Diamond Dallas Page 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee
DDP is just everything that I grew up loving about WCW wrestling. He might be one of the 5 guys that got me coming back to it over WWF every week. Most wrestling fans I feel talk alot of shit about WCW but I always loved it. The rise of the NWO was what I was watching over the rise of DX in WWF. I think that it was just the love of Hogan, Scott Hall, and Kevin Nash got me to the channel but Diamond Dallas Page kept me coming back. His promos were the best and he was a huge fan favorite.
DDP’s real name is Page Joseph Falkinburg, I think we can all say it was a good name change which he did legally in 03, began in 1988 with a short 8 month stint in the American Wrestling Association before landing in WCW. In the next 10 years with the company he became champion 3 times world heavyweight, 2 time united states heavyweight, 4 time tag, and world tv champion. He was with the company in it’s heyday. He had so many good matches between Randy Savage and tagging up with Karl Malone. This was the time when wrestling was getting even more popular than ever before.
At the end of his wrestling career the guy couldn’t really even move anymore so he retired in 2005 basically. Now what people don’t know about him since then is he started his own yoga practice. Calling it DDP yoga, I have heard from countless athletes that are swearing by it extending their career or basically saving their lives. Two notable guys are Jake the snake Roberts, Scott Hall and even Mark Schlereth.
I think it’s pretty weird too but people swear by it. Coming up in Wrestling Mania 33 he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Here are some highlights
