Episode Seven covers the origins of the ill-fated Chyna/Henry relationship. Hunter is stripped of the IC belt as DX are just trying to get by without their injured leader. We have a new commissioner, a sheriff if you will. Along with that, we have to question the allegiance of the New Age Outlaws who seem to have had their heads turned by the money of the Corporation - who are parodied by DX in the lesser remembered classic parodies in 1998, perhaps because the word "sphincter" is...

Welcome to Part Two in the History of D-Generation X. We pick up where we left off in October of 1997, with our favourite degenerates ripping off a WCW jobbers gimmick.. What could that be? We quickly move in to a highly uncomfortable segments of sexism, racism and any other "ism" to make you cringe. The formation of the New Age Outlaws, the Montreal Screwjob, Sgt.
