Diamond Dallas Page is giving love to Chris Jericho and talking about why he currently prefers AEW over WWE.
Diamond Dallas Page is a WWE Hall of Famer. Diamond Dallas Page also had his last match on American television for AEW. Being a major star in the Monday Night War era, DDP understands the value of competition. Speaking in an interview with DAZN, DDP explained that he prefers AEW to WWE at this point because of its loyal fan base and the energy the fans bring.
DDP also noted that he would not have wrestled in front of a digital audience as many WWE wrestlers had to do for quite some time.
"I gotta give AEW the 60/40 (percent) thing right now. They are the cool thing on top. The biggest thing that I love about AEW is the fans (and) how the fans react. I wrestled there two years ago this January. I would never have done it if there were no fans. Cody's (Rhodes, Dusty’s son) like my nephew, and I helped him a lot in the beginning, just with the production side."
DDP was also very complimentary of Chris Jericho, revealing that the music video for Judas was filmed at one of his DDP Yoga Performance Centers. Page would call Jericho this era’s Ric Flair.
"Nathan Lowry, who was one of the guys who works for me and the guy who was the director of Jericho’s (song) 'Judas.' They filmed Judas in my DDP Yoga Performance Center. That was one of those who changed Chris Jericho’s life. To me, Chris Jericho is the most over guy in professional wrestling. He's Ric Flair. He’s Ric Flair now. He's got 30 years, he's still on top, he continues to reinvent himself, and he can still work ass off. They're singing his song. That's got to be the greatest compliment ever. To me, it’s the greatest entrance in wrestling because the people are so involved with it."
