Exclusive: Diamond Dallas Page on his Wrestlemania 35 weekend schedule & other upcoming events
As a WWE Hall Of Famer, Diamond Dallas Page is known to many millions of people around the world as a legendary professional wrestler. But rather than spending the rest of his post-wrestling life coasting on his wrestling-related accolades - including being a multi-time world champion - Page continues to work on a variety of sports and fitness-related projects that keep him regularly traveling around the world.
While promoting his memoir Positively Unstoppable: The Art Of Owning It, Page had the misfortune of losing his voice. Per a March 2nd social media announcement, Page had to cancel several of his then-upcoming appearances, noting that he had "been put on a strict 'no talking' recovery plan... can you imagine me NOT talking for that long... it's killing me!"
I had the pleasure of speaking with Diamond Dallas Page by phone on the afternoon of March 27th and his voice sounded to be back. Or at least a lot better than it had been last month. "I'm nursing my voice," he answered when complimented about his vocal recovery. "It's not there [yet] but I'm going to make it through Wrestlemania Weekend."
When asked what his schedule was going to be like during the weekend of April 5th, Page will, of course, be in the greater New York City area. "I look forward to seeing you guys there at the DDP YOGA workshop, Wrestlemania Axxess and WrestleCon," he began. "I'll be at Axxess Thursday night and Saturday morning, at WrestleCon on Friday daytime from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, and at the DDPY workshop at WrestleCon from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Anybody who comes to the [DDPY[ workshop gets a selfie and a group picture."
Those unable to meet DDP during Wrestlemania Weekend can also check out upcoming DDPY workshops in Las Vegas (May 23rd), Mexico (June 23rd to 29th) and Maryland (July 13th). The June dates - as hosted by Travelsmiths - are part of what's known as the "9th Annual DDP YOGA Retreat Extravaganza" and will be taking place at Riviera Maya, Mexico's El Dorado Casitas Royale By Karisma.
And if meeting Diamond Dallas Page at one of these DDPY appearances - more info on all of DDP’s events and many of his projects can be found at DDPYworkshops.com - and/or reading the Positively Unstoppable: The Art Of Owning It isn't enough DDP for you, you can hear an exclusive 2019 interview with the Master Of The Diamond Cutter on a recent edition of the Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz podcast.
