On tonight's special 30th-anniversary celebrations episode of Monday Night RAW, the popular faction DX reunited alongside Kurt Angle. The wrestling world had mixed feelings about the Olympic Gold Medalist replacing Billy Gunn.

One of the major highlights of tonight's episode of RAW was the DX reunion. Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Road Dogg Jessie James, and X-Pac Sean Waltman came out. But to the fans' surprise, in place of Billy Gunn was WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle. Gunn, who is currently with AEW, has not featured in any of DX's recent segments.

Let's just cut to the chase, why is @RealKurtAngle out here with D-Generation X at #RAWXXX?! 👀 https://t.co/53ctRMU0gt

Fans recalled the time when the Olympic Gold Medalist became an honorary member of the SHIELD when Roman Reigns was unable to compete.

Some were unhappy to see Angle in the segment and felt that he looked totally lost in the segment.

Kurt Angle looked lost with DX. Did he miss his cue?! #RawXXX
@PhillyThe13th @WWE Kurt Angle out there like a stooge, unable to even do the DX chop...
@51Thereckoning @WWE Angle looks awful.
Kurt Angle filling in for Billy Gunn as member of DX was not on my 2023 bingo card #RAWis30 #RAWXXX
Either their camera work is great or my eye sight is terrible. I genuinely thought Kurt Angle was Billy Gunn during DXs entrance #rawxxx

Halfway through the segment, Imperium interrupted and challenged the retired wrestlers to a match. DX and Kurt Angle backed out of the fight and former Tag Team Champions The Street Profits and former WWE Champion Seth Rollins answered the challenge and Kurt Angle was the special referee.

After a hard-fought battle, Rollins and The Street Profits won the match.
