November 24, 1997:


Overview: We are one week removed from Rick Rude making history and being on TV on RAW and Nitro at the same exact time. Tonight, they will address that and more!



Review: Out comes Harvey Whippleman dressed in a suit and out to Rude's WWF Theme music. He does the Rude shtick, but DX comes out and Shawn says, "Lord knows that was a tough spot to fill" and they throw him out of the ring:



Shawn says taking advantage of live air-time is what Shawn does. Since Survivor Series, Shawn hasn't had alot of sleep:


He never thought it would end that way. He and Bret have had their differences both personally and professionally, but he never thought it would come down to this. He wants the world to know he takes full and total responsibility for what happened at Survivor Series. Bret is still under contract with the WWF until November 30th. Bret Hart deserved better. Vince and the WWF deserved better. He and Bret have had contact with eachother without the knowledge of anyone. He and Bret tonight will settle this once and for all. It could either end with a handshake or a fight, it's up to Bret.



Later in the show, DX comes out...

Shawn introduces Bret; only for a midget wrestler in a Bret Hart mask to come out:


Shawn holds the Bret wannabe by the forehead as HHH has the mic and they taunt Bret. HHH says "Bret coming up alittle short on the offense."


Shawn puts him in the Sharpshooter as he taps. The Bret wannabe says "I quit", as they continue to mock Bret. They then put a WCW magnet on his ass:


Out comes Jim Neidhart. He says DX is nothing but low-life scum and he is the Hart Foundation and he is married to a Hart. Shawn offers Jim an opportunity that Bret never gave him. 10 years ago when Shawn came into the WWF, the Hart Foundation tag team was comprised of two men. Jim had the charisma and personality Bret never had, and the Hart family never gave him any thanks. How much of that WCW contract is Jim getting. Jim says Bulldog is having some knee surgery and Shawn hits him with this line:


Woof. He's gonna give him the opportunity to join DX. The offer will be taken off the table tonight at 11PM EST.

In the Main Event, Shawn takes on Vader, but the story here is clearly not the match. Out comes Shawn..


Shawn makes quick work of Vader. After the match, Neidhart actually does join DX! They celebrate together until..


Chyna low-blows Jim! DX then beats Jim down as RAW goes off the air to Shawn saying "DX RULES THE WRESTLING WORLD!"

Analysis: This is peak DX. The midget Hitman and Harvey Whippleman acting as Rude, and then having Neidhart join DX only to swerve him. The good old days. I typed this up last week. Just here to post this real quick. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

December 1, 1997:



Overview: We are at the go-home show to In Your House: D-Generation-X where Shawn Michaels will defend the WWF Title against Ken Shamrock.

Before DX comes out, Raw goes to commercial and we are met with this familiar graphic, if you were watching back then:


Review: Out comes DX and Shawn is in a wheelchair being wheeled out by Triple H as they stop on the stage. Shawn says DX is always one step ahead of the pack. Jim Neidhart, just like Bret, DX showed the world that DX can play anyone for a sucker. Tonight, Triple H is going to finish what DX started as Triple H gets on the mic. He says in the back, the wrestlers call him the "white rhyno" and that Neidhart has to be the biggest idiot he's ever seen. He says nothing good comes of Neidhart thinking. He says that Sgt. Slaughter can make their match at IYH whatever kind of match they want. He says there is one piece of artilery he's not gonna use, and he's gonna save it for Slaughter's old lady, and that's the big bazooka.

Shawn says he knows everyone is wondering why he's in a wheelchair, but he's not injured. Chyna has been putting him in some hard workouts to get ready for Shamrock. Shawn says that Ken lives and dies with the ankle-lock, so he's been in the gym training his legs and his pain tolerance is at an all-time high. So, Triple H kranks Shawn's leg all the way around to show that Shawn is ready, in clearly some kind of magic trick or something:



Shawn finishes it out by saying you make the rules, and DX will break them.

In the main-event, Triple H beats Jim Neidhart and beats him up after the match and spray paints WCW on Neidhart's back as Jim makes his final WWF appearance and is on his way to (sadly) flounder in WCW for a couple of years.

Analysis: Watching this back, I'm surprised they didn't do more with the Shawn/Shamrock match here on the go-home show here. Sure, Shamrock was never gonna win the Title at In Your House: DX, which is all the more reason to me that they should shine Shamrock up during the build to make us believe that maybe he does have a chance. But instead, they didn't do anything. I guess the positive here, on the flipside, is they didn't make him look bad in the build, either, because they barely had any face to face interactions. Oh, well. At least the match itself is good, as we will see in six days from now.
