DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE
Raven then started to put his ugly head into the feud. Raven and his flock attacked DDP at Nitro, March 2nd, when Benoit came to the rescue, but DDP hit Benoit, and a slugfest erupted, but when Raven re-entered the ring they attacked him in union.
In a tag team match featuring Benoit and DDP vs Raven and Saturn things turned ugly, Benoit had Raven in the Crippler Crossface, when DDP used his Diamond Cutter on Saturn, they hit Benoit, who got mad and started attacking DDP, which brought more heat to the Three Way Dance. At Uncensored in an ECW style match the three opponents clashed, but Diamond Dallas Page where able to win the match when he Diamond Cut Raven through a table, after the match Benoit helped DDP to his feet.
But Raven and DDP aren't finished. Dallas was at the show MTV Live, when suddenly Raven attacked DDP and took the US Title with him. Page has since stalked Raven to get the title back, but Raven is only interested in talking about the past, and how Raven believes Page betrayed him. Page came close to get the title back on two occasions, but Raven got away. The two will clash at Spring Stampede, which will be interesting.
Dallas and Raven got it on at Spring Stampede, it was a very interesting match, which involved almost all of the members of Raven's flock. In the end though a new member of the flock, who was dressed as a WCW crew member, nailed DDP with a sign, which was followed up with a Evenflow DDT on a kitchen sink. Without the US Title DDP needs to set himself some new goals.
The feud against Raven will continue for some time, and it looks like DDP will team with Goldberg, who also have problems with the Flock. At Slamboree DDP and Raven will clash in a Cage Match.
In a Bowery Death Match in an enclosed Cage at Slamboree Dallas and Raven clashed. It was a typical brawl with some great high spots, and even though the flock interfered Page came out on top, and now it looks like he is ready for bigger and better things.
DDP vs Hogan
The following day at Nitro, Page was interviewed, here he stated that he wanted revenge on Hogan and the nWo for the things that have been done to him over the last year, interesting! At Thunder The Giant wasn't too pleased with Sting's decision to join the Wolf Pack, so he declared Brian Adams as his new tag team partner and champion and challenged Lex Luger and a partner of his choice. Lex Luger picked Diamond Dallas Page, they won the match, but not the title since JJ Dillon decided that the Giant didn't have the authorities to declare others as champions.
Because of Page's help at Thunder, the Wolf Pack offered him a spot even though not every one wanted him in, but before he could make accept, he was knocked down by Dennis Rodman and Hollywood Hogan with chairs. At Nitro, June 15, Randy Savage admitted that it was him, who was against Page joining the Wolf Pack, so to see if DDP had, what it takes, he challenged him to a cage match. DDP accepted, and was on his way to victory in a hard fought match, when nWo Hollywood attacked and punked both men, and referee Roddy Piper, who also attacked both men during the contest, but also was on the receiving end.
The war with Hogan and Rodman continued and got some new heat when DDP recruited Karl Malone to face Hogan and Rodman at Bash at the Beach. They appeared together on the Tonight Show, hosted by Jay Leno, and came out when Hogan and Rodman called Malone a wimp. The feud with Hogan is heating up with different name callings on Nitro, the best part was when DDP said he was sick and tired of Hogan's attitude and work ethic (what work ethic?).
DDP and Malone went after Hogan on the June 29th episode of Nitro, Malone got the best of Hogan with a bodyslam and some clotheslines. DDP and Malone also helped Goldberg to win the WCW World Title from Hogan, when they secured that Hogan's henchmen didn't interfere in the match. Dallas and Malone lost their match at Bash at the Beach thanks to the Disciple.
On Nitro the following day, the Disciple challenged DDP to a match, which he of course answered and won. After the match Hogan brained DDP with a chair. DDP got a taste of revenge when he later on Diamond Cut Eric Bischoff, but only to be beaten on by Hogan. Finally this feud is going somewhere.
At Nitro, July 20, Diamond Dallas Page together with Bret Hart was named the top contenders for the US Title and fight for it later that night. During the show Page was attacked when Bret called him out, but Page made it to the match later that night, but he was limping and was bandaged, so he was easy pickings for Bret, who made DDP submit to the Sharpshooter.
