As noted earlier this week, the son of the legendary "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, former NWA North American Heavyweight champion Mike DiBiase, has been issued a warrant for his arrest for failure to appear in Tyler County court on Tuesday, July 14, 2009 to make a plea on Class A theft charges. DiBiase was arrested on March 22, 2009 in Huntsville, Texas after being caught in possession of stolen property found inside his vehicle belonging to an independent wrestling promoter. DiBiase had appeared on the independent wrestling promoter's show the night before. Capt. Larry McDugle of the Walker County Sheriff's Office told Mike Aldren of the Wrestling Globe Newsletter the following: "Michael Wills DiBiase was booked into the Walker County jail at 2:19 pm, March 22, 2009 on a charge of Theft of Property $500 to $1500 out of Tyler County, Texas. He was released on bond at 4:09 pm the same date." Mike is the half brother of Ted DiBiase, Jr. and Brett DiBiase, who are both under contract to World Wrestling Entertainment.
After auctioning of his WWE Hall of Fame ring a few weeks ago, "Superstar" Billy Graham has decided to auction off the leather jacket he wore during his Hall of Fame induction in 2004. The jacket was exclusively worn during his Hall of Fame induction and and live in front of fans at WrestleMania XX at Madison Square Garden. As far as the ring is concerned, it managed to sell for $11,500.00 to a legitimate bidder. When asked a few weeks ago why he was selling the ring, Graham responded with the following on the auction page: "Today, July 14, 2009 I received an email From Mike Aldren of the the-sun.co.uk/wrestling asking me if the selling of my WWE Hall of Fame ring was actually legitimate and if yes, why would I want to depart with it? First off, I owe no one an explanation as to why I want to sell this beautiful WWE ring. In a recent board meeting Vince McMahan said " That there will never be an actual physical Hall of Fame building and that the Hall of Fame only exists in my head." Dispite the many public claimes by Shane McMahan that there in fact would be a physical Hall of Fame building in the near future. Further more, I have never been sentimental about The WWE or anything connected with Profestional wrestling in general."
