The ‘Million Dollar Man’ gimmick of Ted DiBiase senior is one of the most iconic ones in the history of professional wrestling, let alone in WWE.
During a recent interview with Ring Rust Radio, Ted talked about his character and revealed that it was originally created by none other than the Boss Vince McMahon himself:
“The Million Dollar Man the character is actually a Vince McMahon original. It was presented to me and Vince kind of started laying it out. Vince said, ‘I chose you because you’re articulate; you carry yourself well; you interview very well; you are a great wrestler; you’re perfect for this.'”
Talking about the late WWE Legend Bobby Heenan DiBiase said that to him, Heenan was the best managers of all who can pick up a microphone and talk:
“Bobby Heenan to me, he was the best. Of all the guys that have been managers that can pick up a microphone and talk, he was a natural and so good. His character like mine was so hated, it was like a little weasel. Everybody wanted to kill him and that was the whole point.”
Apart from this, Ted DiBiase also talked about his career and more.
