Dallas Page, more commonly known as Diamond Dallas Page or DDP, has had a long and storied career in the wrestling ring.
After leaving rival promotion World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 2001, DDP signed with the then WWF and went on to become the European Champion and World Tag Team Champion.
Page allowed his contract to expire after a spate of injuries but made a series of guest appearances on WWE shows between 2010 and 2015.

In March 2017, Page was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
These days Page has found a second career in yoga. The former wrestler, who discovered the health benefits of the practice while rehabbing his own injuries, created the Yoga for Regular Guys Workout and later turned it into a DVD program. One of his most high profile success stories is Vance Hinds, who went from 475 pounds down to 277 — a loss of nearly 200 pounds.
Triple H is one of the most accomplished wrestlers of all time.
Since his WWF debut in 1996, Levesque has racked up 14 world championships and ushered in the Attitude Era as part of the D-Generation X faction alongside Shawn Michaels, Chyna, and Rick Rude.
