He was awarded the short-lived WWF North American Championship thus he was the first champion.[1][2] On June 19, 1979, he lost the North American Championship to Pat Patterson who would unify the title into South American Championship becoming the first-ever WWF Intercontinental Champion.[3][4] Vincent Kennedy McMahon (born August 25, 1945) is an American wrestling promoter, occasional professional wrestler, on-screen personality, former play-by-play announcer, and film producer. ...

Mid-South Wrestling/National Wrestling Alliance/All Japan Pro Wrestling (Second run, 1980-1987)

DiBiase also spent time in the Georgia area where he had an early face run frequently tagging with Tommy "Wildfire" Rich. The two would then feud, leading to a loser leaves town match which DiBiase won. But instead of Rich leaving the area he donned a mask calling himself "Mister R." The feud would culminate in a match between Mister R and DiBiase where DiBiase would control most of the match and just as DiBiase was about to unmask Mr. R, Tommy Rich appeared from back stage and distracted DiBiase. Mister R then rolled up DiBiase to get the win and unmasked as Brad Armstrong. Both DiBiase and Rich would leave the territory shortly thereafter.


In the early to mid-1980s DiBiase participated in memorable angles in various territories with the likes of Dick Murdoch, Ric Flair, The Fabulous Freebirds, Jim Duggan, One Man Gang, and Junkyard Dog.[5] He also held various championships[2] and made frequent trips to All-Japan Pro Wrestling until his eventual departure from Mid-South Wrestling (which by this point was now the UWF). Typically, his matches would end with the use of a "loaded" black glove, which he would pull from his tights to "knock out" his opponent when the referee wasn't looking.

While locked in talks with the NWA in 1987 after the UWF was acquired by Jim Crockett, DiBiase received an offer from WWE. DiBiase was eventually convinced by WWE to sign up despite the fact that he wouldn't be told his gimmick until after he agreed, under the promise that it was something that would receive a serious push. WWE official Pat Patterson informed DiBiase that if owner Vince McMahon could go out to wrestle, which he did much later, then this would be the gimmick that he'd give himself.

World Wrestling Federation (Second run, 1987-1996)

Million Dollar Man character

DiBiase is considered by many as one of the greatest "heel" wrestlers of all time. This view is mainly due to his work in the World Wrestling Federation. He was known as "The Million Dollar Man," a millionaire who wore a gold-studded, dollar-sign-covered suit (sometimes green and white, sometimes all white, but usually black and gold) and, in time, a custom-made, diamond-encrusted and self-awarded "Million Dollar Belt". The Million-Dollar Championship was an unsanctioned title in the World Wrestling Federation created by The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. ...


DiBiase claimed "Everybody has a price" demonstrating his "power" through a series of vignettes in which he did things such as bribe the manager of a local swimming pool to close for the day so he could have the pool to himself. Other skits featured DiBiase traveling in limousines, giving $100 tips to waiters, and using $100 bills in convenience stores for small purchases like chewing gum. In reality, DiBiase's road travel was deliberately booked first-class for flights, into 5-star hotels for accommodations and was given a stipend of petty cash from the WWF Offices so that he could throw money around in public (i.e. pick up tabs and over tip, buy drinks for entire bars, actually pay for small items with a $100 bill, etc) in order to get the gimmick 'over'. He once told an Amarillo, Texas television station he personally paid for a large president's mansion that was built on the campus of his alma mater, West Texas State University. In reality, DiBiase provided no funding for the mansion. In professional wrestling, a promo is short for promotional interview, a dialogue or monologue used to advance a storyline. ... Chewing gum Chewing gum is a type of confectionery, traditionally, made of chicle, a natural latex product, although for reasons of economy and quality many modern chewing gums use rubber instead of chicle. ...


Other times, DiBiase invited fans (including a young Rob Van Dam) into the ring or to the interview platform to perform humiliating acts (such as kissing his feet) for money. One of the more infamous and fondly remembered of these skits was when he invited a young boy onto a stage and told him if he bounced a ball 15 times in succession, DiBiase would pay him $500. After the 14th bounce, DiBiase kicked the ball away, sending the boy home without pay. Robert Alexander Szatkowski (born December 18, 1970 in Battle Creek, Michigan) better known by his ring name Rob Van Dam, is currently an inactive American professional wrestler. ...


As mentioned above, DiBiase was a genuinely skilled technical wrestler, with his finishing maneuver being the Million Dollar Dream. After putting his opponents 'to sleep' with this maneuver, he routinely stuffed $100 bills down their throats, uttered his signature lines ("Everyone's got a price," and "Everyone's got to pay."), and gave his signature demonic laugh. The memorable "Million Dollar Rap" was used as his theme song beginning in 1990.


DiBiase later hired Virgil, whom he treated like a slave. Virgil would eventually grow tired of DiBiase's abuse and made an inspirational and enthusiastically received face turn at the 1991 Royal Rumble.

1987

Ted DiBiase made his WWF debut in 1987 as "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and was a great heel. His first big in-ring angle came in late 1987 on an episode of "WWF Superstars of Wrestling," where he announced his plan to buy the WWF Championship from Hulk Hogan. However, Hogan refused and said that DiBiase would have to defeat him in the ring for the belt. Hogan got the upper hand in a series of matches, and a frustrated DiBiase approached André the Giant to win the belt 'for' him.

1988

On February 5, 1988 edition on The Main Event (which aired live on NBC), André defeated Hogan in a very questionable decision for the WWF Championship (Referee Dave Hebner's "evil" twin brother Earl counted Hogan for the three despite fact that his shoulder was up at two);[6] Andre then announced he was surrendering the belt and handed it to DiBiase.[7] The WWF refused to acknowledge DiBiase as the champion[8] (since at the time WWF/WWE titles could not be bought or simply handed to someone else) and declared the title vacant.[7][9] DiBiase continued to feud with Savage throughout the summer of 1988, culminating in a tag team match pitting DiBiase and André the Giant vs. Hogan and Savage at the inaugral SummerSlam (in a match billed as "Where the Mega Powers Meet the Mega Bucks"). Although pro-heel commentator Jesse "The Body" Ventura served as the guest referee (to DiBiase's delight), Hogan pinned DiBiase to win the match for the faces. DiBiase went on to defeat Brutus Beefcake, Ken Patera, Ron Bass and Randy Savage to win the 1988 King of the Ring tournament receiving his first WWF success. is the 36th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...
