give him 4 unimportant dudes, put him in a cheerleading outfit and who knows, maybe he evolves to another ziggler

Maybe he needs a character based on an occupation. Or maybe he could be a temp and have a different occupation each week.

Re: How would you Re Package Ted Dibiase?

For one thing, I would stop with the fucking "DiBiase Pussy" gimmick.

His rich-guy-gives-away-all-his-money gimmick is about as effective as a paper condom. And, unfortunately for DiBiase, Del Rio's already doing the whole hateful rich dude schtick.

So probably ditch the entire rich kid thing altogether.

Unless...

You turn DiBiase into a character who literally buys success. Like his (actually rather awesome) theme song says, if he can't do it legit, he just reaches into his pocket and buys what he wants. Maybe his character challenges the WWE itself, threatening to buy it out, corrupting its management staff, influencing decisions, and consequently keeping the gold around his waste.

It's something they haven't bothered to do with Del Rio, and that could be the opening DiBiase needs to get over with the audience.

Of course, DiBiase needs the mic and ring skills to back up such a limelight storyline. So a lot depends on him as a performer.

MAX

Re: How would you Re Package Ted Dibiase?

Started out his career well as a heel...Just turn him back into a heel. He tried his best with the DiBiase posse, but it was never gonna take him far.

Arrogant, obnoxious, snob who flaunts his cash every time he is on screen in promo's, backstage, even in the ring somehow...Have him trying to buy officials, title shots etc. Try and make it as different from Ted DiBiase snr's MDM gimmick as possible. But even still, i wouldnt care if they completely rehashed the MDM gimmick. Solid talent in ring and good on the mic. Would be a waste not to do anything with him IMO.

I personally think Dibiase would make a great face.

Re: How would you repackage Ted DiBiase?

hate hate hate hate hate...


I'll be honest, I haven't seen Dibiasse in a good year and a half so I don't know if the hate is warrented or not, but I do know that they screwed up with him from the word go. Putting him under Orton was a career killer. They've paid attention to his name, but in the wrong ways altogether. The first Idea I had with him off the bat when he came in was the million dollar kid. There's another thread around here about recycling old gimmicks, and that's probably the best one to recycle. Dumb people everywhere hate the rich, exploit that. Not only that it's an easy gimmick to write and perform around. You don't have to be a genius or oscar level actor to pull it off. If when he came in they had put him in the same gimmick as his dad with his dad as a mouthpiece/manager.. he could have been world champion material at some point.

They didn't though, and everything else they've done with him (the stuff I saw before and the stuff I'm reading about in this thread) makes it about impossible to really pull off the gimmick in the right way. He's half screwed, but if he had something interesting to do and some time to work on the little things he'd be great. Hell if I know what that interesting thing is now that they've made him look like a biatch..

but haters gonna hate.
