DDP Talks His Early WCW Days, RVD Inspiring Him, Eddie Guerrero, Being Fired By WCW, Hogan & More
WrestlingINC.com: During that time, business really caught fire with the nWo. You were feuding with Eddie Guerrero at that time, and we recently saw that great video of you and Chris Jericho sharing stories about Eddie. Are there any other stories you can share with us?
Page: One of my favorite moments with him was… if Eddie knew he was taking the [diamond] cutter – and a lot of times I was taking the [frog] splash – he's the one that came up with the powerbomb diamond cutter, it's the greatest diamond cutter out there. The only one that can touch it is the one that [Randy] Orton did with Evan Bourne. I think the one with Eddie was really, really amazing.
The one inside story I can tell ya, we were at Halloween Havoc and that's where Eddie was supposed to go over. If you look back and you watch that match, you'll see Eddie do this splash to me off the top rope down on the ground. He nudged up somewhere doing that and tore his right cartilage along his ribs, which is one of the most "Oh my god!" painful things – and he still kept going. I didn't even know he was hurt until right at the end, you'll see me grab him and hit him with the diamond cutter. I don't do anything spiffy with it, I just grab him and hit him. That's because when I'm going to pick him up and wanting him to reverse it on me, he's yelling, "diamond cutter! Diamond cutter!" so I said "OK" and hit him with the diamond cutter and pinned him, 1-2-3. He was in so much pain… but he kept going, though. But he could not do the frog splash off the top.
