D-Generation X, or DX as they came to be known, was headed by Triple H and Shawn Michaels, two of the biggest Superstars in wrestling history, and had a changing roster of rebels who did whatever they wanted, whenever, wherever -- regardless of the ultimate outcome. First created in 1997 as a means for two friends to work together, the faction rapidly grew so popular with ...more

Ich muss mich mal outen: Ich bin seit über 20 Jahren begeisterter Wrestling Fan und verschlinge jede Wrestlingshow, DVD und Biographie. "The Unauthorized History of DX" ist jedoch eine kleine Enttäuschung gewesen. Normalerweise mag ich die DX (auch Degeneration X genannt), ein Stable, das über mehrere Jahre Teil der WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) war. Bei der DX waren u.a. namenhafte Wrestler wie Sean Waltman, Road Dogg, Triple H, Chyna und Shawn Michaels. Allerdings habe ich in diesem Buch ...more

The moment you hear those words, you know you're in for some fun because DX is coming. A word of warning though, if you're not a wrestling or DX fan you probably won't like this book.

I've been a fan of the WWE back when it was still known as the WWF. I would watch it when I was 3 or 4 years old with my dad. I stopped watching it for a couple of years after Dad died but I started watching it right at the height of the McMahon-Helmsley Era (wrestling fans should know what I'm talking
This was about as good as I expected. Shawn and Hunter's humor wore thin about 50 pages into the book. And I really didn't care for their excuses when it came to some of the controversial things they did in 97/98. Also making fun of "Wrestling purists" seemed like an idiotic idea, and I was even a bit offended by that. The two came across as a couple of immature teens who's parent rarely said no to them. They Swerve in and out of fact and fiction. Making it more annoying than informational. Unle ...more

A great look into one of the most popular factions in WWE. Shawn Michaels and Triple H tell their story the same way they tag teamed; finishing each other's statements before letting one run with it. Highly entertaining.

I absolutely loved this book I got it in the post and read it all that night love dx and loved learning stuff behind the scene totally recommend for any wwe fan and dx fan
As a HUGE DX fan I was really excited to read this. There wasn't one piece of information that was new or exciting to me. Everything has been told somewhere else and just packed into this book.

There were a few lines that I would honestly believe Shawn and HHH said but beyond that it just seemed this book was a repeat of previous information. Also this book tended to be on a loop and a bit unclear about events and such. It jumped around so much it was hard to keep track of anything. The last par

As a huge WWE fan i bought this for Christmas and was very interested in what it would say. Shawn and Hunter wrote it and considering they both already have autobiographies written and published this book would have to be something different. Well it was different but not necessarily in a good way. The book is quite short. Although there are 246 pages these include a quiz, the history of DX through dates and some pages with just the DX logo on them and nothing else. There are also many full-page ...more
Jul 23, 2011 Michele rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
I am a wrestling fan, specifically Shawn Michaels, and I always enjoyed watching the antics of DX, or Degeneration X the pairing of Shawn Michaels and HHH. This was a quick read. A nice look back at the timeline and history of DX. There were a lot of things I had forgotten about and some things I didn't know about. If you are not a fan, you probably won't enjoy it. It is a funny book though, but you really need to "get" their sense of humor to really like the book. Picked this one up via paperba ...more
