    When do you HBK is there his self. But when will DX as a group get the nod?

    I know it will be tuff with WWE just releasing billy gunb. And chyna not on par exactly with wwe.

    So maybe by 2017 or 2018?

    They can always pick certain members. Billy Gunn I imagine will be back with the company in the near future - what he did wasn't major, just stupid on his part and explained his physique at his age. They can induct selective members like they did with the Four Horsemen. The original Horsemen excluded Ole Anderson and others from other incarnations of it. Barry Windham wasn't an original.

    DX can posthumously include Rick Rude or the version that existed Post-WM 14. I guess the tradition is the workers are typically retired from in-ring competition(even if Sting is still active). My guess would be whenever Triple H is firmly done as an in-ring performer. I can't really guess the year. I can see NWO getting the nod before WCW seeing as the original NWO is unlikely to work a match again.

    Triple H goes in solo long before DX does as a group, and he won't want to go in before he's fully retired.

    Going in as the group DX suggests that the impact the group had was above the impact of the solo wrestler. They're both legendary runs, but they're fundamentally different.

    DX are only in their 40s. Putting them in raises the question wether or not Chyna or Waltman go in. Both had HOF careers, but their outside the ring lives have damaged their reputations.

    Surely the New Age Outlaws go in after this period of friends off passes with Gunn. If things never get patched up, don't be surprised if it's just Triple H and Shawn that go in as DX.

    DX goes in at least two years after Triple H goes in alone, and that's a minimum of five years away. DX will go in the HOF in the next five to ten years at the earliest.

    I would say that with HHH's massive ego, he would want his own induction.
    He would probably embrace his "Cerebral Assassin/The Game" water-spitting Motorhead-loving persona rather than his degenerate gimmick as a member of DX.
    Also, there's also the problem of Rick Rude and Chyna's induction.
    Both of them are HOF'ers in their own right and can stand on their own when it comes to their own HOF inductions. What about Tori? Does she deserve an induction? What about Hornswoggle?
    HHH and Michaels were the original members, but RD, BG, and X-Pac were members when the group had its most success as a unit. I would say that the New Age Outlaws stand a better chance at getting a group induction more so than D-Generation X altogether. Rick Rude WILL be inducted one day, that's a given. As for the group, I don't think they will ever be inducted as a group. The idea of someone going in twice like Ric Flair is a stupid idea and lessens the prestige of being inducted.

    I think inducting DX in to the hall of fame is a great idea. They should induct the whole squad, even Chyna if she accepted. I would suggest to do it as a group; HBK, HHH, X-Pac, Road Dogg and BA BG, (possibly with Chyna). HHH can go in on his own one day (if not in 2017).

    Rick Rude was such an awesome wrestler in his day, and his death was a tragedy. I think Bret Hart should induct Rick Rude.

    I am sure about other members of DX but doubtful about Chyna getting inducted into WWE Hall Of Fame!

    I think Triple H would eventually be inducted into HoF at Wrestlemania 33 or 34.

    The only problem with this is that Chyna IS one of the founding members of DX. So you can't just induct HHH and HBK, and then exclude the person who made HHH interesting in the first place. People are going to know this fact, and that's why it's impossible to induct Chyna. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they did induct HHH, X-Pac, and New Age Outlaws individually just so they could exclude Chyna.

    I have this really sinking feeling that they'll induct just Shawn Michaels and Triple H, you know, that run of DX where their gimmick was that they were kindergarten Humor shills that sold glow sticks?

    Chyna is the only member I see even raising an eyebrow for WWE, as the other 4 members are still on good enough terms with WWE. That being said, Chyna deserves to be in the HoF easily with her accomplishments, Female IC Champion, only female to compete in a WWF/WWE World Title match, First Female Royal Rumble participant. It's too bad WWE is still spiteful over some of her backstage antics though, she was one of the biggest female draws in history.

    I don't think it even requires an argument to state that Degeneration X, the one people care about includes HHH/HBK/Road Dogg/Billy Gunn/ Chyna, and that's how it should be done, WWE's sucked it up and had people that weren't on the best of terms and inducted them to make the Hall of Fame for the fans.

    I think HHH should go in individually after he's hung up his boots for good, so probably around 2020?

    nWo I don't see going in until Hulk Hogan's troubles pass and he's back in the HoF himself. Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Big Show, Eric Bischoff and Sting would be the people I would put in as the nWo, as putting the entire 30 something roster would be ridiculous. But that's a topic for another discussion.

    As far as I can see, these are the issues that have kept DX out of the HOF these past years. They were a group consisting of all these people, so how can WWE decide to induct some but not all?

    Obviously, Triple H and Shawn Michaels belong in the HOF: HBK is already in there and I can't believe anyone believes Trips won't be.

    So, fine.....if they're the only ones to go in, leave it at that.

