The Forgotten DX

D-Generation X mouse pad
World Wrestling Federation (2000)
The WWF had lots of DX merchandise over the years, but this one is a bit odd because it's made up of perhaps the least known incarnation of the faction.

On the far left hand side is Tori, who was only a member of the group for about five months in early 2000.  She was sidelined with an injury after her appearance at King Of The Ring and left DX upon her return.  On the right, you'll see that "Road Dogg" Jesse James stands alone, without his New Age Outlaws tag team partner.  The team split up when "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn was kicked out of DX the day after the No Way Out pay-per-view.  The presence of Tori and absence of Billy Gunn dates this item to sometime between February 28th and June 25th, 2000.

Hologram Cereal Boxes
Ralston Purina (1990)
I wasn't an especially big fan of the way that any of these cereals tasted, but you can't deny that they had some of the coolest boxes in the cereal aisle.
