• DDP Talks About Helping Justin Credible After Recent Incident
During a recent interview with CBS Denver, WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page talked about helping ECW Veteran Justin Credible after he appeared drunk at a wrestling event recently and caused a scene.
Below is what the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion had to say about this:
“I didn’t get a phone call from him, I made a phone call to him. Because of helping Jake, and Scott, Vader, and Mick Foley … just by reaching out and helping the guys, when someone is hurting, they’ll contact me. So I know about it pretty much right away. I always loved PJ. He’s a great kid who just made some bad decisions.
WWE has really stepped up. A lot of people like to bust chops on the company, and they really don’t know all of the stuff that they do for the boys. Like, if someone’s got issues, whether it’s booze, or pills, or pain, or whatever it is, they’re going to get them some help.
So, they arranged for his rehab and he had been putting the work in, but he needed a couple of other things. I literally talked to him this morning. He’s on Twitter, we DM each other, I was like, “dude, give me a call.” We talked for about 20 minutes. One of the things I said about Jake, when I inducted him in the Hall of Fame, is that you can never underestimate the power you give someone by believing in them.
Sometimes it takes someone that they really look up to. PJ and I have always had that relationship where I know he’s looked up to me. He knows if I say I’m going to do something, I do it. There’s no b-s’ing around. If I’m going to work with someone, I expect you to put the work in. Then, if I put the work in to help you, you feel like, “I don’t want to let him down.”
My first message back to him is don’t worry about me. Once you know that, you actually, and really do care, not just call once, I’ve talked to PJ every day. We’ve texted a couple times a day. I started him on the program and told him there’s light at the end of this tunnel.
I told him that, when he did the program, he got unbelievable results and got in great shape. But now he’s in lousy shape again. So, I said, “let’s just journey it, bro. Let’s document it. Let’s let people know what you’re doing.” It’s my thing, I said you should go out there, because everybody’s talking, and they’ve seen the video of you being a mess.
Go make another video and say whatever you feel. I didn’t tell him to apologize. I told him to say what he feels, and today’s day one. He did it, and he got a really great response. Ninety-nine percent of it was an amazing response, and you focus on the positives.
I told him if he gets to work doing the program five days a week, we’ll talk every day or a minimum of every other day. I told him, if he gets on track for a month, then I’ll bring you down here, and we’ll work together, and I’ll start to really treat him this time. I’ll actually teach him how to teach what I do.”
