During a recent interview with Bill Apter, former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Diamond Dallas Page noted that he would consider returning to WWE if he can work an angle with Randy Orton.
DDP said that he wants to work “RKO vs. Diamond Cutter” angle with the 12 time WWE World Champion, Randy Orton.
DDP noted that the last time he delivered a Diamond Cutter was at Royal Rumble 2015, and that was supposed to be for Randy Orton, but DDP is glad that didn’t happen. DDP says he would have loved to feud with Randy Orton 10 years back, when Orton was the “Legend Killer”. In another interview with Sports Illustrated, DDP gave the following update on Jake Roberts & Scott Hall’s health:
“Jake is almost two years sober. Now, when you speak with him, you can have a really intelligent conversation with a really smart guy. But there were times when this really beat me up. That first year when Jake was sober, he messed up maybe six times. He went cold turkey from booze, pills, and crack, but he needed to go completely sober.
Scott fell after the movie. But even when the cameras aren’t rolling, we’re still going. So let’s focus on the story you keep telling yourself. I call it ‘self-talk,’ like you talk to yourself. Nobody can pull you down more than you. No one one can f— you up more than you. The positive side is nobody can pick you up more than you, but you just need to learn how to do it. So that was my goal with Jake and Scott. Teach them how to help themselves. They’d say, ‘I’m worthless, I’m a piece of s—, I f—– up again,’ and if you keep telling yourself that, then you’re screwed. If you say you can or you say you can’t, you’re right.”
