D'Lo Brown Wishes D-Generation X Hadn't Used Blackface During Nation Of Domination Parody

D'Lo Brown was recently a guest on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, where he was asked if there was any concern about D-Generation X using blackface during their now-iconic parody of The Nation of Domination.

"No. There have been a lot of stories out there. I can tell you that none of us had any big concern about it. In retrospect, we could have done that segment without the blackface and I wish we hadn't. It would have been just as good. Obviously, I wish we changed that. We didn't. Looking back with 2022 eyes, not a fan. In 1997-98 eyes, it was a way of getting these two factions to war because we knew both of our factions were over enough, or connected with the fans enough that we could go out there and draw money and fill houses with it and put up ratings on TV. We look at the individual matchups we could have and that's what piqued our curiosity. People look past the obvious elephant in the room."

D'Lo added:

"You couldn't pitch that idea three years later. You'd get laughed out of the building three years later."

And his final thoughts:

"It's so true. If there was never any blackface, you would have never known the difference and it would have been just as entertaining. That whole segment was DX entertaining everybody and they could have done that easy without the blackface. I get people looking at it with 2022 eyes going, 'were you mad, were you angry?' Today I am but in 97-98, I wasn't. We were just trying to create a good segment. It was a different time. Thankfully, we don't live in that time anymore and we're here today. I wish we could go back and retro book it and have it a different way," he said.
