Re: How would you Re Package Ted Dibiase?
Have his Dad come out and pretty much cut him off. Says he will continue the funds once he can prove himself. Ted then goes on a tear, winning cleanly all over the place. Start out with guys like Santino but work up towards a Orton or Barrett type win. Finally Ted takes the IC title off of Kofi. Have him be a fan favorite the entire time. His dad will tempt him with different situations like throwing in a chair as the ref is down, etc.
Ted will win the IC title. The next night on RAW, his dad talks about how proud he is and hands him a briefcase with his portion of the DiBiase empire to do what he wants. At that point, Ted just snaps and takes down his Dad. After that, he turns into a JBL type guy. Has the money. Has the lackeys. And goes after Cena because he can't stand how he is. Eventually Ted beats Cena to own his rights. Ted then wins the World Title when he forces Cena to wrestle on his behalf.
Eventually this works into a Cena vs. Ted match. If Ted wins, Cena can't receive a title shot ever again against Ted. If Cena wins, Ted releases him of his services. Cena wins by DQ or Count Out but Ted looks dominate in the match. Cena gets one more shot and can't beat him again. Ted then carries the title for roughly a year before losing it to the hottest star in the business not named Cena.
