Source: The Bleacher ReportJonathan Snowden of The Bleacher Report has an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Ted Dibiase Sr. During the interview, Dibiase talked working in Mid-South, signing with the WWF, working in Japan and more. Here are a couple of highlights:
The angle where he teamed with the Junkyard Dog against The Freebirds and Terry Gordy piledrove him on the floor:
"That particular angle, at the time, really resurrected me. When I first went to Georgia Championship Wrestling, the promoter at the time Jim Barnett brought in Robert Fuller, who later became Colonel Rob Parker in WCW, as the booker. Everybody has their own style and way of doing things, and I was just not impressed with Robert Fuller. As a booker. As a talent he was fine. But as a booker, I just didn't think he had it.
"It was one of those moments. People always ask 'What was your greatest match. What was your favorite moment?' Not realizing, you wrestle so much in a career that you can't pick one. (Laughs). There isn't just one. But there's a lot of mile markers. And that particular angle was a mile marker in my career."
His evil laugh:
"That's funny. The laugh. That laugh is actually an extension of how I laugh. I naturally laugh kind of like that, though not to that extreme.
"We used to do separate interviews for every market back then. They would set up a little sound booth area, a room in the auditorium. And Vince happened to be walking by when I was doing mine, and I cocked my head and laughed at the end of my interview. He stuck his head in the door, and he looked at me and said "That's it. That is the Million Dollar Man." And he said "I want you to start and end every interview with that laugh." And that's how it happened."