The following week at Nitro, Page revealed that it was Hogan, who attaked him the week before. DDP then issued a challenge to Hogan, the match took place later that night and DDP fought hard and hit Hogan with the Diamond Cutter, but then the ring was filled with nWo and Wolfpack members.
But Dallas isn't finished with Hogan or his cronies yet, when Hogan and Bischoff took over the Tonight Show hosted by Jay Leno, it was too much for Page, who chased off Hogan and Bischoff. Hogan then challenged both Page and Leno to a match at Road Wild to go up against the team of Hogan and Bischoff, which DDP and Leno accepted, when DDP offered to train Leno. Personally I think it is a step downward for wrestling, when non-wrestlers step in the ring, and especially when it is the main event for Road Wild, but in opinion it tells more about WCW and their faith in their wrestlers to sell a pay-per-view event.
Page had a big problem at Nitro, August 3, when the nWo with Bischoff and Hogan in front started taunting Kimberly, this brought out Page, but the numbers were too strong and he received a chokeslam from the Giant. At Thunder, Page got a taste of revenge, when he attacked Bischoff during nWo Night C(r)ap and destroyed the set. At Road Wild Dallas as usually worked his ass off, and in the end it was crowned with a victory after Kevin Eubanks delivered the Diamond Cutter to Bischoff and Leno covered him.
August 17, at Nitro the main event for Fall Brawl was announced, the captains was going to be Diamond Dallas Page, Kevin Nash, and Hollywood Hogan, the winner would get a shot at the World Title at Halloween Havoc. Later that night DDP announced that he already had recruited a member for his team and then put on a challenge to Bret Hart. During the match Bret Hart used brass knuckles on DDP and then went on to put them in DDP's tights, the referee then noticed the knuckles and disqualified Page.
Page has assembled his team for the War Games and it consists of Roddy Piper and the Warrior, and together they cleaned the ring of both nWo Hollywood and the Wolfpack at Nitro, August 24. At Nitro, August 31, Nash gave DDP until next week to find out if he wanted to join the Wolfpack or not, but before DDP could get to the point he was attacked by the Giant.
The next week Dallas took the offer to join the Wolfpack as a threat and stated that he didn't trust Nash, because of his past in nWo, neither could he understand how Sting and Lex Luger could do it. This brought out the three members of the Wolfpack, Luger tried to persuade DDP, but to no avail. Sting then suggested a tag match pitting himself and Luger against DDP and Rowdy Piper, which was accepted. Piper wasn't too thrilled with the idea since he didn't think DDP should make matches for him, and the two were argueing when the match started. During the match Nash came to the ring and made short work of Piper before Jackknifing DDP. Team WCW have problems, DDP and Piper aren't thinking the same, but they have promised each other that at Fall Brawl it's every man for himself.
Diamond Dallas Page entered the War Games Match as the first man together with Bret Hart, when Roddy Piper came to the ring he attacked everybody including Page. Hogan then came to the ring and used a weapon to knock everybody down, but the end came when the Warrior went after Hogan, Dallas used the Diamond Cutter to pin Stevie Ray. Dallas will now face Goldberg for the WCW World Title at Halloween Havoc.
DDP against Goldberg
At Nitro, September 21, Page was challenged by Alex Wright for the shot at Goldberg, but DDP eventually hit Wright with the Diamond Cutter and won the match, afterwards Page promised Goldberg a "bumpy-bumpy ride" at Hallween Havoc.
Thunder, October 1, DDP first defeated Lodi, then he helped Goldberg retain the World Title, when Goldberg was about to be beaten by Raven. After the rescue mission DDP and Goldberg went nose to nose. The continuing saga with DDP, Goldberg, Raven and Kanyon continued at Nitro, October 5, DDP fought Kanyon, Raven and Lodi then hit the ring and started their attack on Pge, this brought out Goldberg, who cleared the ring, Goldberg and DDP then went nose to nose until JJ Dillon got them to back off.
Nitro, October 18, Chris Jericho ranted about DDP, this brougth out Page who challenged Jericho to a match. The match took place later that night, and was an excellent showing of both men's talents. Jericho had also ranted about Goldberg and this brought out the champion during the match, Goldber speared Jericho and went for the Jackhammer, but DDP snatched Jericho and delivered a Diamond Cutter, DDP and Goldberg then went nose to nose.
