WWF D-Generation X DX Wiseguyz figures pack Wiseguys Wise Guys 1

In the late 90’s at the height of D-Generation X’s popularity, they decided to release the DX Wiseguyz– a set of figures featuring Triple H, The New Age Outlaws, and X-Pac dressed up as as 1930’s gangsters.

They even put them on the cover of WWF Magazine in suits!

Um… Why?

I mean DX was cool.

Gangsters are always cool.

And I guess they’re both “degenerates” (sorta) but are the kids who were buying the figures supposed to care about 1930’s gangsters?

    I actually received these as a gift when I was a kid… they were alright, I think they were aimed more toward the “collector” type of children that aren’t exactly in school anymore though

    I feel like this concept would have worked well with Evolution and especially the 1988 version of The Four Horsemen.

    Thank you for posting this. I was fifteen when this issue arrived in my mailbox. A short time after, I read that there would be figures of DX in gangster suits. I’ve always had the understanding that the figures were created based on the popularity of the magazine cover. Anyway, I never even saw these figures until this article. Thanks for clearing up a mystery.

    So that could make CM Punk an unofficial member of DX, since he dressed up like a gangster for Wrestlemania 22.

  5. AK says:

    Figures do not come with hats and cigars as illustrated.

    And it was at that moment that WCW Magazine automatically stopped being published. Oh sorry, wrong revisionist history involving DX. You do know them driving a tank outside WCW shows singlehandedly shifted the balance of the Monday Night Wars right? I know WWE doesn’t like to bring it up that often.
