D-Generation X was a professional wrestling stable/tag team that originally consisted of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Rick Rude, Chyna and Sean “X-Pac” Waltman within the World Wrestling Federation. D-Generation X was the first major group assembled by WWF President Vince McMahon in 1997 after the Montreal Screwjob with the goal of destroying Bret Hart and his followers. The name refers to an censored phrase which viewers at home were not supposed to hear on television. The stable rose to prominence during the WWF’s Attitude Era in 1997–1999. In 1998, they introduced a DX replica military jeep called “The War Wagon”. From June 1997 to March 1999, members Michaels and Triple H teamed together as the WWF Tag Team Champions; during this time, Waltman also wrestled alongside Michaels as a member of DX.

The stable expanded and mutated throughout its existence into and out of various roles until its eventual disbandment in early 1998. The original incarnation was based on a black nationalist theme and included Faarooq, D’Lo Brown, Savio Vega and Kama Mustafa; the latter two later left the group. Faarooq would be the only member to appear in all three variations of the Nation.

In late 1997, The Rock would join the group after being kicked out of The Hart Foundation, becoming the de facto leader. After losing the WWF Tag Team Championship to Vader and Mankind at D-Generation X: In Your House in December 1997, The Rock and Faarooq began having disagreements within the group. This led to a split at Royal Rumble in January 1998, when The Rock turned face and aligned himself with fellow former Nation member D’Lo Brown against Faarooq and new recruits Mark Henry and D’Von Dudley. This iteration of the Nation quickly disbanded afterwards.

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen was a professional wrestling stable in the National Wrestling Alliance’s Jim Crockett Promotions that originally consisted of Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and Ole Anderson. The group began its initial run in mid-1985, named after the film The Show Off which starred Harry Langdon. This incarnation lasted until late 1988 when Arn Anderson was kicked out of the group by Flair. The Horsemen name was resurrected in early 1992 with a different lineup that featured Barry Windham instead of Ole Anderson and Lex Luger instead of Blanchard.

The Four Horsemen have been described as being “the nWo of their day”. They feuded heavily with Dusty Rhodes and The Road Warriors (Hawk and Animal). They also feuded with other top babyface teams such as the Steiner Brothers (Rick and Scott), Sting and Lex Luger, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson). They eventually broke up in 1999 after a failed attempt to keep them together with Chris Benoit replacing Flair.
