WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page recently appeared on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show to discuss all things pro-wrestling, including his short stint in WWE.
One topic that Page touches on is his involvement with AEW, where the Master of the Diamond Cutter reveals that he never signed a contract because he wanted to give Cody Rhodes input without bias. He also says he had hoped to continue working with WWE, but is no longer invited to the Performance Center.
The second part of [my] WWE run, for me, has been amazing. I knew I had to help Cody. I wanted to go help both [WWE and AEW], because I never signed a contract with AEW. I told [Cody], before he even asked me, I wanted him to know that you couldn’t pay me to help you, because I want whatever I tell you to have no agenda. So, if you ask me something, I’m gonna give you my honest thought. It’s not gonna be because it’s gonna help this, or help me, you know, or any of that. I said, I make plenty of money. Now, if you want me to wrestle, you’re gonna pay me. Pay for all my chiropractic stuff I’m gonna do after that, and before. But, off that, I don’t want him to pay me. I was hoping that I would still get to be able to work with [WWE] guys. And I still do privately, but I can’t go to the Performance Center anymore.
