WCW World Champion Rejected SmackDown Return

Speaking on Sirius XM’s “Busted Open Radio,Diamond Dallas Page has opened up about an opportunity that was presented to him by a WWE executive around the time of his departure in 2002.



“When I left [in 2002], I was so burnt out,” Page said on Sirius XM’s “Busted Open Radio.” “Kevin Dunn asked me to go and do a test to be an announcer … They wanted me to do a spot, so I did it. I went up there [to WWE HQ in Stamford, CT] and I did it. Kevin called me back, he goes, ‘I love it. We’re gonna start you, not with SmackDown, we’re gonna start you with the satellite for the first month or two. You get your feet wet, you’ll be on SmackDown. In no time, you’re gonna be on Raw.”

Page, however, told Dunn he wasn’t interested in pursuing the opportunity further.
