I posted this over on that other board (is it ok to mention?) but I figure the 'crap is always up for some alternate time line hypothesising, so here we go:
OK so, that DX/Kliq reunion on NXT got me thinking:
Firstly I started thinking; aw....it's sad that when Shawn says he has experience in tag teams the crowd start chanting for HHH instead of Jannetty. Then I thought how cool (and surreal) it would be to see him out there with that group.
Then I remembered vaguely wanting Marty to be in DX years ago.
Then........it came to me..........what if........in some alternate universe Janetty was the one who started DX?
Who would be in it?
I pretty much ended up replacing everyone with their partner or someone they had a feud with prior to joining or something like that.
So Marty is the Shawn. Golddust is the Triple H? Mero maybe? Bart Gunn instead of Billy. Uh....Jarrett instead of Road Dogg and Scott Hall instead of X-Pac, cause why not?
So: Janetty, Golddust/Mero, Bart Gunn, Jeff Jarrett and Scott Hall.
hmmm.....that ain't no DX....maybe their name is XD, either way, I don't think they're lighting the world on fire
Bret Hart and HBK left for WCW and started the NWO with British Bulldog Hall, Nash and Hogan start DX
Spike Dudley is black

In my alternate universe, Vader goes over at Summerslam 1996 and he joins forces with Stone Cold Steve Austin, and the duo breaks every rule in the book, as Jim Cornette laughs in the background.
Meanwhile, Shawn goes straight to WCW and boots Hogan from the NWO, turning the NWO into DX. However, the name never becomes a reality, as the crotch chopping and shit's all there already.
Back in the WWF, Triple H jumps ship just as the WWF totally fucking tanks. While the NWO is edgy and cool, Vader and Austin's edginess is stifled by Cornette's old school mindframe. While both sides are right, the clash alone is enough to kill the angle, and with it the promotion.
