DDP Discusses WWE’s New WCW Nitro DVD, Arquette & the World Title, Sting, More

– Former World Heavyweight Champion Diamond Dallas Page spoke with WWE’s website this week to promote the new “Very Best of WCW Nitro” DVD set that comes out today. Here are some highlights:

Working on the DVD:
“I worked closely with the producers on what I wanted to say. The last thing I wanted was to sound like a robot introducing the matches. Being involved and having the freedom to really speak from the heart adds an extra layer to this collection.”

Capturing the WCW feel:
“One thing The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro really captures, which I remember very well about WCW, was how absolutely electric the crowds were. It was a wild time and everything, both on Nitro and Raw, was smoking hot. The fans were crazy, and that’s what helped make WCW and WWE so successful. I loved when Scott Hall and Kevin Nash first started showing up. No one knew what they were up to, and this DVD really recreates that feeling as The Outsiders did whatever they wanted and started to destroy everyone in their path.”

His World Title match with Sting that’s on the DVD:
“Even though I lost the World Title, that was one of my toughest and favorite matches. The way that match ended … man, it was exciting and so unpredictable. Fans of all ages will love that match.”

David Arquette winning the World Title:
“I couldn’t believe it; I thought it was some kind of joke. What many people don’t know is that when David signed up to compete, he didn’t do it for the money. All the money he made during his run in WCW, he donated to Brian Pillman’s wife.”

    Just watching DISC 2, i got my copy yesterday as well. Disappointed that the not one Nitro incident involving the DDP/Savage feud was highlighted 🙁

    Other then that, been a sweet set. Hopefully this sells good, and they release a volume 2.

    DDP is a great guy. Too bad his cousin was a little weird. She cheated on me with her brother, but that’s a whole other story.

    This DVD is awesome, upset that Sting joining the wolfpac isnt on here but Im loving looking back on the company of “Where the Big boys play”. Hoping they do a volume 2
