Ted DiBiase Jr. Speaks On Virgil-RAW, PPV Matches, More
By Ryan Clark | May 21, 2010 |
Working With Virgil on RAW: "That was really cool," DiBiase said. "It was a big surprise and I don't think anyone expected it. Me walking out there and then just turning around with a smile and there's Virgil. The guy who used to pick me up from school. The guy I used to monkey around with and jump on. I guess he's kind of gotten smaller in his older age, but I used to grab onto his arms –he had these huge pipes, you know, these 24-inch arms back in the day and he'd just lift me up off the ground. I'd make him do it all the time. I used to bug the crap out of that guy. And now he's carrying around the belt, pulling the ropes down, opening doors and carrying my bags. It's a great feeling."
Sunday Being His First Singles PPV Match: "It feels really good. I had a good run with Cody Rhodes and I wish him all the best on Smackdown. We had a great tag team and I learned a lot and it was fine while it lasted, but it was time. It's great to be on my own and forging my own career now. I'm excited."
Living In His Father's Shadow: "No, I'm not worried at all. My dad was who he was and I am who I am. This is just me being me. Life gives you lemons and you make lemonade. This is who I am. I'm a DiBiase. I didn't ask for it, but this is who I'll be. The biggest differences between me and my dad is, well, A: I think I'm more talented than he was and B; I'm definitely better looking than my dad was. And on top of that, I'm a movie star. He never made a movie so I've got one up on him already. So, I'm not worried because I think my actions will speak louder than words and I'll start this Sunday, at Over the Limit, when I beat R-Truth."
