remembered by fans worldwide.
