Diamond Dallas Page on How He Helped Jericho Return, Feud with Orton

– In a new interview with the Fight Club show from Chicago, former World Heavyweight Champion Diamond Dallas Page talks about Chris Jericho using his DDP Yoga to prepare for his WWE return. DDP said:

“Jericho gave a testimony saying DDP Yoga changed my life after one of our workouts. It was powerful for me for him to do that. They (doctors) said Chris Jericho had a herniated L4 and he was done and he came back with my workout. He texted me last night and said Santino (Marella) wants to do your workout. He said, ‘I’m gonna get the whole locker room to do it.”

“He (Jericho) did not think he was going to be able to come back. Within two weeks (after starting DDP Yoga) he was already feeling, ‘wait a minute, I think I’m gonna be able to do this,’ and then five weeks, that’s when he put that testimonial that changed my life and I’m virtually pain free. Today, he’s completely pain free.”

DDP also said he recently signed a WWE Legends deal and while he doesn’t see himself doing anything in the ring, the only person he would think about working with is Randy Orton so they could play off the Diamond Cutter vs. RKO angle.

    DDP should teach Randy Oilton how to wrestle first.

  • rko

    DDP not a good wrestler? That guy put on 5 star matches with the likes of benoit and raven when feuding for the us title in wcw. I would love to see him in a feud with orton over the cutter/rko move. They both play good heels. I’m betting ddp is the heel because he can come back and say he was buried and disrespected and had his finishing move stolen and taken without his permission by a young punk kid orton. This feud has good roots. They just need to make it interesting.

    There’s a reason they call him “DD-ME”.

    I never had the luck to see DDP on his prime. I only got the chance to see him on WWF, and to be honest, i really liked hes style. There is something to me that not many guys have, and that is naturality and smoothness in the ring, and DDP had them both. As Devil_Rising said, maybe he didnt have many moves, but those he had came perfect everytime. To me very few guys have that, the likes of Bret and Owen hart, Kurt Angle, Eddie Guerreo, and i dont know, just a few more, but DDP was or is on that group. I know everyone is entitled to their oppinion, and you may not like him, but saying he sucks, thats a different thing.

    P.S. @ Nicholas

    Dude, Taker didn’t bury DDP. WWF did. Taker doesn’t write the overall stories or tell people what he wants to do. Not 100%. The guy ain’t HHH. He has stroke, sure. But he doesn’t bury guys. The crappy storyline called for Taker to beat up the creepy, cowardly stalker that was stalking his wife. He did that. It was a shitty story, but Taker didn’t write it. And quite frankly, word was at the time that Taker wasn’t very happy with that whole storyline anyway.

    What the fuck is some people’s problem? Seriously. DDP is one of the biggest stars in wrestling history, because he was one of the most POPULAR stars in wrestling history. Period.

    The Monday Night Wars era was the most widely watched era of wrestling history, good or ill. DDP was one of THE TOP STARS of WCW, a company that beat WWF in the ratings for 2 years. He was one of the top merchandise sellers for WCW. Fans loved him, even when he turned heel they still cheered him. Why do you think he got such a big reaction when he came to WWF, even though he was a heel? The only reason he started getting booed, was because the whole “stalking Sara” thing was really lame.

    Diamond Dallas Page was never a very good wrestler? Define good wrestler. Do you mean he couldn’t do triple back flips and wasn’t the best mat technician on earth? Some “Smarks” really don’t know the business like they pretend so hard to. DDP was a great WORKER, he could keep the crowd in the palm of his hand. He worked with greats like Ric Flair, Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Booker T, Goldberg, etc. He was a 3 time World Champion in one of the top 2 biggest wrestling companies on earth. And quite frankly, his move set was awesome. He didn’t need to have a million moves, all that mattered was that the moves he DID use, always looked crisp and believable, which the did.

    And at the end of the day, I’d rather watch DDP wrestle in his classic matches, than Randy Orton, who is a “far better wrestler”. The Diamond Cutter was way sicker than the RKO, and a lot of that had to do with DDP himself, how he presented the move, how he executed it, etc. When Randy pulls out an RKO, most people just go “well, here he goes again.”. When DDP would hit the Diamond cutter, or even motion for it, people would go nuts. He built that move up big time, people believed that he could hit it from anywhere, and that when he hit it, the other guy wasn’t getting up. THAT, is all that matters.

    DDP is awesome, haters, and you are not. That’s not a bad thing…..THAT’S….a good thing!

    For myself who was a big WCW fan this guy DDP was one of Monday Nitro best workers. This is one of the only few beef I have with the Undertaker he buried this guy and never got the reason why. He sqaush one of WCW top perfomer for no good reason to me. As for ddp and Randy Orton to me that is to much of nothing.

    I believe DDP was one of WCW very best on Monday Nitro he will be in the Hall of Fame.

  • venom

    I just don’t see a DDP vs Orton feud happening. Didn’t WWE bury DDP before he retired.

  • Pig

    DDP never was a very good wrestler. He played a good heel manager and had a smoking hot wife….for awhile.

    Seems like he is hugging WWE just for one last hurrah.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble perhaps? I know he said he wouldn’t do anything in the ring but we all know how well wrestlers tell the truth.

  • bc mitchell

    Is it me or does it seem like DDP takes full or at least partial credit for a lot of shit. If they ever cure cancer I’m pretty sure it’ll be because of his yoga plan

  • Sean Mooney

    I had no idea Jericho had a herniated L4…

  • the fued with randy would be pretty good i think