At Halloween Havoc, DDP and Goldberg pulled on a great show. Page tried everything on the huge monster, but wasn't able to get the duke after he hit Goldberg with the Diamond Cutter. Goldberg then used his power to get Page in the Jackhammer for the win. After the match the two combatants embraced.
Page and Bret Hart settle their score
The next night at Nitro, DDP showed that he could bounce back from the defeate at Halloween Havoc, as he defeated Bret Hart to win the WCW US Title. It was a good match, but afterwards Bret attacked DDP using a chair, but Goldberg came to the rescue.
Dallas made his return to wrestling at Nitro, November 16, Bret Hart had just taken out Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko, when DDP made his attack. After this DDP stated that he would take on Bret Hart at World War III. At Thunder, Page once again stopped Bret from doing more damage to Konnan.
At World War III, Dallas and Bret had a hard fought match. Bret used his cunning tactics with foreign objects and run-ins. The nWo referee came to the ring and walloped Page with a chair, Bret then used his foreign object and slapped DDP in the Sharpshooter. The nWo referee then declared Bret as the winner, but Micky Jay said that the match had to continue, which DDP took advantage of as he rolled up Bret for the pin.
The next night at Nitro DDP once again stopped Bret from injuring another wrestler, but DDP also took a chair shot himself, before he hoisted Bret out of the ring. Page then stated that he would wrestle Bret at the next Nitro.
A Giant Problem
November 30, 1998, at Nitro, Bret tried to back out of the match due to injury, but Dallas provoked him, and they agreed to a No Disqualification Match. During the match the Giant came to the ring and chokeslammed DDP several times, Bret then put DDP in the Sharpshooter for the win.
Diamond Dallas Page wanted to get back at the Giant, and his first step of revenge happened at Thunder, were DDP used a chair to brain the Giant. At Nitro, Bret challenged DDP to a match, but it was only a setup for an attack from the Giant, who chokeslammed DDP through a wooden platform.
Page got his revenge on the Giant at Starrcade, December 27, the Giant totally manhandled Page during most of the match, during the match, Bret Hart accidentally nailed the Giant with a chair, but Page didn't get the pin. The Giant tried to chokeslam Page, but he shifted the balance and delivered the Diamond Cutter for the win. At Nitro, January 4, 1999, DDP took on Brian Adams, who was easily defeated.
Nothing finer than Scott Steiner
At the following Nitro, Dallas took on Scott Steiner, before the match Steiner had made remarks about Kimberly. The match was marred by outside interference from Vincent and Buff Bagwell, who threw powder in the face of DDP, Steiner then nailed DDP with a chair and put on the Steiner Recliner for the win.
It looks like Dallas will be locked in a feud with Scott Steiner for a while, because at Nitro, January 18, Steiner harrassed Kimberly on several occasions. At Thunder, January 21, DDP addressed the situation, and he was really pissed and told Steiner to stay away from Kimberly.
At Nitro, February 1, Scott Steiner again harassed Kimberly, which ended with Kimberly getting injured. Later Kidman told DDP what had happened, this got DDP to call out Scott Steiner, but instead Disco Inferno showed up and told Dallas that Steiner wanted a match at SuperBrawl, Disco then slapped DDP, who then destroyed Disco. At Thunder DDP took out his frustrations on Glacier, who was more or less torn apart.
The next week on Nitro, DDP defeated Kenny Kaos but the feud with Scott Steiner took another ugly turn. DDP were watching the backs of the Nitro Girls to make sure that Steiner didn't interfere. But later Steiner and Kimberly were about to get into a car together, but DDP stopped them which lead to a brawl with Steiner. Kimberly got in the car and so did Steiner, who then started to drive away, but he turned around and threw Kimberly out of the care, resulting in Kimberly getting knocked out and the paramedics placed a neckbrace on her and she was taken to hospital.
At Nitro, February 15, it was revealed that Kimberly had suffered a mild concussion and facial lacerations and that DDP had taken her to a place where no one would find her. But Scott Steiner also had some tricks up his sleeve as he wanted to take Page to court for injuring him. At Thunder Scott Steiner added a stipulation to his matchup with DDP at SuperBrawl, if Steiner could defeated DDP he would get Kimberly for 30 days, interesting.
