"The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase was recently interviewed on Turnbuckle Weekly with Chuck Carroll. Below are some highlights from the interview:
What Vince McMahon told him when his "Million Dollar Man" character debuted:
"In an effort to make people believe you really are rich, we're going to fly you everywhere first class. You're going to stay in first-class accommodations, and you'll have limousine service daily."
How his character compared to Ric Flair's:
"I was never as flamboyant as [Flair]. And the other big difference… Ric's [tab] was coming out of his own pocket."
Comparing Eric Bischoff to Vince McMahon:
"The difference between Eric Bischoff and Vince McMahon is Vince McMahon knows how to create a star. Eric took a company and took it down. I remember a conversation one night after one of the shows, and Eric said he was going to put Vince out of business. I just laughed at him and said 'are you kidding me?' Even if Vince retreats a little bit, he ain't going away. I don't think you or anybody else are going to run him out of business."
