A WWE Hall of Famer has commented on a potential official last match.
Diamond Dallas Page returned to the squared circle on the January 15, 2020 “Bash At The Beach” special of AEW Dynamite. Page teamed with Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall in a loss to MJF, The Butcher and The Blade.
Since then, DDP has made several appearances at different shows and delivered a few Diamond Cutters, but he hasn’t had an official bout since that AEW match.
In a new interview with Josh Wilding, the WWE Hall of Famer was asked about doing an official last match. He answered:
“Cody (Rhodes) asked me right after we got done (following AEW match), because it was such a huge success for the ratings, everything came off perfectly.”
“He said, ‘would you consider, one more time?’ I said, ‘How do you top that?’ I was managing in the AWA and we had a feud with the Guerreros.”
“There is a picture, it’s out there somewhere, it’s a picture of Mando Guerrero running at the turnbuckle, run up the turnbuckle, and eject. I don’t know that he’s coming down on us. I’m like, ‘Oh my God.'”
“That was one of my first days in professional wrestling as a manager. That [AEW bout] would be the last thing I do, and it becomes part of my reel. I don’t know how I could ever top that.”
DDP continued on to note that the Ric Flair’s Last Match was one of his latest appearances and led to a DM from a top WWE star in Randy Orton. He stated:
“I did Flair’s thing, I did the thing with Matt Cardona, hit him with the diamond cutter, and it got a huge pop.”
“I got a DM from Randy Orton. He’s always been my guy, he’s one of the greatest of all time. He should be on Mount Rushmore, he’s that good.”
“He said, ‘I heard you said some things about me, thank you so much for the accolades. Saw that diamond cutter at Flair’s final match.'”
“‘I immediately googled your age and thought to myself bravo that you could still look as good as you do and be able to do what you do and still be healthy.’ Then he said, ‘the money is number one,’ and we started laughing.”
