Diamond Dallas Page on Cody Rhodes Face Turn, Working w/ Randy Orton, & More

Mike Killam

Former WCW and WWE wrestler Diamond Dallas Page recently sat down with Joe Omega and Frank Manzo of Wrestle Reaction for a long, in-depth interview.

On Scripted Promos: “The WWE gives me what they'd like to see and I rewrite it the way I want to say it. Because it's my words, and I want to say them the way I want to say them. I'll get their points over, but I'm not gonna be somebody else. I'm not going to take written material like they give the performers every night. This is something very close to my heart.”

Working with Randy Savage in WCW: "96 my career and the diamond cutter was starting to take off. So when my whole thing with the NWO started, Randy [Savage] actually went to Bischoff and said "I want to work with him". I would never have gotten that choice; would never have been able to say that. Our feud was so legendary on so many reasons, because we made it believable." … "Randy Savage had total creative control of his character, and what happened to his character, just like Hulk did. And if Randy Savage didn't think I was a top guy, he never would have done it."
