Source: PWInsiderThe news that Ted DiBiase Jr. is leaving WWE did not come as much of a surprise internally and wasn't met with much reaction, seen as just a "shrug" to some. Apparently DiBiase had talked privately among some of his co-workers about leaving as of late.
It's said that DiBiase realized he was stuck in a position on the bottom of the ladder, on the road every week but not being booked. DiBiase felt that if he left on his own, people in WWE might respect him more and one day if they want him for something, he could come back and mean something.
