• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW/WWF Legend “DDP” Diamond Dallas Page (Real name: Page Joseph Falkinburg) celebrates his 64th birthday today.
Diamond Dallas Page, who was driving his pink cadillac to the ring during Rythm & Blues’ entrance at WWF WrestleMania 6, originally started as a manager in the AWA, PWF (Florida) and by 1991 also in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he managed The Fabulous Freebirds Michael Hayes & Jimmy Garvin.
But Dallas eventually ended up going to WCW’s very own “Power Plant” wrestling school and learned the ropes to become a professional wrestler.
DDP turned into a key figure for WCW in their rivalry against the New World Order, and their TV-ratings-battle against the World Wrestling Federation during the Monday Night War, and even went on to capture the WCW World Heavyweight Championship on 3 occasions.
In 2001, when Vince McMahon bought WCW, Page was among the stars that got signed to a WWF contract right away.
In 2017, the night before WrestleMania 33, he got inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old friend, Eric Bischoff.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DDP!
• Major Spoiler For Tonight’s Night 2 Of WrestleMania 36
As seen on Night 1 of WrestleMania 36, WWE ended things on a high note, with The Undertaker defeating AJ Styles in the main event in their epic Boneyard Match to pick up his record 25th win at WrestleMania.
According to Wrestlingnewsco, Vince McMahon wanted both nights of WrestleMania 36 to end on a positive note:
“Vince McMahon’s idea for both nights is to end on a positive note because, as he has told people backstage, WrestleMania is supposed to be a show that takes fans out of what is going on in the real world for a few hours.”
This means that Drew McIntyre will most likely defeat Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship in the main event of Night 2 of WrestleMania 36.
Below is the match-card for tonight’s show:
– WWE Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Drew McIntyre
– Last Man Standing Match: Edge vs. Randy Orton