At SuperBrawl, Scott Steiner got the attention of Page, when he stated that it wasn't his fault that Kimberly liked him. Dallas then stormed the ring and completely dominated Steiner, Page had Steiner under control with his intensity, but this got Buff Bagwell to the ring and together with Steiner they tried to surround the ring. Dallas wanted them get it on, Buff and Steiner then dominated Page for a while. The interference from Buff Bagwell proved to be the turning point in the match, and after Steiner put DDP in the Steiner Recliner it was over, though Page didn't quit, he passed out and was wheeled out on a stretcher.
A heel turn
Nitro, March 29, DDP returned and was looking for revenge, but due to the President Ric Flair it was not to happen unless he could beat Hogan. Further more Flair wanted to be Page's manager for the match, which didn't sit well with DDP. The Canadian fans didn't appreciate DDP, which got him to "snap" and talk trash to the audience - proving that he indeed is a mark for his own career. The match was a brawl all over the arena and included DDP and Hogan destroying the set of Nitro. Flair interfered on DDP's behalf, but he didn't want any part of it. The match ended when Flair tried to nail Hogan with a chair, but instead hit DDP. At Thunder, DDP defeated Horace.
The next week on Nitro during an confrontation between Ric Flair and Hollywood Hogan, DDP made his way out and wanted to be in it, Goldberg also wanted the same, so a four way dance was announced. During the match, which was one big brawl, Nash interfered causing Goldberg to win by disqualification. Sting then descended from the ceiling and pointed at a screen, here Randy Savage announced that at Spring Stampede a four way dance would take place between Sting, Hogan, Flair, and DDP with Savage as the special referee.
Diamond Dallas Page was really pumped up for the four way dance, where everybody was taking on everybody. Hogan was eventually carted off due to injury, which DDP helped to aggravate as he used the figure four leglock around the ring post, so it ended with Page, Flair and Sting taking on each other. During the match Flair had Sting in the figure four leglock, but Sting made it to the ropes, but Savage heaved them to the centre of the ring where he blasted Flair with an elbow drop, when Flair got up Page nailed him with the Diamond Cutter to win the match and the WCW World Title in a fantastic match. Since the incident with Hogan, Page has more or less been proud of doing it.
After the match Randy Savage congratulated DDP, but also stated that DDP owed him a title shot. Shortly after Scott Steiner attacked Page, this was shown the next day at Nitro. Sting also wanted a shot at the title, but since DDP would fight Scott Steiner at Nitro, Page couldn't give it to Sting. Later Ric Flair wanted to strip Page of the title, but due to Randy Savage it didn't happen. Kevin Nash stated that he would face Page at Slamboree for the title since he struck a deal with Flair - so Page really have some challenges ahead.
Diamond Dallas Page came to the ring with Kimberly for his match against Steiner, the match was hard fought and went all around the ring, eventually Steiner removed the top turnbuckle and began slamming DDP's face and back into the exposed turnbuckle, this got Kimberly to react as she nailed Steiner with a chair, which let Dallas execute the Diamond Cutter to retain the World Title.
At Thunder, Stevie Ray challenged Page for the title and DDP was only glad to give it. Page had to deal with the other members of the nWo black and with, but still he was able to defeat Stevie Ray in a fair encounter to hold on to the gold.
At Nitro, April 19, Goldberg got in Page's face during an interview and the two agreed to a match. The match was hard fought and Page showed some new signs of himself during it. Page came close to pinning the tough guy when he nailed him with the Diamond Cutter, but Goldberg kicked out and then nailed both Page and the referee with a Spear. Goldberg then nailed DDP with the Jackhammer, but there was no one to make the count, so Page used a foreign object on Goldberg and then started working on Goldberg's leg, he was just about to put him in the figure four around the ring post, when Kevin Nash interfered, but rightfully so Page then nailed him with the belt.
Nitro, April 26, proved to be a busy night for Diamond Dallas Page, who was booed heavily during the entire show, especially when he wouldn't grant Sting a title shot, but commissioner Piper stated that he head 45 minutes to prepare for it. The two men had a great match, but Sting won it after he countered the Diamond Cutter with the Scorpion Deathdrop to take the win and the WCW World Title. But Kevin Nash, who saw the gold slip out of his finger then challenged Sting, Goldberg, and DDP to a four way dance later in the show.
