DDP does not hold back at all when it comes to his run-ins with other wrestlers or anyone else that he says on his day to day schedule. Recently, he spoke up about Logan Paul.
Logan Paul has always had a very split perception of him. On one side, many feel that he does not deserve his platform and on the other side, many tune in weekly to see what he is doing next.
On the latest DDP Snake Pit podcast, Diamond Dallas Page and Conrad Thompson discussed some of the creative changes in WWE. DDP also covered some other topics, including what led to Enzo Amore’s WWE release.
DDP talked about meeting Logan Paul:
“We were in the elevator and I could tell that he wasn’t a fan from being a kid. He shook my hand and I said, ‘Let’s do a picture.’ I said, ‘Let’s do the diamond cutter (hand sign)’, and he said, ‘No, I don’t do that.’ The only other person to say no to me doing the diamond cutter was Val Kilmer, but every single other person has done it with me.”
At this point, it’s obvious that DDP was not feeling this encounter, but Logan tried to clear it up with the former WCW champion.
He continues: “He said, ‘It’s a gang sign. I got sued over that.’ I understood him because a guy like him is in such a position, I mean, he’s up there. Last thing he needs is wrestling, but it’s another thing that brings him into the mainstream again, doing something else that’s a spectacle. We have a humongous audience. But he wouldn’t do anything because, a gang sign, and he’s been sued over it before. I said, ‘Don’t worry about it’, so we took the picture.”
DDP is right down the middle in how he feels.
