D-Generation X (also known DX) is a professional wrestling stable (and later tag team) best known for their appearances in the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment/WWE). The group originated in the midst of the WWF's "Attitude Era" in 1997 as a foil to another prominent faction, The Hart Foundation.
After its original run with members Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, and Rick Rude the group expanded to become a mainstay of the Attitude Era with new additions, X-Pac, The New Age Outlaws, Tori, and Kane until it disbanded in August 2000. After a teased reunion in 2002, DX reformed in June 2006 as the duo of Triple H and Shawn Michaels for the remainder of the year and again in August 2009 until March 2010, shortly before Michaels' retirement. This incarnation was voted the greatest WWE Tag Team Champions of all time in a 2013 WWE viewer poll.
