Twitter Lost Its Mind Over WWE's Diamond Dallas Page Cursing Out a Host During a Live ESPN Interview

"Just watched DDP curse and threaten to kill Dan Le Batard on TV."

Those familiar with Dan Le Batard know the longtime sports writer and personality has an aggressive affinity for getting the truth on classic stories — like last May, when he got Fat Joe to confirm on ESPN's Highly Questionable that the New York Knicks' player that the Notorious B.I.G. was referencing on "I Got a Story to Tell" was Anthony Mason.

Well, Le Batard might have pushed his guest on ESPN's The Dan Le Batard Show With Stugotz on Tuesday too far ... and he got cursed out for it.

Speaking to WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page on his live ESPN radio show, which is also televised, Le Batard pressed the former Superstar for the truth about his beefs with fellow former wrestlers Ric Flair and Scott Steiner.

"You tried to rip his eyes out!" Le Batard screamed at DDP, who called into the show, referring to an infamous backstage incident between Page and Steiner back in 2001 when the two were in the now-defunct World Championship Wrestling. "Or did he try to rip your eyes? Who tried to rip whose eyes out there? Somebody tried to rip somebody’s eyes out there."

Page, who was just inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last weekend and is the face of his own DDP Yoga brand, tried to stay calm.

"You can't rev me up, dude," he told Le Batard. "Are you serious?"

Still, Le Batard persisted, and asked DDP the same question yet again.

That's all it took for Page to lose his cool, calling Le Batard a "monkey," before allegedly telling the host "f*** you" and threatening to kill him. Sheesh! Just like that, all that peaceful DDP Yoga stuff that he was preaching went out the window for his old, savage wrestling persona.

Well, for what it's worth, Twitter loved every second of it. Here are the best reactions to DDP going off on Dan Le Batard. Bang!

  • Well ... This Escalated From 0 to 100 Real Quick

    Diamond Dallas Page was livid!

  • People Couldn't Believe What They Just Witnessed on live TV


  • Yeah, that Serene DDP Yoga Persona Was Quickly Dominated by His Old Wrestling Character

    He wasn't having it.

  • As Heated as Page Got, Wrestling Fans Still Wondered If It Was An Act or Not

    Hmm ... it's hard to tell with wrestlers sometimes.

  • Who got the best of this exchange here? Was It Le Batard?

    Le Batard didn't seem shook.

  • Or Was It DDP?

    With years of cutting wrestling promos, Page could've very well been laughing the moment off as soon as the interview ended.

  • Or was this more a case of DDP getting carried away?

    It's possible.

  • Does the fact that today is Page's Birthday make this funnier?

    As he used to say throughout his wrestling career ... "BANG!!"
