Diamond Dallas Page may be done with his career inside the professional wrestling ring, but he continues to give back to the sport from outside the ropes.
Page began his career in the professional wrestling world back in 1988. It wasn't long before he signed a contract with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1991 and he began to solidify himself as one of the sport's top stars. Page captured the WCW World Championship three times, the World Television Title once, the United States Championship twice, and four WCW World Tag Team Titles. When WCW was bought out by WWE in 2001 Page was one of the few stars who transferred over to the WWE.
He remained with the company for three years before joining rival promotion Global Force Wrestling (GFW) (formerly known as TNA and Impact Wrestling). His stint with GFW lasted only a year before he later rejoined WWE in 2011. He continues to work for WWE and makes sporadic appearances on WWE television over the years.
Since then, however, Page has started his DDP Yoga program which has been used by various WWE Legends. Many former and current Superstars have raved about the program and claim it has helped their health dramatically. During a recent interview with Wrestle List, Page was asked about DDP Yoga and all his fellow legends he has helped.
Page did discuss one incident in which he and WWE Legend Vader got into a bit of a spat because he was unable to move to Atlanta in order for DDP to keep an eye on him while he used the DDP Yoga program (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"I love Vader, but he got his feelings hurt because I said "Leon I really need you to live here in Atlanta. I need you to take off wrestling for a while," and financially he just couldn't swing it. And he got kind of mad at me, and I said "Leon I can't really help you," and I didn't mean it like "I won't help you."
"A lot of the guys need that hands-on thing until they understand the DVDs and the App. Because I'm married now I can't move any of the guys in, I can have them for a couple of days or whatever, but I just want them to come and move to Atlanta.
"I understand this business, it's tough, but I just didn't want him to think I didn't want to help him because that's absurd! (Laughter)"
