WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase was certainly one of the most popular and hated heels during the late 80s and early 90s. DiBiase’s character work continues to be iconic and is the blueprint for many pro wrestlers even now. Now it appears that DiBiase explained why he disliked The Ultimate Warrior.

The Million Dollar Man excelled in his heel work and made sure to become one of the most memorable villains during his time in pro wrestling. He had numerous iconic feuds throughout his career.

While speaking on Everybody’ Got A Pod podcast, Ted DiBiase revealed that he had a problem with The Ultimate Warrior. The Million Dollar Man explained that he disliked The Ultimate Warrior because the latter didn’t respect pro wrestling.

“If there’s one guy, and there is that one guy that I had an issue with, it was The Ultimate Warrior because quite frankly I think he got a break he didn’t deserve.


He didn’t respect wrestling, he didn’t grow up in wrestling, and he had one thing going for him: a good body.

If you go back and listen to any of the interviews that he did, when he got through, I would look at somebody and go, ‘What the hell did he just say,'” DiBiase revealed. “There’s other guys that I worked with that got a break, but they’re good people and they were appreciative.”

Ted DiBiase also revealed the actual value of his Million Dollar Championship previously as well. We will have to wait and see whether DiBiase will return to WWE television eventually.
