The 30th Anniversary edition of WWE Raw was full of action, surprises, and returning superstars.
One notable segment saw the reunion of D-Generation X, although they were down one member in Billy Gunn, who is now part of the AEW roster. Instead, Triple H, Road Dogg, X-Pac, and Shawn Michaels were joined by Kurt Angle who admitted he “always wanted to be a member of DX”.
Before Triple H was able to finish his “Let’s get ready to suck it!” catchphrase, the group was interrupted by Imperium. The group made their way to the ring to confront the Hall of Famers, imaginatively calling them a “bunch of degenerates”.
The Game then went face-to-face with Gunther before backing down, saying he’s retired. Meanwhile, Michaels was too old and X-Pac claimed to have a bad case of shin splints. Kurt Angle flat-out refused the opportunity.
Since DX weren’t willing tot ake the fight to Imperium, Seth Rollins’ music hit and he led the Street Profits out. Teddy Long then made an appearance to make the Six-Man Tag Team match official with Angle as the guest referee.
The highlight of the bout for many was Seth Rollins coming face-to-face with Gunther. The Intercontinental Champion got the best of their first exchange, dropping Rollins with a Powerbomb for two, but Rollins rallied with a Superkick. Later in the match, Rollins was able to land a Pedigree on Gunther before getting the pinfall on Giovanni Vinci with a Stomp.
Seth Rollins wants to face Gunther again
After Raw ended, Gunther took to Twitter to share pictures of him facing off with Triple H, Rollins, and Angle during the show. Rollins responded to tell him to “run it again”.
“Run it back beeeeyotch”

Before a match between the pair can take place, both men have already declared themselves for the Royal Rumble on January 28th. Whether they face off again during the 30-man match remains to be seen.
