Diamond Dallas Page (born Page Joseph Falkinburg, Jr.; April 5, 1956, name legally changed to "Dallas Page" in 2003) 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.

* TrueCompanions: DDP has a lot of friends in the industry, but he's particularly close to Wrestling/JakeRoberts and Wrestling/ScottHall, both of whom he invited to come and live together with him (in his "Accountability Crib") to help them fight off their crippling substance and alcohol addictions and put their lives back together. Both men are unashamed to admit that DDP unambiguously saved their lives.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: One of the many factors that sunk WCW was the gimmick of using celebrities in actual matches, and worse, as PPV main events. While Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff deservedly get some heat for that (Jay Leno?), one of them was actually the brainchild of DDP himself. According to Page's own admission on ''Literature/TheRiseAndFallOfWCW'', it was DDP who suggested the match of teaming him and [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Karl Malone]] against Hogan and [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Dennis Rodman]] to Eric Bischoff, though in all fairness to DDP, Karl Malone didn't actually suck in the ring all things considered.

* {{Badass}}: Page only had a few months of training before his first match. Afterwards, one of his opponents began to argue with Page about how some of the match had gone, but since he'd been around the business for several years as a manager, Page wouldn't back down. His opponent threw a punch, Page took it, grabbed the guy in a front facelock and choked him out. Reportedly Page was so angry the other wrestlers in the dressing room had to pull him off the guy, though Page's reaction to the end of the fight was something along the lines of MyGodWhatHaveIDone
