What did you think of DDP as a wrestler/manager?

As a manager, I thought he was pretty bad. Like he was trying to stuff every possible gimmick into his character.

As a wrestler I felt the same way, at first. Somewhere along the line figured it out and lost all the unnecessary crap.

Personally, I was never a big fan of the guy, but I can't deny that he was over like crazy towards the end of WCW. Guy seemed like a hard worker, and did what was necessary to improve. I just never got past disliking him in the early going.

Others dismiss him because he only got his break because of his friendship with Bischoff, but I'm not real sure that should factor into his final judgment all that much. Every wrestler has a unique circumstance regarding how they got their big break. It all boils down to what they did once they got the ball. Going by that, I think DDP was a success.

Like I said before, I'm not a real big fan of the guy, but he did have some pretty decent matches in WCW, and his Diamond Cutter was probably the most over finisher in the company.

To me it was hard to get past the former manager stuff, and the fact that by the time he was progressing up the ladder, he looked like he should be collecting social security.

That was a thing I forgot to include. He looked awful.

Couldn't stand him as a mouthpiece or color commentator. As a wrestler, I totally got into his rise in WCW.  Once he made it to the top, however, he seemed to run out of fresh ideas and my attention quickly turned elsewhere.

I think that I liked the storyline of DDP far better than DDP himself.

Only good thing about DDP was checking out his hot wife every week.

I enjoyed his WCW rise. It was so unexpected and he improved so much during it. Didn't care much for his work as a manager, though.

He's a guy that got more out of his career with less natural ability than others do. Part of that can be attributed to knowing someone to get his foot in the door (Bischoff). However, hard work also contributed to his success.

Was a pretty good ambassador for the company during its mainstream push.

And he did introduct Kimberly into the wrestling scene and I had a megacrush on here as a teen.

Page improved to the point where he was actually good, then came the endless overpush.

Kimberly was hot though. Id have fucked her too given the chance.

I doubt many wrestlers have worked as hard to get themselves over as Page.  I'll give him loads of credit for that.  And few can have cared as much to give decent matches.

One of those guys who was hurt by being pushed too soon and because of who he was friends with.  By the time the smarks started to hate him, he was already pretty damn good.  His feud with Savage in particular was awesome and him turning down the offer to join the NWO and Diamond Cutting Scott Hall to a mega-pop was one of the iconic moments of the '90s and happened near WCW's peak.
