The Other Side: Million Dollar Man

"Everybody has a price!" for the million dollar man. One of the most despised heels as well as one of the well respected in ring technicians which gets overshadowed always.


How would you rate Ted Dibiase Sr between the bells inside the ring? Is a million dollars in the ring as well in various aspects like carrying, story telling, move set, psychology or is he not worth that much?

I tend to be biased for if there is any wrestler I would mark for, it would have to be him not only for his million dollar man run but for his in ring ability that he displayed backing up all the talk inside and outside the WWF. He has spent 15 years outside WWF with 11 years as an active wrestler which is rarely looked at excluding his last run in WCW as a manager.

A tremendous wrestlers. Probably the top heel in the WWF for a while as well. Also should have won the title at Wrestlemania 4.

Re: The Other Side: Million Dollar Man

He was one of the finest in-ring technicians in history. He won Wrestling Observer newsletter award for best technical wrestler in 1981 and Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked him number 17 of the top 500 singles wrestlers of the year in the PWI 500 in 1991 and number 32 of the top 500 singles wrestlers of the "PWI Years" in 2003.

Re: The Other Side: Million Dollar Man

He had a very high workrate - he came up in the territory days, and got to hone his craft before WWE. Great suplexes and a good seller.

I've been in the Danger Zone! He's got a Bicycle! Minus! Five! Stars! FAT ASSES! Mongo! Huh? Yappapi! WE COMING FOR YOU .....! Super Dragon! (CZW Airhorn) Oh shi- Jeff Harvey. How Much Does This Guy Weigh? Hahaha! Play! Wanna Play 21? FAKKEN!

Re: The Other Side: Million Dollar Man

One of the best heels of all time, was incredibly talented in the ring, really knew how to sell a match or a storyline and is a nice guy to boot!

The Million Dollar Dream is still absolute class, he had it all, in ring skills, the look, charisma, everything, they took WAY too long to induct him into the Hall Of Fame, but I was so made up when he finally was inducted in 2010.

Talent at it's finest ... influencing generations that will shine through the years.

Re: The Other Side: Million Dollar Man

My favorite DiBiase match of all time was his first match against Virgil. What a tremendous fuckin performer all around. The guy helped make Virgil a hero.

Watch the beginning of that match and watch how fierce Virgil comes off. You could literally see the years and years of pent up rage finally being unleashed and DiBiase sold it like a champ. I remember there was a one spot where Virgil clotheslines him over the top rope and it's as if he just got hit by a train.

Re: The Other Side: Million Dollar Man

His amazing ability to play one of those most hated characters definitely overshadows how great of a technicians he was. In my opinion, one of the greatest heels/characters in wrestling history. Shame his son couldn't pick up the charisma or skill.
