Diamond Dallas Page Talks About Helping Chris Jericho

In a recent interview with TheSportsVision, former 3 time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Diamond Dallas Page talked about Jake Roberts, his wrestling career, helping Chris Jericho get back to the ring for WrestleMania 28 and more. Below are a few highlights:

On WWE Hall Of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts:

“Jake was the greatest. I think A-Z, Ric Flair you got to put up there, Shawn Michaels may be the greatest ever as far as all the technical and everything together, but to me Jake was the guy. Because just the way he did everything, from his promos to his work in the ring, I mean everything he did out there meant something.”

On Starting His Career In His 30s:

“They didn’t believe in me. It’s understandable how they wouldn’t believe in me when I came back from my rotator cuff at 37, 38. But they really didn’t understand my work ethic. They didn’t really realize that I was gonna be one of the best in the business until I was. It was really good that they held me down the way they did, because if it was given too early I never would’ve been able to do and have the matches that I had. It never would’ve happened.”

On Helping Chris Jericho For His WWE Return In 2011:

“Jericho, four years ago, blew his back out. He was done. I sent him the video of the disabled vet, Arthur Boorman, he called me back five minutes later and he said, ‘You tell me what to do and I’ll do it.’ And that’s how Chris Jericho’s journey towards getting back in the ring started. Five weeks later of doing DDP Yoga, he was 85% pain free, he called me up, he was like, ‘Dude I’m addicted to this’… Three months later after doing the program, he was 100% pain free and headlined with Punk at WrestleMania.”
