WWE Hall of Famer DDP truly loves professional wrestling, as he has been part of the industry for more than half of his time on earth. Since 2015, he has only competed in three matches.

However, that does not mean he is not ready to step back into the ring again for one last bout somewhere down the line. At 66 years of age, DDP feels he still has something left in the tank.

DDP parted ways with WWE in 2002, but he was offered a big role prior to his exit. Speaking on Busted Open Radio, DDP revealed that WWE offered him a job working as an announcer with Kevin Dunn as part of Monday Night RAW.

“When I left [in 2002], I was so burnt out. Kevin Dunn asked me to go and do a test to be an announcer … They wanted me to do a spot, so I did it. I went up there [to WWE HQ in Stamford, CT] and I did it. Kevin called me back, he goes, ‘I love it. We’re gonna start you, not with SmackDown, we’re gonna start you with the satellite for the first month or two. You get your feet wet, you’ll be on SmackDown. In no time, you’re gonna be on Raw.”


DDP turned down the offer but Kevin Dunn told him to think about it noting that he thought DDP could be, “the next Jesse Ventura.” Regardless, DDP is happy doing what he wants to right now and that’s all that matters.
