Peacock have announced that WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page will be the next guest on The Broken Skull Sessions with Stone Cold Steve Austin.
It has been confirmed that the episode will premiere on December 19th on Peacock in the United States and on the WWE Network in the rest of the world. The most recent edition of the show was broadcast on November 25th and featured Jeff Hardy.
Previous guests on the show include The Undertaker, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho and most recently Seth Rollins.
DDP last wrestled in January 2020 at AEW Dynamite Bash at the Beach. On that occasion he teamed with Dustin Rhodes & QT Marshall to take on MJF, The Butcher & The Blade. His last in-ring appearance for WWE came in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
Diamond Dallas Page began his wrestling journey in 1988 in the AWA where he performed as a manager. He arrived in WCW three years later as a manager for the Fabulous Freebirds, while also working as a colour commentator alongside future company president Eric Bischoff.
Page began training to be a wrestler that same year, despite being 35 years of age. After stepping inside the ropes, DDP experimented with different personas and presentations until he began to rise through the card in the mid-1990’s. Along with his ‘Diamond Cutter’ finishing move, Page’s popularity continued to soar into the late 90’s as he picked up the United States and Television Titles.
DDP was finally crowed WCW Champion at Spring Stampede in April 1999. In total he would hold the World Championship on three occasions before WCW closed it’s doors in March 2001.
After WWE acquired the company, Diamond Dallas Page was one of the first WCW stars to ‘invade’ debuting as the mysterious figure who had been stalking The Undertaker and his wife at King of the Ring 2001. Page only remained with WWE for a year, due to sustaining a serious neck injury in April 2002.
The injury effectively ended his full-time in-ring career, save for a short run with TNA in 2005.
DDP was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017.