The match saw many near falls, but Goldberg had the match won, when suddenly Randy Savage appeared and threw in some brass knuckles to Page, who nailed Kevin Nash with them to take the win and become WCW World Champion for a second time. Page quickly exited through the crowd. At Thunder Diamond Dallas Page was challenged by Bam Bam Bigelow, DDP accepted. The match was fought hardcore style with alot of foreign objects being used. During the match DDP nailed Bam Bam with the Diamond Cutter, but was too tired to get the pin. Randy Savage then made his way down and nailed Bigelow with the Big Elbow to let Page gain the pinfall. Wonder what kind of relationship Page and Savage have.
At Nitro, May 3, Ric Flair wanted the WCW World Title and Page granted him a shot. Page also cut an interview, where he stated that he was a legend. Of course the match was being officiated by Flair's personal referee Charles Robinson, who allowed Flair to do everything. Flair got DDP in the figure leglock, Savage's valet Gorgeous George then took Robinson out, this gave Page the time to escape the figure four. Savage then handed brass knuckles to Page, who knocked out Flair to retain the WCW World Title.
Slamboree, May 9, 1999, Page and Nash clashed for the WCW World Title. The match went back and forth with neither man able to get the advantage. The match then went outside of the ring, where Page nailed Nash with the Diamond Cutter, but was unable to get the pin. Kevin Nash then gained the advantage and nailed Page with the Snake Eyes, a big boot, and then planted him with the Jackknife Powerbomb. Page's saviour Randy Savage then showed up and attacked Nash, causing a disqualification, this didn't sit well with Eric Bischoff, who ordered Savage away from the ring and the match to restart. The match then went back and forth again until Nash kicked a chair into DDP's face and then nailed him with the Jackknife to end Page's second World Title regain.
At Nitro, May 17, DDP arrived together with Ric Flair. Ric ordered a match between DDP and Kevin Nash. Page then called out Bam Bam Bigelow to watch his back. DDP and Nash delivered a solid match with a lot of interference, Bigelow tried to mess in the match, but didn't succeed. The match was then thrown out of the window and Randy Savage together with DDP and Bigelow then took out the champion.
DDP started Nitro, May 24, by attacking Raven and Saturn with a 2X4, while his tag team partner Bam Bam Bigelow were distracting them. Later in the show Page and Bigelow helped Ric Flair beat down Roddy Piper during an interview session, for their help Page and Bigelow was awarded with a title shot a the WCW Tag Team Champions - Raven and Saturn at the Great American Bash. Later that night Page and Bigelow teamed up with Flair once again to go up against Piper, Benoit and Malenko, but Raven and Saturn showed up and chased them to the back. In the locker room, DDP was knocked down by Hogan, who used a chair to get the job done.
At Thunder, DDP was having a conversation with Ric Flair, when Chris Benoit interrupted and started to talk trash to Flair, when Benoit turned his back on Page, DDP took him down. Later in the show Page collided with Benoit in a match. Benoit controlled the early going, but Page finally got his act together and started to dominated, but Benoit captured Page in the Crippler Crossface, when Bam Bam Bigelow to the rescue. The two then finished off Benoit with a combination of a Diamond Cutter and Greeting from Asbury Park, Flair also made his way down and delivered a low blow to Benoit.
At Nitro, May 31, Page and Bigelow attacked Raven, they stuffed him in a dumpster and slammed the lid on his head. Later Page and Bigelow demanded their shot at the title the same night, which was accepted by Saturn and Kanyon, since Raven was taken to hospital. Page also made some references to Hogan. DDP and Bigelow also took out Kanyon before the match took place, so it ended up being a handicap match against Saturn. The match was pretty good and Saturn fought well, during the match Kanyon returned, but Page floored him with a discus punch to take the victory and the WCW Tag Team Title.
At Thunder, DDP and Bam Bam came to the rescue of Flair, who was about to get pinned by Chris Benoit, Page and Bigelow then delivered the same move to Benoit as the week earlier.
