A really good article about DDP taking Hall and Jake Roberts under his wing. http://deadspin.com/​can-​diamond-​dallaspage-​save-​wrestlings-​walking-​dead-​793015043?​utm_​campaign=socialflow_​deadspin_​twitter&​utm_​source=deadspin_​twitter&​utm_​medium=socialflow

One coud argue DDP is going all in for some good press, but I don't remember when Jake looked so good and Hall does seem real positive plus I learned that he Tweets. I haven't watched any clips yet but I look forward to a documentary if they are able to put one together.

Fun Fact :

    Everyone in the house agrees that Bill Belichick will find a cool way to use Tim Tebow this year.

This is awesome. It's rare you get a positive, uplifting story about ex-wrestlers, especially Roberts and Hall. I just hope this sticks.

I think Page is doing it because he's a good guy, and if he can help save Hall and Roberts' lives, I wish him every success in his endeavor.

This is a great article. What DDP is doing for others is astounding. I know that about 10 million people have already seen this, but this is the definition of inspiration:

Has anyone here ordered/tried DDPYoga? I've been on the fence about buying it for a couple of months now, and I'd love to hear others' thoughts about its value.

A couple of people on the DVDVR board are doing it and getting some great results. One of them tweeted his 60 day progress while the board was down

I've had the DDP Yoga book for many years ( http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Regular-Guys-Workout-Planet/dp/1594740798 )

I don't like yoga classes because of the forced pace, so I go through a lot of yoga books and magazines. The layout, variety of information, and style of the DDP book makes it one of the best books I've used. It's a great counterpart to the mostly female-centric and/or New Agey yoga info out there. It's written for guys in a direct but light-hearted manner without all the mystical pseudo-science 'healing energy' crap. Perfect.

After some of his recent tweets being from South Beach, I was worried about Scott Hall being out of the DDP nest. However, he sounded good on the Stone Cold podcast today.

Fun fact: one of the guys in the book modeling the poses is a very young, non-mustachioed, Cody Runnels. His profile is on page 189 (and it shows up using the Look Inside This Book! deal on Amazon).

I've been doing DDP Yoga for about 5 months now & love it ...

I was already a lean guy, so I didn't much weight to lose. But whole body feels better in general. It's not just the yoga routines themselves, it's just as much about the nutrition. Becoming gluten & dairy free are the key.

But for anyone looking for something different, I highly recommend it.

Got a chance to meet DDP & Jake back in March at some tattoo & horror show in Nashville. Both were really nice guys. Got to also participate in a yoga demo that DDP did there ...

Yeah, even though I knew he was doing better, I was kind of shocked at how lucid, clear-headed, and contemplative he sounded, especially when you're used to the Mess Hall of the last 15 years. Enjoy it while it lasts and hope it lasts a long time. Beyond that there's a lot of good stories about his breaking into wrestling and then WWF -- Austin has really good conversations with his peers even if his outline is often just reading their Wikipedia page.

Uh...

Look, if he feels better, more power to him. That's actually a really, really important result. More important than the cosmetics, IMO.

That said, he looks exactly the same, and the only difference between those three pictures is how far away the camera is; his feet or lack thereof in the first one give that away. Also, there's different lighting.

Again though, if he can do more and feels better, great! But there's no way he's lost weight judging from those pictures.

No offense, but you're saying essentially the guy decided to take photos but isn't smart enough to check the scale to see if he's lost weight.

Maybe you just can't tell from the photos?

I remember right before Virgil turned face at the Royal Rumble in 1991, Dibiase was humiliating him in front of the crowd. During this, someone nailed him with a full coke that exploded everywhere. This was a truly great moment...
