Re: How would you repackage Ted DiBiase?
I don't know that people care enough to see him in the ring. You have to give him a non-wrestling role first, so that people will grow to hate him, and thus want to see him get his ass kicked in the ring. First, and foremost I don't think he should stay away from the rich gimmick. As a matter of fact he should first have in which he is suddenly hurt. Carried out, and taken out of the arena in an ambulance. Have the injury seem legit, and work it as much as you can. DiBiase's have a history of injuries in their family. Once Teddy returns, it's with a whole new out look on life.
He says that he is now forced to retire from professional wrestling, and he says not one fan ever asked once if he thought he would ever come back. Teddy claims that he doesn't have to wrestle, and that his life is that of one who does not have to work. DiBiase claims that he only worked in this business to please his father, and it wound up breaking his neck. Have Teddy say that he sued his father, and won in court. Teddy Jr says that he was able to take everything away from his father like candy from a baby. Now he says that his father is homeless, and makes less money than Virgil.
In order to keep tradition of his father. Teddy would purchase NXT, and then fire Dusty Rhodes as GM. He says that his father may have been responsible for bringing in The Undertaker, and Austin. However, he plans to offer more than his father ever could to this business, and that's providing a whole roster of talent for the future. The whole point is to place Teddy on the same path as his father, but greater. He keeps the Millionaire lifestyle, and takes credit for offering the WWE the best talent in the world with NXT. A non-wrestling role in NXT as it's CEO would be great. I could see him finding another GM, perhaps himself.
