Wrestler Diamond Dallas Page Sues Jay-Z Over Pyramid Sign

Wrestler Diamond Dallas

Page has filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z for unlawful use of his "Diamond Cutter"

hand signal.

Page, born Page Falkinburg, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles

Federal Court, claiming he trademarked the rights to the diamond-shaped symbol

in 1996 and has used it for wrestling and other entertainment ventures on multiple

occasions.

Page contends that Jay-Z started using the diamond symbol years

after on various commercial products, including the cover of Dynasty: Roc La

Familia 2000 and Fade to Black.

Hip-hop fans are aware that the Def Jam President has used the

diamond sign to signify his Roc-A-Fella Records dynasty.

According to Page, he introduced the "Diamond Cutter"

symbol in 1996 on WCW’s weekly Nitro and Thunder programs.

The wrestler, who uses the sign on the cover of his new book

"Yoga for Regular Guys," also says he used the symbol on monthly PPV

events, WCW live events, and media appearances, including The Tonight Show with

Jay Leno.

Representatives

for Jay-Z or Roc-A-Fella were not immediately available for comment.
