Ted DiBiase Sr. Reveals How Long His Storyline With Cameron Grimes Was Supposed To Last


During a recent interview with Fightful, WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase Sr. commented on his storyline with Cameron Grimes in NXT, how long it was originally supposed to last, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the initial plan for his appearance expanding to a longer gig: “Well, Cameron Grimes, who in real life apparently does invest in the stock market and apparently he’s done very well. So, they just played off of that. They said, ‘Let’s just create a story. GameStop goes through the roof and he becomes this multi-millionaire over night and starts trying to be like me.’ But, storyline-wise, not doing a very good job of it. So, the first few weeks they just brought me in and each time I would one-up him. One of them was we would go in a jewelry store. He’d buy this really nice Rolex watch, right? I come up behind him and go, ‘Not a bad watch, kid,’ but then I hold up this diamond bevelled watch and go, ‘But it’s not a million-dollar watch.’ He goes berserk and I walk out the door. But when we first started it, I think I was gonna be there for four weeks or something. It just kept building, well let’s bring back the Million Dollar belt.”

On taking bumps during the angle: “It’d been a long time and they didn’t want me to do that. The two bodyguards so-to-speak guarding the belt, they said, ‘You can fall back into their arms and they’ll catch you.’ I said, ‘Nuh-uh. I’m gonna do what I’ve done all my life, probably twenty to thirty times a night. The ring is a very good ring, I’m just gonna take the bump.’ But, I made sure I did it. I put everything I had into it. It’s kind of like the old man going, ‘I’m gonna show these old whippersnappers how you do it.’”
