ST. LOUIS – To say that the monumental 1,000th episode of Monday Night Raw was full of surprises would be a major understatement. All the months of anticipation and excitement truly lived up to the hype, with the WWE Universe constantly guessing what would happen — or who would return — next. Everyone from The Undertaker to Bret “Hit Man” Hart showed up for the historic three-hour extravaganza, which featured the reunion of D-Generation X, a huge announcement by The Rock regarding Royal Rumble and the revelation of an unlikely Permanent Raw General Manager.
Mr. McMahon thanked the WWE Universe for helping Raw reach 1,000 episodes
Raw’s 1,000th episode began with a special message from the WWE Chairman, who received a standing ovation as he strutted to the ring. Mr. McMahon welcomed the sold-out crowd in St. Louis to the historic event and thanked the WWE Universe before introducing D-Generation X. The crowd erupted with a wave of applause in recognition of WWE’s incredible milestone.
D-Generation X reunited in the ring, embarrassed Damien Sandow
For one night only, the whole band was back together on Raw SuperShow. Triple H and Shawn Michaels soaked in the cheers in the center of the ring, but remarked that “something’s missing.” As they pointed to the ramp, X-Pac, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn made their surprising entrance, fittingly aboard an army jeep. Together again as WWE’s favorite gang of misfits, the five DX members reunited and took a trip down memory lane.
After The Game brought out his signature “Arrrrrre youuuuu rrrrrready” catchphrase and joked about Michaels’ questionable modeling past, DX was interrupted by Damien Sandow, who claimed that Raw and society at large has devolved into common degenerates. DX agreed to humor Sandow at first before HBK drilled him with Sweet Chin Music out of nowhere, followed by The King of Kings planting him into the canvas with a Pedigree. DX then proceeded to further humiliate Sandow by stripping him down to his flamboyant trunks.
