Wrestling is a business where people settle their differences between the ropes and try to fight it out for an opportunity to be the ultimate winner in a specific bout. Diamond Dallas Page had the willingness to fight The Rock, but it never came to light.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, DDP expressed his desire that he wanted to fight the WWE Hall of Famer, but it never materialized. DDP joined WWF in 2001 and prior to that he had won three world titles.

He announced his retirement from in-ring competition in June 2002. The 66-year-old was offered an opportunity to be behind the commentary desk, but he turned the offer down.

I wouldn’t change a thing, not even the way I came into WWE. Wasn’t my favorite. … But, you know, coming in there and not getting what I wanted; People’s Champion versus People’s Champion, you know, it’s why I’ve been so successful following that, you know? The biggest lesson I’ve learned is you can’t be afraid to walk away from the table when you know you’ve got something.

DDP shared the ring with several legends, including Hulk Hogan, Goldberg, Rey Mysterio, and Edge. However, he never squared off against The Rock. DDP used to call himself The People’s Champion in WCW.

It’s funny thinking that WCW’s People’s Champion never got the opportunity to fight WWF’s People’s Champion. They are in the state now where an in-ring match would not yield results.


What do you think would be the right thing to do now? Sound off in the comments.
