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.
