D-Lo Brown is one of the more active veterans from WWE, but he is no longer with them. While still being signed to IMPACT Wrestling as a commentator as well as a producer, he is still recognized for his WWE days.
Brown recently appeared on an interview with Chris Van Vliet. He talked about a D-Generation X parody of the Nation of Domination back in 1998. It was pulled from WWE Network last year for X-Pac parodying Mark Henry while wearing blackface, as per the belief of many fans.
The former WWE superstar said that it wasn’t something they were concerned with back in the day. However, he added that in retrospect, they would have omitted the detail of the blackface.
There have been a lot of stories out there. I can tell you that none of us had any real concerns about it. In retrospect, we could have done that segment without the blackface, and I wish we had. It would have been just as good. Obviously I wished we changed that and we didn’t.
Since WWE moved their programming to Peacock, that content has hit the cutting room floor.
Brown said that he’s not fond of the promo, though it was the way for everyone to start a heated feud back in 1998. He added that while most of the time the professional wrestlers focused on the feuds, they ended up overlooking the most obvious problem with how these promos were designed.
