The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion recently told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that everybody wants war:
“Hell yeah, everybody always wants war. We don’t want anybody to get killed, but they want war,” he said. “When there’s no competition, things (and) fans get dull. When wrestling really works is when you blur the lines and reality — you don’t know what is reality.”
Despite not being officially signed to All Elite Wrestling, DDP has cameoed for the promotion a number of times. He accompanied Cody Rhodes to the ring during AEW’s All In show, where Cody faced off against NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis.
DDP also accompanied Cody to the ring at Double or Nothing and during AEW’s recent All Out event. He joined Brandi Rhodes and MJF in Star Trek outfits, alongside Pharaoh. Cody would end up selecting MJF to second him for his matchup against Shawn Spears. Cody would emerge victorious in his grudge match against Spears.
