It's time for split of DX
By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun


Now, I love D-Generation X as much as anyone. The whole "we've got two words for ya," and the crotch chop have become a staple of WWE's Monday night programming.

But there's going to come a time soon when WWE needs to split DX -- take Shawn Michaels and Triple H and put them on opposite sides. It's a feud that if teased over time would sell tickets.

The obvious would be to turn Triple H into the heel. Been there, done that. With sledgehammer in hand, Triple H is devious, a guy fans once loved to hate.

But while it's riskier, I would turn Michaels into the heel. It's a turn WWE has teased in recent times, but never followed through on. To kickstart a feud between the two, maybe a former DX member could be brought in. How about Sean Waltman (X-Pac)?

Now that's a Crazy Train

What a sight ... Chris Masters flexing and popping his muscles in sync with Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train on RAW. If WWE wants to keep Masters around as a modern-day Paul Orndorff, he needs a more meaningful role.

Invented MMA?

The Wrestling Globe newsletter is reporting Verne Gagne's son Greg claimed in a radio interview he and his dad invented mixed martial arts, pitching the concept during a 1992 U.S. wrestling conference. Gagne says Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell were in the audience and took the idea to Dana White. Huh?

Wrestling wrap

Ricky Hatton will host RAW from Sheffield, England on Monday ... Candice Michelle is pregnant and due in May ... WWE Hall-of-Fame announcer Jim Ross is still sidelined after another Bell's Palsy attack. MS has been ruled out. Ross is a star among stars. This columnist wishes him all the best in returning to health and to our TV sets.
