On the latest DDP Snake Pit podcast, Diamond Dallas Page and Conrad Thomspon discussed some of the creative changes in WWE. DDP also covered some other topics, including what led to Enzo Amore's WWE release.
DDP talking about meeting Logan Paul:
“We were in the elevator and I could tell that he wasn't a fan from being a kid. He shook my hand and I said, ‘Let’s do a picture.’ I said, ‘Let’s do the diamond cutter (hand sign)', and he said, ‘No, I don’t do that.’ The only other person to say no to me doing the diamond cutter was Val Kilmer, but every single other person has done it with me. He said, ‘It’s a gang sign. I got sued over that.’ I understood him because a guy like him is in such a position, I mean, he’s up there. Last thing he needs is wrestling, but it's another thing that brings him into the mainstream again, doing something else that’s a spectacle. We have a humongous audience. But he wouldn’t do anything because, a gang sign, and he’s been sued over it before. I said, ‘Don’t worry about it’, so we took the picture.”
DDP said he knew the story of the incident where Enzo was accused of rape in 2018:
“I know the story. The woman who said he, she didn't use the word rape. I don't know what she said or what exactly the words were on Twitter. Enzo was let go, suspended at that point, and then let go for an allegation. Did you know the cops not only never arrested him, he never even got a call from the cops. There was a guy that came out, and the girl was a hooker, but there was a guy that came out that knew her and she said a bunch of stuff in texts about Enzo, that basically, I don’t remember the exact content, but he put it all out there and Enzo was completely off the hook because he didn’t do anything.”
