Totally Driven Radio, the weekly radio podcast heard live every Thursday night from 8 -11 pm est time on the Totally Driven Entertainment Radio Network, covers the world of sports and entertainment each week, as well as bringing you celebrity guests interviews.

Former WCW World Champion and now the man behind the DDP Yoga Diamond Dallas Page was a guest on this week's program.

DDP talked to the boys about how he came up with the Diamond Studd gimmick and the 5 o'clock shadow look for Scott Hall in WCW, after seeing a George Michael video on Mtv in the middle of the night.

He talked about his time in Florida Championship Wrestling and how he had to try out for Dusty Rhodes over the phone to get his job, and where he got to be a color commentator alongside the Legendary Gordon Solie.

He explained about how he actually has 5 decades of wrestling in and had a few matches in 1978, but he was also in the bar business at the same time, but it was hard for him to turn down all the broads, booze and money so he stuck with the bar business.

He discussed how he went to Jake "The Snake" Roberts for help with his early matches in WCW, and Jake is the one who really taught him psychology in wrestling.

He told us how once he put his move the Diamond Cutter into his matches is what really put him over the top.
He said without Dusty Rhodes there is no Diamond Dallas Page, and without Jake Roberts he wouldn't have become a top guy, let alone World Champion.

He talked about how Arn Anderson told him he would never be a top guy in the business.

He discussed what his opinions and feelings about ECW was as federation grew in the 90s, and how he got Raven into ECW and one of his biggest regrets is never getting to work in the ECW Arena, especially after Dusty Rhodes told him the building was magic.

He explained how his Ex Wife Kimberly kept suggesting yoga after being told he would never wrestle again and he combined it with exercises he learned from rehabilitation which would now be known as DDP Yoga.

He does DDP Yoga 5 days a week, and at 57 years young he has abs, and is ripped and is svelte.

He talked about the amazing story of how he helped the disabled veteran Arthur, and how that video has over 10,000,000 views and was in Google?s top 100 videos last year.

He explained he they have a new app coming out, as well as DDP Yoga for seniors, and how Arthur used a chair as part of his workouts.

He also talked about how the help he has been giving to Jake Roberts and Scott Hall to help them live a clean, healthy and structured life style.

DDP joins Totally Driven Radio at the 23 minute mark, and hangs out with the boys for over 45 minutes to discuss these topics and more.
