Chip’s Good Word: The Diamond Dallas Page Wedding
A pro wrestling legend picks Chattanooga for his Christmas wedding a few weeks ago
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Chattanooga was the surprise destination for a pro-wrestling legend’s wedding.
WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page tied the knot with retired adventure athlete Payge McMahan on December 9th.
And in true wrestling tradition, there was intrigue, misdirection and drama involved.
Page, with the help of his event planner/daughter, Brittany Page, rented out the entire Dwell Hotel for the scheme.
He sent out invitations to 115 friends for a Red and White Christmas themed party.
At least that was the story for his bride to be.
Of course, the couple showed up dressed for a hot Christmas party, not a wedding.. red backless evening gown and a white custom Hideoki Bespoke suit with a matching fedora.
But when the festivities got underway, DDP got down on one knee and proposed.
As soon as Payge said yes, the immediately moved on to a wedding ceremony.
Both family and friends were there to witness it all.
They included Julie Grant from Court TV, country singer Justin Fabus, and wrestling Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam.
And, of course, plenty more wrestlers like Katie Forbes, Harold “Ice Train” Hogue, nZo, Big Cass, Ace Austin, Gia Miller, Eric Watts, Mark Mero, and Hollywood Yates.
The couple is honeymooning in the Smoky Mountains.
And yes, the bride’s name is now Payge Page.