    Years and years until D-X go in. Do you honestly think Triple H is going to dilute his individual HOF induction by already being in with D-X? I don't.

    That was my example with the Four Horsemen. Ole Anderson was an original founding member and should've went in with that group; but he got subbed for Barry Windham who wasn't part of the original incarnation. Windham could've easily went in on his own at some point. If there's a strained relationship or bad press then of course they can keep her out from the induction.

    Side note: I would not advocate X-Pac in the HOF.

    DX can very Easily go in as HBK and HHH alone,

    Xpac won't go in...

    and if NAO go in, they need to go in as a taG team but there are way more plenty deserving teams before them.

    I think the Outlaws are deserving in spite of whether or not other teams "deserve it more" - I mean you're talking about basically the tag team of 98-99. They were extraordinarily over for their card position and it's clear there were considerations for them both to go further at one point or another.

    This thing with Gunn will blow over.

    DX as a whole is probably redundant because the only members likely to be going in can do so under different monikers/singles runs anyway.

    Chyna is highly unlikely even though she deserves it. She should really be valued without consideration for the whole porn thing.

    I truly don t care for deep penetration x as many members of them were also nWo members afterwards for example Ravishing Rick Rude and Sean Waltman which is the reasons why all members won t be inducted in the hall of fame as it is a ball of confusion having members jump to WCW afterwards. I would say HBK Shawn Michaels and that s it for HOF

    Rock Rude deserves a solo induction in the future and his time in DX and NWO are meaningless to me for me to would want to even include him. Triple H is a shoe in whenever that bridge crosses so to me there's no sense to induct DX if you don't include NAO and X-Pac(X-Pac does not deserve his own induction). I thought Nash's run in WCW is more memorable than WWE's. I would induct NWO mainly to acknowledge his NWO run with him being an original member.

    There is no way that DX gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame until well after Triple H gets inducted as a solo wrestler. And that is not happening for a little while, so I see the induction of this faction happening at least five years down the road.

    As far as who gets inducted, I think it will be all of them if it does ever happen. Triple H and HBK obviously. The New Age Outlaws will both go in, their contractual status with WWE is irrelevant, and Billy Gunn's brain fart will likely be enough to keep him out of in ring participation, but is not significant enough to keep him out of the hall of fame. Rick Rude can go in posthumously. And I would assume that Waltman and Chyna would both be included in the induction ceremony as well. As long as they are kept far away from a microphone, and get screened at the door on the way in. Let's face it, lots of loose cannons with the potential to embarrass WWE have been inducted. The Ultimate Warrior, Razor Ramon, or even Jake Roberts all had the potential to be inducted and be an absolute train wreck at the ceremony, yet none of them were. There's no reason to exclude Waltman or Chyna, but I am not sure they will actually speak. Which is fine because with such a large faction, time constraints would probably preclude everyone from speaking anyway.

    I can't help but wonder when it's all said and done, how many times will Triple H get inducted? A solo wrestler for sure. Degeneration X, very likely as above. Evolution, count on it. And now the executive Authority version. At the end of the day, the guy will need his own wing in the Hall. So there's really no rush for degeneration X. All in good time I guess.

    A few years ago, I remember there being talk of inducting DX into the WWE HOF, but HHH supposedly shot it down on the grounds that he wanted to go in by himself first.

    I have every confidence DX will be inducted some day, and most likely it will be HBK, HHH, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac. Whether or not Chyna is included (and she should be) is dependent entirely on whether or not she can get her act together. WWE has made up with Bruno Sammartino and the Ultimate Warrior in recent years, and I hope they can do the same with her.

    Have to agree with others, DX will not go into the HOF simply because Triple H isnt in there yet. It is very rare that active superstars are added to the HOF.

    The next big stable to go into the HOF will probably be the Hart Foundation, but only after Owen Hart is inducted which might possibly be this year. You could also argue a case they may wait until the British Bulldog is in. Again, that would make sense this year....Bret could induct them both at the same time.

    This made me think of nWo as well. A lot of people have brought up the thought of why they aren't in the HOF. Chyna being excluded from DX really begs the question what happens if WWE and Hogan work together again and the question of nWo going in arises?

    Do they exclude Hogan? If nWo is in, does that mean Scott Norton? Luger? Bagwell? Steiner? Dennis Rodman? Bischoff? Everyone and their brother?

    When it comes to DX and nWo, it's pretty easy to exclude any of the "undesirables." Benoit didn't get in with the Horsemen.

    The WWE HOF is a tricky thing. To some, it's a popularity contest and cash grab. To WWE, I think they really and truly believe that it's a massive honour and that they make the best possible selections in their mind for talent and fans. I think the truth is somewhere in between.

    If WWE excludes anyone, it doesn't change what they meant to their fans or what they meant at that moment. It's something else.
