Even today, when Ted DiBiase and his demonic laugh echoes, people around the world grip their assets a little tighter because everybody has a price for the “Million Dollar Man,” everybody has a price.

Ted is a three-time WWE Tag Team champion with partner Irwin R. Schyster, the first North American Heavyweight Champion and the 1988 King of the Ring.

The Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase

In 1983, he entered All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW) and won the NWA United National Championship on October 14, 1983. He returned to WWF as a babyface on May 15, 1987, and on a June 27 episode of WWF Superstars, DiBiase gave the world a first glimpse of The Million Dollar Man.

Following the event, the world saw a millionaire who wore a gold-studded, dollar-sign-covered suit and, in time, a custom-made, diamond-encrusted “Million Dollar Championship” belt. 

During that period, he bought everything, from the No. 30 spot in the 1989 Royal Rumble to the WWE Championship from Andre, the Giant. He created his title, the solid gold diamond-laced Million Dollar Championship but was never officially recognized by WWE.
