WWE Hall of Famer DDP was recently the guest on Talk is Jericho. During the show DDP talked about squashing the heat between him and Ric Flair.
“Me and Naitch during my career and stuff and even afterwards, there was this tension, and I always loved the Nature Boy. About 10 or 12 years ago, whenever they dropped all the balloons for him when they retired him, I was watching it. I’m like, man, I never wanted to have this tension between me and him because I grew up loving that guy. So we’re both doing a signing in Jersey, and of course, he comes in the green room. He’s swarmed by people, and I wait until everybody’s gone.”
“And when he’s done, he’s like, ‘Hey Diamond!’ I’m like, ‘Hey Naitch, can we talk for a second?’ He goes, ‘Sure.’ So we walk off to the side, and I say, ‘You know Naitch, I know over the years me and you have had a little bit of heat together.’ He’s like, ‘Oh Diamond, don’t worry about that.’ I’m like, ‘Naitch, I’m not worried about it. Bro, I want to fix it. I don’t know what happened. I know that I’ve said some s**t. I know you said some s**t. The last thing I want to do is be in this spot. Man, I love the Nature Boy. I would just love to start all over again,’ and I put my hand out, and I said, ‘I’m Diamond Dallas Page.’ And he grabbed me, and hugged me, kissed me on the forehead and God bless you. I really felt like this is the beginning.”
