-- WWE legend Ted DiBiase Sr. recently spoke to the Pro Wrestling Torch about why his son has not been on television in recent months. The interview was conducted prior to Ted Jr.'s announcement earlier today that he will be leaving WWE when his contract expires.
The "Million Dollar Man" said:
"The reason he's not been back on TV is they don't want to just throw him back out there. I've had a lot of frustration there, too, as a dad, in trying not to be biased. I asked all my friends - Arn Anderson, Mike Rotunda, the guys who are the producers now - I said, 'Did I miss something? Is there something wrong with my kid? Does he not have it?' They say, 'Oh no, he's one of the best wrestlers we got.' I said, 'What's the deal?' They said, 'We just have to find something for him.'"
"I will forgive CM Punk, I will accept CM Punk back. I will rebuild CM Punk and I shall take CM Punk to the main event at WrestleMania."
