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.
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.
