WWE Hall of Famer DDP has discussed his long-standing feud with Ric Flair and how the two wrestling icons eventually put the past behind them.
Ric Flair and Diamond Dallas Page have shared an uneasy relationship over the years despite both men becoming massive stars, primarily in WCW.
Speaking on the DDP Snake Pit podcast, Diamond Dallas Page detailed how he finally sat down with Ric Flair at a Raw show in 2008 and were able to hash out their issues and move on:
“I knew what I wanted to do. I knew what I wanted to say… He came into the green room; of course, he got swarmed like he always does. Eventually, people moved out, and now it’s just Ric and me… We go out to the side, and I said, ‘You know Ric, I know we’ve had heat on and off over the years.’ He was like, ‘Ah Diamond, don’t worry about that.’ I go, ‘Ric; I’m not worried about it. I want to fix it.'”
“I don’t know how it happened. You know I’ve said some sh*t, you’ve said some sh*t, and I just want to fix it. I’d love to start all over again. I said I love Ric Flair; I don’t want to feel this way about you; I don’t want you to feel this way about me. I said, ‘I’m Diamond Dallas Page, and I put my hand out.’ And he popped. He gave me a hug and a kiss on the forehead and said, ‘ God bless you, brother. From then on, we built a relationship.”
