X-Pac was one of the most excited and charismatic superstars in the history of WWE during the Attitude Era. Despite being a cruiserweight, X-Pac was known to battle against the biggest of opponents and capture the audience’s attention with his amazing energy and crotch chops. However, the former DX member recently revealed that he was not in proper shape to be a part of the Royal Rumble match.

X-Pac first entered WWE around 1993 under the ring name 1-2-3 Kid. He made his in-ring debut at the WWE SummerSlam of that year, losing to Mike Rotunda in a one-on-one encounter. Obviously, he would go on to have many more matches.

The former WWE tag team champion stayed with the company until 1995, making a switch to their rival competitor, WCW. X-Pac would then align himself with the nWo and continued to stay in the promotion right before the onset of WWE’s Attitude Era.

After Shawn Michaels retired from WWE and Triple H took over the reins of D-Generation X, he first added X-Pac to the faction on the RAW after WrestleMania 14. This was followed by Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, and they came to be known as the second incarnation of the notorious group.


Nowadays, X-Pac is enjoying his retirement while still making sporadic appearances on WWE television programming. He recently posted on Twitter that many fans wanted to see him compete in the upcoming Royal Rumble match this weekend, however, X-Pac revealed that he was in no shape to get in the ring and won’t be appearing in the match.

“For the last 8 months, I’ve been enjoying life & eating whatever the f— I want. In other words, there’s no chance of me being in the Rumble. But I really appreciate those of you who have expressed their desire to see me appear. 🙏.”

X-Pac was recently seen at the RAW is XXX episode last week, alongside his D-Generation X team members. It seems he has left the in-ring competition in the rearview and only enjoys appearing on television programming as a legend.
