Nick Paglino


Diamond Dallas Page has posted a new blog on his website addressing a number of topics including new talent and his relationship with Ric Flair. Page wrote, “Guys and Gals who go to these one week seminars have the opportunity to learn from the very best. Steve (Keirn) in the Ring and I can’t imagine someone better to teach microphone skills then the The Dream Dusty Rhodes. To top it off the day I was there these guys and gals got to hear from John Cena and Sgt. Slaughter. The trainers down there are some of the best hands in the businessâ<80>¦Tommy Pritchard, Billy Kidman, Norman Smiley. Expect some great new talent to come up to WWE from FCW.”

On meeting with and speaking to Ric Flair: “I got to the show and the first person I saw when I walked though the door was man I was hoping to talk toâ<80>¦the Nature Boy Ric Flair. There has been a lot said about the heat between Flair and I over the years and I wanted to address it. I walked up to him and said â<80><9c>Ric, you mind if I talk to you for a second?â<80> Of course he obliged, we walked over to a corner and I said â<80><9c>Ric we both know there has been some heat between us over the yearsâ<80> and before I can say another word, he said â<80><9c>Dallas, Iâ<80><99>m alright with everything. None of that mattersâ<80> I said â<80><9c>Ric it matters to me… because you were someone I admired growing up. Before I got into wrestling… like everyone else I loved the Nature Boy and I want to make sure we have don’t have any more heat… whatever has been said, I like to let it all go and just start overâ<80> he said â<80><9c> consider it done… there is no heat between usâ<80> We shook hands and of course

I had to pull him in for a big hug… Ha!” You can read the entire blog if you click here.
