From the WWE Rumor Mill: Reason why Diamond Dallas Page was backstage at Raw
What's the story?
In case you didn't know...
DDP made his pro wrestling debut in 1989 and was hired by WCW in 1991. Many didn't think DDP would make it in the business because he didn't start wrestling until the age of 34, but he proved everyone wrong with a total of three WCW World Championship title reigns.
The heart of the matter
According to the report, DDP was backstage at Monday Night Raw to film material for a couple of upcoming WWE specials. One of the confirmed projects that he was filming segments for is an "Unreleased Matches" DVD for the "Macho Man" Randy Savage that is set for release later this year.
Word is that DDP arrived at the arena just about the time the matches for main mvent were being filmed just prior to Monday Night Raw going live. He did not appear on camera during Raw this week.
The current release date for the Unreleased Matches DVD is May 28th according to Wrestling DVD Network but is subject to change.
Next up for the WWE is the Elimination Chamber pay per view for the Monday Night Raw brand this Sunday from Las Vegas, Nevada. It will feature the first women's Chamber match, as well as the first 7-man Chamber match in the 16-year history of the structure.
For those who do not subscribe to the WWE Network, this sounds like an awesome DVD to purchase for fans of the Macho Man. Obviously, there was great history between DDP and the Macho Man during their WCW days, and it will be great to hear some insight on some of those unseen matches.
