During the 2001 WCW – WWE invasion angle, former WCW star and current WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page was involved in an angle with The Undertaker and ‘Taker’s then-wife Sara, during which DDP stalked the WWE couple.
In a new interview with Give Me Sport, DDP revealed that he was not originally supposed to play the stalker character, and it was instead pitched to be played by Steve Austin.
On the angle itself, DDP had the following to say:
“I hated the idea at first. I’m trying to be a team player and this is Hollywood so to speak, we’re trying to blur the lines of reality and not reality – you’re not really stalking her – but that’s the role you want me to play in a world where some people believe what the sh*t is!
“When you’re doing something like a stalker idea, they built this storyline and couldn’t get anybody to do it – that’s the real deal. They wanted [Steve] Austin to do it. And Austin is like ‘f*uck that!’ and he told me about that later and I was like ‘you couldn’t have called me up and said that to me?!’

“But, the bottom line was, I thought they were trying to make us going in there. Because there was no more WCW, but that was not the deal.
“The deal was, and it had nothing to do with me personally, it could have been Sting or Goldberg or whoever – whoever it was was going to get fed to whoever it was in the top angle because it was ego and it was business.”
