When he found out about the appearance: "I found out about a couple of days before. Johnny Ace called me up and asked if I could make it. I was in Louisville at a Fright Night fanfest -- I do a lot of those because I was Billy Ray Snapper in Devils Rejects, which was like the Reservoir Dogs when it comes to horror. So I was working for five straight days, then I had to catch a flight at 4:00 in the morning to go to Laredo [the site of last night's RAW]. I had already been up early the past three days with no sleep, but it was worth it."
The crowd reaction to his return: "If I didn't know they were on a tight time frame and [if] it was all about me, I would have really taken some time there. But I know they were on a time frame so I didn't want to do that... I can get my sh-t across and do what we needed to do because sometimes less is more. That time that we [Page and Slater] had, that little moment back and forth, and they [fans] started chanting 'DDP,' and I gotta tell ya, I was a little set back by it. I mean, the pop that I got when I came out was amazing. They started chanting 'DDP' and it got louder and louder... I was like, 'Wow.' Maybe I did make a real impression to some people... maybe I did do something right over all those years. Because you can't make people do that, you know?"
Criticism from some fans for not wrestling a match: "Those same people that complain about me not wrestling a match are the same people who would complain that I went too long, or I didn't do this, or I didn't do that. Those are the reasons that my critics could never carry my jock. [laughs]"
Make sure to check back tomorrow for our full interview with Page, who also discusses a conversation he had with CM Punk last night, wrestlers talking to him about DDP Yoga, more about his appearance on RAW, if he has changed his mind about returning to the ring, memories of Randy Savage and more.