At Nitro, June 7, Page and Bigelow went up against Ric Flair and Chris Benoit. It was clearly an attempt by Flair to get on Benoit, because when Benoit went for a tag, Flair withdrew his hand and left the ring. Saturn then came to the ring and he got the hot tag from Benoit, Saturn then nailed Page with the DVD to score the pinfall. Saturn and Benoit celebrated that they had won the title, and Kanyon also came to the ring, but he ended up nailing Saturn. DDP and Bigelow joined in on the beating, and together with Kanyon, Page and Bam Bam walked to the back with the belts.
At Thunder, June 10, it was announced that president Ric Flair had returned the WCW Tag Team Title to Page and Bigelow, since Saturn didn't have anything to do in the match. Page and Kanyon also delivered an interview where Page stated that either two men from the WCW's version of the Triple Threat, called the Triad, could defend the title. Later that night, DDP helped Kanyon in his match against Saturn, this brought out Benoit and the match was turned into a tag team affair for the WCW Tag Team Title. After the match had been in see-saw mode for a while, Benoit pinned Kanyon for the victory.
The Triad got a chance to recapture the belts at the Great American Bash, June 13. Page teamed up with Kanyon to take on Benoit and Saturn. Page and Kanyon worked very well together and dominated the match. After DDP had used the Diamond Cutter on Saturn, Benoit caught Kanyon in the Crippler Crossface, but Page and Bigelow beat him up and delivered their combination move, they then rolled Kanyon over Benoit to score the victory and the WCW Tag Team Title.
The Triad have worked well with President Ric Flair, they proved it the following day at Nitro, when they stopped Benoit and Saturn from helping Dean Malenko and Buff Bagwell, who were getting punked by Flair and his associates. Of course this lead to a match later that night between the team of Page, Kanyon, Flair, and Piper versus the team of Benoit, Malenko, Saturn and Bagwell. The match was pretty solid and went back and forth, with all the participants breaking up the pin attempts. The match ended when Buff pinned Flair.
The Triad is one awesome threesome and they proved it again on Nitro, June 21. When Kanyon had problems in his match against Booker T, Page and Bigelow came to the ring and took care of Booker. Later the Triad took on Rey Mysterio Jr. and Konnan, during the match the members of the Triad changed places when things didn't went their way. The match ended when Curt Hennig, Bobby Duncum, Jr., Barry Windham, and Kendall Windham attacked followed by Saturn and Benoit.
The next week on Nitro, the Triad took on Buff Bagwell and Dean Malenko. Again the triple teaming lived up to the expectations and won the match. Page also helped Bam Bam defeat Hak. At Thunder, Page went up against Saturn, the two had a great match. But even though Kanyon tried to help Page, it was Chris Benoit who nailed DDP with a diving headbutt to get Saturn the victory. The feud with Benoit and Saturn continued at Nitro, here the Triad lost to the Benoit, Saturn, and Malenko in a six man tag match. At Thunder, Kanyon lost to Chris Benoit, Page then evened the score by nailing Benoit with a Diamond Cutter.
At Bash at the Beach, the Triad made some mistakes - like blinding the wrong person, and nailing the wrong person, but still the Triad kept together and defeated Chris Benoit and Saturn in a good encounter.
The next night at Nitro, Page took on Booker T, and the worked an excellent match. However Booker T proved very strong, so Kanyon and Bam Bam Bigelow taped him to the top rope, which caused the disqualification, this brought Booker's brother Stevie Ray to the rescue, so it looks like the Triad will tussle with a reunited Harlem Heat.
At Nitro, July 19, Kanyon took on Stevie Ray, but of course Page and Bam Bam stuck their noses in the match, but when the Triad tried to tape him to the ropes, Booker T made the save.
It looks like the Triad will team with Ric Flair in his quest against the team of Shane Douglas, Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit and Saturn. At Thunder the Triad took care of Benoit and Saturn, who wanted to help out Malenko in his match against Flair, but Page, Kanyon and Bigelow took care of them and assisted Flair in his victory. At Nitro, July 26, Page helped David Flair defeat Benoit as he smacked Benoit with a tag team title belt, before the ring was flooded with members of each fraction.
