Diamond Dallas Page Talks About Working With Scott Hall & Jake Roberts, Hogan's Future, More
I said: 'No, there not. I haven't been on the road for three months. The only reason why I'm on this card is because my real last name before I changed it to Page was Falkinberg and the crowd loves its Germans and I have a smoking hot wife that accompanies me to the ring. That's the only reason why I'm here.' He goes: 'How are you getting so much better?' I said: 'I go to the Power Plant.' He really didn't understand that because in his day, you went from one territory to another to another and that's how you got better and they can camouflage you, change your name and whatever. I figured out and this applies to anyone, this is a lesson in life and I went down to the Power Plant because wrestling is a lot like playing the guitar meaning you can't get any good unless you play all the time. I went back to the Power Plant and I started to train the young guys and I realized that the more you teach someone, the more you learn. The more you learn, the better you get.
Hulk goes: 'However you're doing it, whatever you're doing, you need to keep doing it because it may not be today, next year or the year after but somewhere down the line, you have the ability to draw huge money with me' and he walked away. Let's manifest that four years later, Hulk is on the stage of the 'Tonight Show' with Hulk and (Dennis) Rodman being interview by (Jay) Leno and (Karl) Malone and I walk out with the chairs over our heads. The number two leading scorer of all-time in the NBA, Karl Malone has my 'Diamond Cutter' shirt on, we throw the chairs down and throw up the 'Diamond Cutter' sign and do 'The Bang' and we face off with those guys and shoot our angle which was the biggest angle ever for WCW as far as money, super coverage across the planet in the biggest show in the world and it wasn't a wrestling show. We are shooting an angle on the world's stage, the 'Tonight Show'. It was crazy."
