• 2 WWE Hall Of Famers Are Starting A Podcast Together
During a new interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page announced that he will soon be teaming up with fellow Hall Of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts to start a brand new weekly podcast.
The host of that podcast will be Ric Flair’s son-in-law Conrad Thompson, who already does weekly podcasts with Bruce Prichard, Eric Bischoff, Tony Schiavone, Jim Ross, Arn Anderson, Kurt Angle & Jeff Jarrett, so his weekly schedule seems to be pretty busy already, to say the least.
The name of the podcast is DDP Snakepit, and it will launch on January 4, 2022, on the new Podcast Heat network.
Here’s what DDP had to say:
“Me and Jake have so many years together and memories and stories, and we think people are going to get a lot out of this. Now, initially, I didn’t want to do a podcast. There are just so many out there.
Then Jake said to me, ‘I know you won’t do one. But do one with me.’ I said I’d do it on one condition, and that’s if we got Conrad Thompson. He’s built something special, and I really respect him for it.
So since Connie’s in, we’re going to do it.”
DDP then talked about his relationship with Jake:
“Jake was my mentor when I was nothing. When I was coming up, Jake was there for me. He was such a huge star, and I was looking for my break. Then I remember back in 1997, when I got a phone call from him during my run in WCW, and I’ll always remember what he said. ‘Congratulations,’ he said. ‘For what?’ I asked him. And he said, ‘For reinventing the DDT.’
Imagine having your mentor congratulate you on reinventing the move of the ’80s? We’ve always been there for each other, and now we get to share a different side of what we’ve been through together on the podcast.”
DDP already has some topics in his mind for the podcast:
“We’ll go deep into why I helped Jake, which led to the Resurrection of Jake the Snake film. People are going to learn a lot of new info here. We’ll talk about wrestling, and we’re going to be reviewing (the Starz series) Heels, which is a fascinating show.
I read the original script, and I wanted that Wild Bill character real bad. Now, the guy they got [Chris Bauer] is great. He’s f**king Wild Bill. Those motherf**kers on that show were incredible, and we’re going to talk a lot about that, too.
People are going to be entertained and get new pieces of knowledge every episode. You’ll get insight on how we really think. We’re going to look at a different side of wrestling, and something really special is going to happen when we’re together on the show.”
