DDP is headed to the WWE Hall of Fame

3-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion ‘Diamond’ Dallas Page is headed to the WWE Hall of Fame. RollingStone.com broke the news early today on their website along with a brand new interview with Page – he joins Kurt Angle, The Rock n’ Roll Express and Teddy Long as a member of the 2017 HOF class. 

Here’s what Page told Rolling Stone about getting ‘the call’ from Triple H about his upcoming induction:

We were filming Positively Living, the Diamond Dallas Page three-DVD set. I’m a Jersey boy, so I was on the Jersey Shore in my hometown, and it was the end of the day and we were filming one more thing. They handed me the phone and said, “Boss wants to talk to you.” It’s HHH. I called him a couple weeks earlier and he hadn’t gotten back to me yet, so I thought this was that return call. So we’re talking about casual stuff, and then I start to hear him talk about my career and where I’ve been and how I got here, and then it hits me – is this that call? I’m not a guy who has trouble talking, but I couldn’t talk. Tears are running down the sides of my cheeks and I just said, “Bro, I love you man.”

Beyond wrestling, Page is known for his wildy popular DDP Yoga program. His workouts have played a integral part in the recovers of his close friends, co workers and now fellow Hall of Famers, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts and Scott Hall. 

Expect to see a emotional highlight package announcing Page’s inclusion in this year’s HOF class tonight in Los Angeles as a part of Monday Night RAW.