At Thunder Diamond Dallas Page, Ric Flair, and Kanyon took on the trio of Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko and Saturn. The heels won after Bam Bam interfered, Shane Douglas then raced down, but at that time it was too late. The Triad also heated up their feud with Booker T and Stevie Ray at Thunder, as the two reformed the Harlem Heat. Nitro, July 2, the Triad went up against Harlem Heat in a non-title match, but as Page wanted to interfere, Chris Benoit raced down and stopped him, probably because Page had stated that David Flair was a better US Champion than Benoit would ever be, and because of some rather crude remarks about Benoit's mother. The two got it on later in a match, where both men showed what they are worth. David Flair made his way down during the match, but Benoit took care of him and shortly after rolled Page up for the victory. After the match Dallas and Flair took out their frustrations on Benoit.
At Thunder, Page started the evening by saving Bam Bam Bigelow from getting pinned by Booker T, this brought Booker's brother Stevie Ray to the ring, but together with David Flair, Page got him down. The Triad and Flair then had their fun by spraypainting the backs of Harlem Heat. Later in the evening Page went up against Chris Benoit, the match started rather sudden, when Dallas again blasted Benoit's mother. The match was much alike their encounter at Nitro, but this time David Flair threw in his US Title belt to Page, before he got pasted. Benoit then went for his Swan Dive Headbutt, but Page shielded himself with the belt and could then easily pin an unconscious Benoit.
At Nitro, August, David Flair lost his US Title to Chris Benoit, the Triad tried to interfere in time, but failed. After the match Page attacked, but after the attack Benoit challenged Page to a no DQ match at Road Wild and mocked DDP by stating that he would two time, two time, two time kick DDP's a$$.
At Road Wild, Kanyon and Bam Bam Bigelow went up against the Harlem Heat for the WCW Tag Team Title. The Triad members lost the match even though Page tried to interfere. Later Diamond Dallas Page clashed with Chris Benoit in the much anticipated no disqualification match for the US Title.

When Benoit started to get the initiative Kanyon and Bam Bam Bigelow made their way down, but Chris was able to handle the situation and won the match with the Swan Dive Headbutt.
During Nitro, August 16, Kidman was being interviewed, here the youngster proclaimed that Kimberly was his favourite Nitro Girl, this of course brought an enraged DDP to the ring to confront him. Page slapped Kidman and a match was underway. Diamond Dallas Page manhandled the cruiserweight, but didn't go for the pin, when Page was ready to finish the job - Kidman rolled him up for the victory. Page then took out his frustrations on Kidman, which brought Kimberly to the ring and after a while she escorted DDP to the back.
Page still has a job to finish with Kidman, whom he attacked on Nitro, August 23, until Goldberg arrived. Kanyon and Bam Bam then shoved up and they taunted Goldberg, but security intervened. Later in an interview Page challenged Goldberg to go one on one. Page had a plan for the match, so when Goldberg made his way out Bam Bam attacked him, but it had no affect. When Goldberg hit the ring, he made short work of Kanyon and Bigelow, while Page escaped through the crowd. Goldberg then challenged the entire Triad to a match.
At Thunder Page issued challenges left and right to Sting, Goldberg, and Hulk Hogan, later in the show DDP made short work of Chavo Guerrero.
At Nitro Page and the Triad interfered in a confrontation between Hogan and Sting, which later got Hogan to challenge DDP to a match, but he settled with teaming up with Goldberg against the Triad. The Triad had a solid match against the two faces, who ended up with a win in their column as Hogan pinned Bigelow, however Page got to Goldberg as he nailed him with a Diamond Cutter.

The match then went underway, but it didn?t last long for DDP to win the match.
Page teamed up with Rick Steiner and Sid on Nitro, September 6, to take on Hogan and Goldberg. Unfortunately Steiner and Sid left Page to fight on his own, when Sting hit the ring, so of course Page was pinned.

Goldberg then took care of Bigelow and Kanyon, before he squashed Page. Dallas also interfered in the main event between Hogan and Sting, until Bret Hart took care of him.
The next night at Nitro, Page made his way out to the ring with a baseball bat during a contest pitting Sting and Luger against Hogan and Bret Hart. Hogan took care of Dallas but Luger used the bat on Bret Hart, so that Sting could pin him. Page then left together with Sting and Luger.
