WWE Hall of Fame Legend Diamond Dallas Page
Diamond Dallas Page (DDP), the former good guy of World Championship Wrestling “turned bad” continues to be one of the most recognized and respected superstars of professional wrestling. A lso known as the “people’s champion,” his contagious popularity can be credited to his unshakable confidence and positive energy.
Against the odds, this wrestling manager – turned commentator – turned wrestler is an anomaly of success. With his patented “diamond cutter” finishing move, he paved the way to ring glory. In the past years his tag team partners have included NBA superstar Karl Malone and late night talk show host Jay Leno. More recently, he became a two-time defender of the WCW Heavyweight Championship.
Diamond Dallas Page is very active with his own charity foundation, “Bang it Out For Books.” This grassroots organization was formed to fight illiteracy and promote the fun and benefits of reading to our nation’s elementary school children. DDP, who fought dyslexia and fear of reading as a child, donates his appearance fee to a local school for the purchase of books and educational materials. To get more BANG for the book he has teamed up with Scholastic, the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of schoolbooks, to match his donation dollar for dollar.
