As the signature and iconic stables of the Attitude Era, comparisons between the nWo and D-Generation X are made often. Recently, Road Dogg sat down with Chris Van Vliet on the latter’s podcast to discuss comparisons between the two and said he understood them. Road Dogg also explained what he thought DX did that was better than their nWo counterparts. He said,
“I get the comparison. I think they came at the same time. I just think one of them – look, to me, and of course I’m biased ’cause I was in one, I just thought DX was kind of cool because we were distinct, and that was us.”
Road Dogg went on to say, “I felt like they added people every chance they got, split into different [subgroups]. I liked it when it was just Hogan and the Outsiders, you know what I mean? I just felt like the nWo got kind of bastardized.”
Each group was formed within a year of the other in their respective companies, with the nWo forming in 1996 and DX forming the next year. Both groups have been inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame.
