• “He shot himself in the foot” – 2017 WWE Hall Of Famer On CM Punk

WCW Legend Diamond Dallas Page was recently interviewed on the Battleground podcast, where he spoke about Tony Khan, CM Punk and the infamous backstage brawl after the AEW All Out 2002 pay-per-view.

Here’s what DDP had to say:

“Tony Khan and I got pretty close after I helped Cody at All In, and he’s a really good dude. I felt bad for him when Punk was going through his rant. But you know, Punk, that’s what he does. He says what’s on his mind and it’s really worked out for him a lot of times.

This time, I kinda think he shot himself in the foot a little bit but he’ll get through it. He’ll be fine. I’m sure he’s making stupid money right now, and that’s kinda like F U money for that spot. But again, I don’t really know Punk that well.

By his actions, he’s the kind of guy who wears his heart on his sleeve obviously, but what you see is what you get. He’s not gonna candy coat anything, although he probably could a little bit.

He’s gonna be himself and he’s gonna be true to himself and I don’t think it got him fired or anything. I think he’ll get a suspension along with the rest of the boys and hopefully they’ll come back with a different attitude when it comes to like the company is paying everybody.

I’ve always said that the stories in the back are way more intense then the stories outside. What the fans get to see and what really happens, there’s just so much. Rome with backstabbing has nothing on professional wrestling.”

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 31st 2017.
