Ted DiBiase

Ted DiBiase is a legend in the sport of professional wrestling. He is regarded by many as the greatest villain in pro wrestling history. IGN called DiBiase "one of the most gifted technical wrestlers to ever grace the squared-circle".

He is mostly known for his time with the WWF (WWE) where he created his own belt, The Million Dollar Championship. He held many titles in his time with WWF, not including the WWE World Heavyweight Championship he purchased from André the Giant. He held Million Dollar Championship twice, WWF North American Championship, Tag team champions 3 times with Irwin R Schyster, King of the Ring and others.

​Among other accolades in the WWF, DiBiase was the first North American Heavyweight Champion, a three-time Tag Team Champion (with Irwin R. Schyster) and the 1988 King of the Ring. DiBiase also created his own championship, the Million Dollar Championship. He held the WWF World Heavyweight Championship belt in 1988 after purchasing it from André the Giant, but this period is not recognized by WWE as an official title reign. Nonetheless, DiBiase frequently headlined WWF cards, including WrestleMania IV and the first ever SummerSlam in 1988.

Ted DiBiase officially formed the tag team, Money Incorporated, with Irwin R. Schyster (IRS). The duo, mostly managed by Jimmy Hart, won the WWF Tag Team Championship three times between February 1992 and June 1993. Their first reign came on February 7, 1992 when they defeated The Legion of Doom for the titles. Money Incorporated then feuded with The Natural Disasters (Earthquake and Typhoon). They defended the title against the Natural Disasters at WrestleMania VIII and lost the match by countout, thus retaining the title. On July 20, they lost the title to the Natural Disasters.


DiBiase was also part of the team known as The Mega Bucks, along with André the Giant and fellow For The Love Of Wrestling guest, Virgil acting as DiBiase's bodyguard. André and DiBiase teamed several times against Hulk Hogan and (usually) Bam Bam Bigelow. Virgil, eventually replaced André as DiBiase's tag team partner, although the Giant regularly appeared in DiBiase's corner. Hogan and Bigelow won every one of these matches.

DiBiase headlined the 2010 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, being inducted by his sons, Ted Jr. and Brett.
