Diamond Dallas Page Reveals Why He Left TNA Wrestling

Diamond Dallas Page Reveals Why He Left TNA Wrestling

Posted on November 17, 2013 by
Diamond Dallas Page spoke with the RCWR Show about what led to him leaving TNA Wrestling back in 2005. Here is what he said:

"Uumm, money; hahaha. I came back for one reason, to show that I could still go at 49. I was 49 years old when I was bouncing around out there like that in TNA and I wasn’t about the same weight I was at 44, not the same but I wasn’t that far off. I just really wanted to come back for that one year, you know, rack it up, have some fun matches, you know, make some money and then when it came time to renegotiate the contract we just didn’t agree and I was like no big deal, thank you very much, I had a great time. I was really done. I didn’t have the run I wanted in the WWE, obviously. I did have a great little run with Christian, we had a great wrestle mania but you know, two and a half years later I wanted to show that DDP could still go and that was the only reason that I did it. It was more about showing that what was possible with DDP yoga than it was about being in the ring, so I obviously had lived the dream on a whole different level at WCW and I make a lot of money. I wasn’t going back for the money, of course you want to make a lot of money but I’m not going to beat up my body unless I’m making a certain number because for me to risk hurting my knees anymore or for me to risk hurting my back, my hips and my ankles, for me its pivotal that my body be in the best shape that I can be in. I don’t want to be broken down and beat up like so many of my other brothers."

I was expecting to hear that he was disgruntled and that he left because of Dixie Carter.. Glad that isn't the case and it goes to show that at 49 then, DDP still could go.. Be good if they put him in the 2014 Royal Rumble.
