• WWE Repeatedly Rejected A Dream Match Involving The Rock
Old School WCW Legend Diamond Dallas Page recently appeared as a guest on The Angle podcast, where he talked about his career and going from World Championship Wrestling to the World Wrestling Federation.
The 2017 WWE Hall of Famer revealed that Vince McMahon kept rejecting his idea of having a program with The Rock, that would’ve led to a big match between the two.
Here’s what DDP said:
“Every single thing that I have ever said has happened, except for when I came up with the idea of People’s Champion versus People’s Champion. That’s what should have happened.
When you want to do People’s Champion vs. People’s Champion, call me.’ And I wouldn’t have given a sh*t if I had to put Rock over every night, it would have just gotten bigger and bigger and bigger. It would’ve gotten better and better and better.
We’re gonna draw huge money, me and The Rock, but it wasn’t about that. It was like, ‘You guys b*tch slapped us for 83 weeks straight’. Now we’re not gonna put you over. And I get it, it was just business.”
DDP was last seen in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in 2020, while The Rock is rumored to return to the ring at this year’s annual Survivor Series PPV, which will be his 25th WWF/WWE anniversary.
