WWE Hall of Famer DDP (Diamond Dallas Page), who is recognized as one of the greatest talents as well as legends in pro wrestling history, recently appeared on The Angle Podcast, where he spoke about the journey that Jake "The Snake" Roberts has had and how he has improved since Roberts' lowest moment in his life.
“He loves pro wrestling and he loves himself.” “I never thought I’d meet that Jake. Discipline is the truest form of self love. If you go back to anytime you failed, you stopped disciplining yourself.”
DDP then spoke about how he had no idea he was going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but it is something he would not complain about.
“Well for starters I didn’t have any idea. They let you know either in January or February and this was in October and they were doing a video on me.” “WWE wanted to bury WCW when we got there. It was business, it wasn’t me personally. I took the brunt of it, but I knew if I just shut my mouth and didn’t complain like so many other guys do and put down the company. They are going to have to put me in that Hall of Fame or something. How could you not? No one’s ever had my story.”
DDP then spoke about him being aware of his WWE Hall of Fame induction as he was informed by Triple H before hand.
“Triple H and I go way back. When I got his call I was like, ‘Hey bro,’ because I put a call in for him. I thought he was just calling me back.” “He started talking about my career and my work ethic and at some point I started thinking, ‘Is this that call?’ And I don’t want to say it is because I don’t know, but they’re filming me and at some point he says we’re going to put you in. Dusty Rhodes said, ‘D, there are only two things that are real in our business: one is winning your first world championship title and two is that hall of fame ring.'”
DDP then spoke about his storyline in the WWE when he was asked to be the stalker of The Undertaker's wife.
“Vince McMahon taught me to never be afraid to walk away from the table. What I should’ve done was got up.” “When Vince said, ‘I want you to stalk The Undertaker’s wife,’ and he’s looking across from one of the most beautiful women ever, my first ex-wife, I was there to be a part of the team. In WCW I fought for everything. If I were in the WCW mindset and Vince said we want you to stalk Undertaker’s wife, I would’ve looked at him, looked at her, looked back at him, and said, ‘Vince are you looking at my wife?’ I’m going to stalk some other cats wife when everybody knows she’s my wife? What I should’ve done was shook everyone’s hands and said love the idea, but not for DDP.”
DDP then spoke about the dream match he wanted in WWE that never happened, which is against The Rock.
“When you want to do people’s champion vs. people’s champion (DDP vs. The Rock) call me.”
