Former WCW World Heavyweight champion, DDP spoke with WGD Weekly and here are the highlights:
WWE paying tribute to The Ultimate Warrior last night on Raw: “As hard as it it is on the family and his poor little girls, at least their dad, whatever the hurt and the pain was with WWE, at least pain was, with the WWE, at least he got to go out the way he should go out. Because when he said that last DVD was wrong, he is right, I couldn’t even watch it. When you get the reaction he got eighteen years later, for him to have that kind of impact on people, WWE did the right thing. I’m just glad that if the Warrior was going to be taken to the next level, whatever that is, that his time here, that things I won’t say mixed, but were justified. He will be remembered fondly, as he should be.”
What was he thinking appearing on Nancy Grace: “I almost got up and walked away, but if I would’ve done that how would that look for wrestling? I was just like, ‘Nancy, he hasn’t wrestled in eighteen years, what are you talking about?’”
What was it like running into Warrior last year: “I saw Jim again, last year at WrestleCon, and he just started talking about me doing gods work with Jake [Roberts] and Scott [Hall]. He talked about it for a while, it was very cool. So, then his induction speech, my god, when he slid in DDP Yoga, I was sitting with Kimberly – my ex wife – and my girlfriend. And he said it like three or four times. Jim ain’t doing that unless he is busting your chops. It just made me feel so good. I was actually bummed out because I couldn’t find him after, I was looking for him, and I actually got his number, and I was going to call him yesterday and thank him for doing that! But I never got the opportunity to do that. So, that memory will stay with me for a while.”
Andrews Take: It was a bad decision for any wrestler to go on Nancy Grace’s show. Just Google Nancy Grace and pro wrestling to read all the bad things about her. I have no respect for her in the way that she carries herself and her show.
