DDP was able to offer his help through an exchange on Twitter:




Lewis recently mentioned in an interview on The MMA Hour that his back issues and withdraw from UFC 216 had lead him to cry like a baby.

“I was crying like a big-ass baby. My coach knew how much this fight means to me and I didn’t want to pull out for nothing. My coaches, they all convinced me that it’s probably the best thing to do to pull out because they knew I was going through the same problems with Mark Hunt and I didn’t pull out in that fight and it cost me. We’re just waiting on MRIs right now before we can start my treatment because they want to see what’s the issue first. The doctor I talked to Thursday he said that he’s willing to release me anytime, it’s up to me, but I really want to take the precautions to see what’s really wrong with my back,” said Lewis.

It is unknown at this time of DDP and Lewis have come together to deal with the fighters back problems. DDP has also helped a plethora of people through his DDP Yoga For Regular Guys program, including two other WWE Hall Of Fame members in Scott Hall and Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
