DDP Issues Statement On Nancy Grace Appearance

Diamond Dallas Page issued the following statement about his appearance on Nancy Grace on Wednesday:

I went on Nancy Grace last night expecting to discuss Warrior the man. Had I known the only topic discussed would be steroids I would not have participated. At the time I was also unaware of the list that was shown to the viewing audience. To imply that all of the wrestlers on that list died from steroids was wrong and for that they owe the families an apology. Again, my only intention was to discuss Warrior the man and share some stories about how dedicated he was to the wrestling business. I am saddened that was not what happened and my thoughts remain with his family.

As I stated on Twitter, did we not learn anything from Grace’s deplorable coverage of the Chris Benoit tragedy? She doesn’t know what she’s talking about, she doesn’t properly research her topics and she has no credibility to anyone that pays attention to what she features. She’s an entertainer that is trying to garner a reaction and all of the controversy regarding her segment on Ultimate Warrior will probably drive her ratings up. She’s been trending on Twitter all day. The most powerful message wrestling fans can send Nancy Grace is to ignore her.

    I would probably get in trouble if I said exactly how I feel about Nancy Grace. However, her website said that Warrior LEGALLY changed his name to The Ultimate Warrior. A simple Google search would tell you other. Just on that pure fact they can’t get any of the simplest terms correct tells me no one should tune in to her show or that channel.

      Man I hate nancy grace. Shes terrible as is – let alone causing this kind of crap after someone passes away. It’s a joke.

    • Jim Evans

      He legally changed his name to just ” Warrior “

      • Matt

        Yup, anyone with a computer knows that but they don’t do their research before going on the air and reporting “news”.

        • Jim Evans

          I sent Nancy Grace a Tweet and told her what i thought of her and the first letter to the word i called her started with a ” C ” lol. Other people should do the same thing.

  • Patrick

    If DDP was aware how she really is…then he should have known better then appear on her show.

    Tweet from @WWEZeb: If anybody receives an email entitled NANCY GRACE NUDE, do not open it. It’s not a virus. It really is Nancy Grace nude. @NancyGraceHLN @WWE

    While I don’t want to defend this woman too much. I’m wondering if she’s just the face/presenter/host and it’s her stupid team feeding her false research that she assumes are fact. I guess that’s the problem with being a news reporter in television. They present information and people assume they’re the ones coming up with that. If a person doesn’t know anything about wrestling and you tell her that Owen Hart, Chris Candido and Bruiser Brody died from steroids she probably would assume its facts.

      She used to be a prosecutor, so the woman is not stupid. Don’t think for a second that she’s not the one actively making the decisions to spread hate, fear, racism and intolerance through half truths and false facts. The woman was regularly reprimanded for being a bully and twisting facts while in the courtroom.

    As with Matt below, I will stay professional and not say exactly what I think of Nancy Grace, but I will say how disgusted I was with the whole thing. She had no clue what she was talking about, talked over DDP, and tried to act as though this was a whole new groundbreaking idea. Hello, we know this has happened, this is nothing new! I’ve never been impressed with her, but she really showed what a jackass she truly is with this segment.

  • Ryan Plague

    what more do you expect from her ? she does no research on things she doesn’t understand, besides this ordeal, go back and look at her coverage of the deal involving the singer from As I Lay Dying, now what he did is disgusting and horrible, but she consistently called then a Christian rock band, when in fact if she did her research she would see that the singer (his name escapes me at the moment) quit religion and denounced god all together in 2006

    • Jim Evans

      Ryan Plague—-His name is Tim Lambesis.

  • Zoie Falcona

    I have the feeling that it was the NETWORK that pushed her to do it.

  • RIP Warrior

    I agree she is a ratings wh*re and will spew all kinds of filth to get them! IGNORE HER!

  • jane goethel

    Nancy Grace is nothing but a basher. Gave up reporting the news factually and does not but bash people now. DDP should have put her In the Diamond Cutter

  • K!NG

    Im suprised 1080I can support that much weight on HD. Congrats.

    Do everyone here a favor and delete this article. Nancy Grace is a hate mongering, malice spewing hag who only has an audience because she engages in bullying and scare tactics. Ignoring the fact that she is covering a wrestling related issue and ignoring the fact that this is a professional wrestling website, as a news site, as journalists you owe it to yourselves and to your audience to refrain from helping her spread her vitriolic message. Even if you disagree, you’re still assisting in helping her get attention and that is something no one should do.

    What a bitch.

  • Jim Evans

    I sent Nancy Grace a Tweet, telling her what i thought of her, but i cannot post it here. If she wants to interview someone about Pro Wrestling, it should of been New Jack.
