DDP talks about denying Ric Flair match
During his interview on “The Sessions with Renee Paquette,” Diamond Dallas Page said that Ric Flair wanted him to be in his final match:
“Ric Flair actually called me and asked me if I would be in the match with him and do a six-man. At first he said, ‘How old are you?’ I said, ‘66.’ He said, ‘I’ve seen you. You’re in great shape. I really would love to have you in this match.’ I said, ‘Ric, I can’t do it. I feel so good. I can’t take a chance of hurting myself.’ He said, ‘I feel great.’ I said, ‘You’re not from this planet.’ That’s when he talked me into doing the roast.”
Page also recently said on his own podcast that Conrad Thompson offered him one last match and he turned it down because he was happy with the match he had on an episode of Dynamite a couple of years ago.
