Diamond Dallas Page Talks About Working With Scott Hall & Jake Roberts, Hogan's Future, More
On working with Scott Hall and Jake Roberts: "Jake (Roberts) and I were talking about this when Scott (Hall) was first ready to come up and we knew that Jake is going to go down and get him and have a sit down which was on DDPTV and I looked at Jake and I thought to myself: 'Can you imagine if you and Scott both get sober in the same house in the same year' and we started laughing and thinking: 'Wow, that's amazing.' I didn't do anything and that's honestly how I feel. All I did was supply my buddies with really a positive place that they weren't going to be judged and I was going to get them to understand when I talk about my eating place and I'll never use the word diet because you know what the first three letters in the word diet are.
They don't work, lifestyles do. I put movies in front of them like food, Inc. and genetic roulette and then they can see on how the food has been so changed that it will depress you, it will put weight on you that will drag you down emotionally and once they got that out of there system, they start to feel better and they haven't done anything yet! (Chris) Jericho said it first and he's really the first who put DDP Yoga on the map and the best part about it and you say: 'Well, what kind of conditioning can I get with my DDP Yoga?' and I said 'How about this?' Jericho who was completely pain free in three months and headlined WrestleMania two years ago and continues to work a few months, take a couple months off and then goes tours with Fozzy for six months like every night playing out and he is not wrestling, he is only doing one work out and he shows up at the Royal Rumble in the number two spot and wrestles for forty seven minutes and fifty three seconds, unheard of!
But it gave my program legitimacy on a different level plus there are about sixteen guys in the Rumble that are doing DDP Yoga so it was a really cool thing and he opened up the doors to guys like Goldust and how good is Goldust looking right now and Ryback as well. Then Scott saw Jake when he was laying in his bed when he went through that really tough time where he was in the hospital bed for that week and that one kid, who is almost like an angel, because it said: 'No visitors!' But this one kid who is a fan came in and he has it on his IPhone and he says: 'Scott, look what Dallas did with Jake, maybe he can do it with you.' Scott's looking at him like: 'Oh my God.'
It was putting my two buddies in an environment that was caring, loving and everyone in my house is positive and you're not allowed to work for me with a negative attitude and it won't be tolerated and you work out and eat great food because I only buy real food and our food is delicious. I'm doing a workshop in Atlanta and it's the only time when I do what is called: 'The Ultimate Workshop' and there are only fifteen people that do this but we have a pretty big crowd for the overall workshop where we do three hours and its starting and stopping and it's not like a three hour workout but you really learn how to break everything down and then we do an hour and ten minute workout at the end and I make it where everyone can do it and after that, those fifteen people come over to my house. We break it down and we have all the food made and we show them how to make everything and they leave with menus. I want people to understand that healthy food doesn't have to taste bad."
