"Diamond" Dallas Page (born Page Joseph Falkinburg, Jr. on April 5, 1956) is an American professional wrestler best known for his stint in Wrestling/{{WCW}}. He'd actually debuted as a manager in the [[Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation AWA]] in the 80s, but some time after he showed up in WCW, he made the transition to wrestler. Gradually, over the next decade, he became one of the biggest names WCW had to offer, with a showy personality and one of the most popular {{Finishing Move}}s in the business (the Diamond Cutter), until the company's buyout in 2001.

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: When DDP told Michael P.S. Hayes that he was making the transition to in-ring performer at the age of 35, Hayes responded by belly laughing in his face. Triple H recalls seeing Page in the Power Plant and thinking "what is this old guy doing here?" Until he saw Page's work ethic and perseverance. Very few people initially had faith in Page's ability to make it (and somewhat justifiably so), even Page himself only expected to last five years in the ring and never get even close to the world championship. Needless to say, he eventually proved his naysayers wrong and exceeded even his own expectations.
* {{Jerkass}}: His character was one pre-[=nWo=].
