“It got really personal, really fast.” looks back on the rivalry between Diamond Dallas Page and "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

Before he ever locked up with Randy Savage, Diamond Dallas Page already had a storied past with The New World Order. A former tag team partner of nWo founders Kevin Nash and Scott Hall early in his career, Page felt slighted when they recruited a number of members into the faction before him. When the time came for DDP’s enrollment, he turned down the black and white and became a target.

In the weeks following Savage’s initial attack, the hostility between the two competitors started to build, but it was at WCW Uncensored’s pay-per-view event in March of 1997 that the enmity reached a boiling point. At the time, WCW fans were not aware that DDP and his valet, Kimberly, were actually married. Savage exposed the couple’s relationship in order to get inside Page’s head and further enrage the New Jersey native. (PHOTOS)

“For me, the whole thing got started at Uncensored when Savage attacked me and then spray-painted Kim.” DDP told WWE Classics, “It got really personal, really fast.”

The personal component of the rivalry with Savage didn’t only have an effect on DDP — the former WCW World Champion also believes it’s what really hooked the fans. With the added struggle of The nWo and WCW, the battle lines were drawn for epic clashes between the two legends.
