• WWE Hall Of Famer Wants To Hit His Finisher In Matches When He Turns 70

During an interview on Renee Young’s podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page revealed that Ric Flair called him to see if he’ll be part of his Last Match.

The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion respectfully turned down The Nature Boy’s offer.

Below is what DDP said:

“Ric Flair actually called me and asked me if I would be in the match with him and do a 6-man (tag team match).

At first he said, ‘How old are you?’ I said, ‘66.’ He said, ‘I’ve seen you. You’re in great shape. I really would love to have you in this match.’

I said, ‘Ric, I can’t do it. I feel so good. I can’t take a chance of hurting myself.’ He said, ‘I feel great.’ I said, ‘You’re not from this planet.’

That’s when he talked me into doing the roast.”

While DDP turned down an offer for Flair’s last match, he recently went on to say that he wants to hit Diamond Cutters in a match when he’s 70 years old.

Below is what he said during an interview on the Battleground podcast:

“I really want to do them when I’m 70, you know, just to be able to prove what I can still do.”

DDP last match took place on the January 15, 2020 episode of AEW Dynamite, where he teamed up with Dustin Rhodes & QT Marshall to lose to the team of MJF and The Butcher & The Blade in a 6-man tag team match.
