• Former WCW Champion Doesn’t Hold A Grudge Against Vince McMahon
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘DDP Snake Pit’ podcast, legendary WCW/WWF Wrestler Diamond Dallas Page spoke about WWE’s recent change of power, after Vince McMahon retired from all of his positions due to the ongoing hush money scandal, and Triple H took over creative, while Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan became Co-CEOs.
Here’s what DDP had to say about the situation:
“Personally, I think Vince had a good run, Even though he didn’t really do anything good with me, that was never to me personally. It was WCW. They were gonna crush anybody who was the top guy to come in from WCW to make a point.
I really enjoy doing the things I do with WWE. I’m back there again and doing stuff again with them. Paul [Levesque] is the guy, but don’t think that Stephanie [McMahon] is not. That is one of the smartest people in the business and I’m sure they talk about stuff all the time because that’s the element of the couple that they are.
I did the battle royal and they gave me the entrance and I’m 61 years old at the time. I just walked up to both of them and gave them a big hug and thanked them for letting me go out there and just have a little fun dropping some Cutters and getting thrown over the top rope and getting a nice payday.”
After WCW was sold to Vince McMahon in March 2001, Diamond Dallas Page joined the World Wrestling Federation and wrestled for them until he (temporarily) retired from professional wrestling in 2002.
DDP continued to appear on WWE TV every now and then and was eventually inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on March 31, 2017.
