In an interview with the The Monday Night Mayhem radio show, WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase had some harsh words for former co-worker The Ultimate Warrior, who was in talks with WWE about being part of this year's Hall of Fame class.
DiBiase says he's glad Warrior was not inducted into the Hall of Fame this year over WrestleMania weekend. "I'm glad he wasn't there. I'm glad he wasn't there because he's somebody I don't particularly care for, and quite frankly, he was somebody who got a big push," DiBiase said. "He's one of those guys that has never really appreciated what was done for him, and all you have to do is watch the DVD. There's a lot of guys that did well in the industry that may have been lacking in some areas."
DiBiase worked with the Ultimate Warrior during Warrior's run at the top of the World Wrestling Federation, but the only way the man from Parts Unknown would have a good match is if his opponent carried the match.
"Here's a guy who the only reason he ever had a great match, every great match he had was directly depended upon who he was wrestling," said Dibiase. "And if the guy across the ring from him couldn't lead him around by the nose, he couldn't have a good match. So the fact that he wasn't called on doesn't bother me at all. I thought that since he lived out in that area, I thought that could have happened, and quite honestly, it would have been a very tense backstage environment if he and I were together. He's one of those guys who has been given so much in terms of an opportunity in our industry, who even to this day doesn't appreciate it, and I don't know for the life of me who he thinks he is."
