The Most Unflattering Thing To Happen To DDP Since Being Forced To Stalk The Undertaker’s Wife

Posted in Basketball, Professional Wrestling at 10:21 pm by

Thanks to a succession of hot tips from CSTB readers and contributors, we’ve managed to (mostly) keep up with the post-WCW/WWE career of Diamond Dallas Page (above), last seen around these parts hawking his Yoga-4-Dudes program. Or maybe it was threatening to sue Jay-Z. So hard to remember.

None of those incidents, however, were nearly memorable enough to prevent the following exchange between the San Antonio Express’ Jeff McDonald and Spurs F Matt Bonner (above, “a notorious sandwich hound) upon the latter’s first visit to NYC’s famed Carnegie Deli earlier this week :

He gave the food an A-plus. His only regret was that he didn’t bring a photo of himself to hang on the restaurant’s renowned wall of fame ” especially after seeing a picture of washed-up wrestler Diamond Dallas Page sprinkled among the glitterati.

œSurely, I’m more relevant than Diamond Dallas Page at this point, he said.

I’m not gonna set up a readers poll just to count a dozen votes, but I have a sneaking suspicion The Red Rocket would come out on the short end of such a vote.

    Well, unsolicited, and actually from your post, clearly unneeded — I’m voting for DDP on principle. No one visiting the Carnegie cares who DDP or Bonner are, but the odds of Bonner staging a post-40 comeback are pretty low. DDP has career future options in managing, heel color commentary, training ring valets, more gender specific yoga products, and if I can go by the Fabulous Moolah’s return to the ring in her 70s, a probable rematch in 30 years with Scott Steiner.

    I’m wondering if….

    A. Does Ed Asner’s photo hang in the Carnegie Deli?

    B. Would he be more upset if DDPs or Bonners picture hung near his?

    Asner has two photos up at Casa Bianca Pizza. One from his Lou Grant days, one recent. I admire the consistency.
