Diamond Dallas Page is one of the all-time greats and has produced high-quality matches in the WWE and the WCW. He has wrestled some of the top stars of both past and present. DDP is also Eric Bischoff’s friend and has been his friend for nearly 10 years.
Eric helped DDP rise in the WCW and believes that Eric trusted his ability and pushed him to the top of the company. Bischoff was, until recently, working for the WWE as the Smackdown Executive Director. He was to lead the brand and help them get good ratings according to reports.
He was recently fired, however. This is what DDP said: "I think maybe the style up there didn't mesh. When you're up there in that spot, it's like being a manager for the Yankees. They're gonna give you a shot and if things don't work out, then onto the next.
But there's nobody I've seen in my life who lands on their feet as well as Eric Bischoff," stated DDP”. "I've been proud to call him one of my close friends forever. If he's not a Hall of Famer then I really don't know who is because that cat changed the business.
He changed it in a way that there weren't 37 different wrestling companies, there was one that was Goliath and one that was a little bigger than David. Then before you knew it, for 83 weeks he turned WCW into Goliath."
