WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page was recently interviewed on the WINCLY podcast to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Page discussed Jericho’s influence on the success of Diamond Dallas Page Yoga (DDPY), “Y2J’s” longevity, David Arquette’s wrestling return, and if Arquette should be in the Royal Rumble this year. Here are the highlights:
Jericho’s influence on the success of DDPY: “I think Jericho’s one of the most entertaining cats out there, period. From music to wrestling to whatever the f*ck he wants to do, Chris Jericho gets owning it at a different level,” said Page. “The reason why he helped get DDPY off the ground, is because he did it and in five weeks he’s 85 percent pain free.
“In three months, after they saying his career was over, he headlines ‘Mania with Punk. He told everyone [about DDPY] and still does today. If you’re talking to him [he’s like], ‘Boom. You need to do it. You need to do his program.'”
Jericho’s longevity: “I hope he wrestles into his 50s,” DDP said. “He just shows that sh*t really works.”
David Arquette’s wrestling return: “He just wants to walk away with some kind of respect because he loves wrestling,” Page said. “I’ll you what, the sh*t I’ve seen him doing, I think he’s crazy and I think he’s a loon. But at the same time, I love it. He’s doing it and he’s looking good doing it. And the MF is in awesome shape!”
If Arquette should be in the Royal Rumble this year: “F*ck yea I’d do it [laughter]. He would get thrown in and thrown out faster than The Godfather [who lasted 5 seconds in 2013]. As soon as his feet touched the ground [of the ring], he’d be thrown over the top rope,” stated Page.
