The WWE had a ton of factions back then as well competing against one another, so it was futile to compare sheer revenue against the nWo brand. Hell, I own 4 nWo shirts and a ton of other crap.
DX was the 3rd biggest reason maybe for WWF taking over WCW. Stone Cold was the guy who really did it. The only wrestler I can remember that got bigger oviations than Hogan or The Rock. When I think of 1998, I think of Stone Cold Steve Austin. DX brought ratings, but by that time The Rock was gaining some serious heat. Even when he was a heel, people couldn't get enough of the guy. Maybe the best ever on the mic.
