Sean Waltman, a.k.a. X-Pac, was one of the more underrated talents to work in WWE and WCW during The Monday Night Wars as a member of DX and the nWo. Even though he never reached the heights of singles success like his Kilq buddies, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall, he was great to work with. That being said, sometimes cooperating with the opponent can be difficult.

While speaking with Wrestling Then And Now, Waltman was asked about his memories of working with Shane McMahon in WWE. The pair competed against each other nine times, and they even had a match a WrestleMania XV. Waltman said he loved working with Shane and said that he saw how much focus was on the matches after the fact.

“It was good. It wasn’t easy work, but he was great to work with. He was just all — there was a lot of energy there but he had a lot of ideas, a lot of really good ideas. So I loved working with him; plus there was a lot of attention on that match, any of those matches with him, more than I realized at the time. I was much more grateful for them later on.”

Earlier this year, Waltman returned to pro wrestling by teaming with Joey Janela for a win over The Major Players, Brian Myers and Matt Cardona, at GCW Welcome To Heartbreak in February. Sean also competed at Joey Janela’s Spring Break 6, losing a grudge match to Janela. After the match, the two-time WWE Hall of Famer revealed he suffered a torn bicep in the tag match, and had surgery to fix the injury.

As far as Shane McMahon is concerned, he is not expected back in WWE anytime soon. Earlier this year, Shane had an appearance during the Men’s Royal Rumble that ended in disaster on screen and offscreen.
