DDP: “I Never Signed a Contract with AEW”
DDP was a recent guest on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show and discussed his WWE career. The Hall of Famer discussed moments including wrestling in Toronto at WrestleMania 18, the Stalker gimmick, returning to the 2015 Royal Rumble and ATGMBR at WrestleMania 32, and more.
DDP also gave his current status with AEW and WWE (around the 1:02:37 mark):
“The second part of [my] WWE run, for me, has been amazing. I knew I had to help Cody. I wanted to go help both [WWE and AEW], because I never signed a contract with AEW. I told [Cody], before he even asked me, I wanted him to know that you couldn’t pay me to help you, because I want whatever I tell you to have no agenda. So, if you ask me something, I’m gonna give you my honest thought. It’s not gonna be because it’s gonna help this, or help me, you know, or any of that. I said, I make plenty of money. Now, if you want me to wrestle, you’re gonna pay me. Pay for all my chiropractic stuff I’m gonna do after that, and before. But, off that, I don’t want him to pay me. I was hoping that I would still get to be able to work with [WWE] guys. And I still do privately, but I can’t go to the Performance Center anymore.”
