There will always be a certain section of the WWE Universe that wants to see a return of the more Attitude Era style of wrestling, along with those styles of gimmicks like the New World Order and D-Generation X.

Earlier this week, Roman Reigns said during an interview that we no longer need superstars running round in the wrestling business like former stables nWo and D-X, and many saw this as him taking a shot at independent wrestling circuit stars The Young Bucks and their 'Too Sweet' gesture.

Reigns said: "No offense to any of these guys, but we don't need guys running around doing 'too sweets.' We don't need guys acting like they're DX from 20 years ago. We need original characters, guys who are [themselves]."

In the days after The Big Dog had said this, a fan tweeted at him with what he said in the interview, alongside a post by WWE of current superstars Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Bayley performing DX gestures in celebration of the stable's 20th anniversary.

Reigns responded to the fan's claims, putting them in their place.

He said: "Me and my boys beat the DX! No need to celebrate them. #TheRealestGeneration is what I celebrate and represent."

The Big Dog could be referring to the time which he himself defeated Triple H, DX's former leader, at WrestleMania 32 for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

He also could be referred to when The Shield defeated Kane and The New Age Outlaws, who are two former DX members, at WrestleMania 30.

The Shield vs DX would be a match that every WWE fan would like to see, but it's probably not going to happen anytime soon with Triple H, Road Dogg, and Shawn Michaels having more backstage roles in WWE, as well as the fact Billy Gunn is no longer with the WWE.
