D-Generation X has another new member, and this time it’s beloved mascot Chuck E. Cheese!
On the January 23rd episode of WWE Raw, D-Generation X made their way to the ring as part of celebrating the red brand’s 30th anniversary as it debuted in January of 1993. Triple H, Shawn Michaels, X-Pac, and Road Dogg were all in attendance, while Billy Gunn was absent due to being signed to All Elite Wrestling.
However, fans noticed that one more man was alongside the popular faction: Kurt Angle. Despite never having been part of the group, Angle took part in DX’s signature taunts and catchphrases, looking delighted the whole time.
One fan who noticed how much fun Angle was having was beloved children’s mascot Chuck E. Cheese. With Munch’s Make Believe Band taking up less of his time these days, Charles reached out to Road Dogg on social media to ask if he could follow in Angle’s footsteps and join DX himself. Road Dogg first joked about the mouse’s age, but as DX made clear on WWE Raw, they’re all old men now, so Road Dogg said the mascot was in!
Charles, at your age….. awe, who am I kidding… YOU’RE IN!! #DXARMY#OUDKhttps://t.co/fZ8Wrgc7Fo

“I’ll Remember This Forever” – Chuck E. Cheese’s D-Generation X Teammate Kurt Angle On His WWE Raw Experience
Speaking on Raw Talk following the anniversary celebration, Kurt Angle said that being an honorary member of the WWE Hall of Fame faction was the “coolest thing in the world,” and also spoke highly of getting the chance to serve as special guest referee on the show.
“I had a lot of fun. Being able to hang out with DX, being able an honorary member was the coolest thing in the world. My whole entire career, I’ve been kind of the nerd and the dork. To go out there with those guys was really cool. I had such a blast. Being able to ref the match, it was a lot of fun tonight. The Raw 30th [anniversary show], I’ll remember this forever.” (h/t Fightful)
