X-Pac Was Unsure About Wearing Blackface In D-Generation X Parody

Some things don’t age well, or were never really that great in the first place.

Sean Waltman on his podcast 1,2,360 recently talked about the infamous skit where D-Generation X parodied The Nation, with all of DX impersonating all the members. When bringing up the topic about him wearing blackface to impersonate Mark Henry, X-Pac said that he had reservations about doing something like that.

"I wish I could say I was forced, but I mean, I protested" Waltman said regarding the decision to go forward with wearing the paint. "I've had people on both sides of that tell me, 'Oh no it's OK'. I'm going with them, I wish I hadn't done it almost. Ya know? I mean some people thought it was great and whatever that's fine, but I just didn't know."

While the skit is relatively infamous in wrestling circles, WWE has never posted the video on their YouTube page, probably for these reasons.

X-Pac would go on to have a successful career in WWE, winning a number of titles in the promotion before leaving in 2002. Since then, he’s relatively focused himself as an independent wrestler, though has appeared from time to time on WWE TV in recent years.
