Bruce Prichard Reveals Why Ted DiBiase Sr. Was Never Considered For A WWE World Title Run



During the latest edition of his “Something to Wrestle” podcast, Bruce Prichard revealed why Ted DiBiase Sr. was never considered for a WWE Championship run.

Additionally, the WWE executive listed off several other stars who were actually being considered for WWE title runs.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On rumors that Ted DiBiase was intended to be WWE Champion at some point: “No, DiBiase was never supposed to be champion, ever. I think Teddy could’ve carried it and would’ve been a good champion but that was not something that was ever seriously considered [because] you’re looking at a place that was a babyface territory that always had a babyface champion and was about building heroes. It was about building megastars and Ted was such a strong heel that he wouldn’t have fit at the time.”

On other stars considered for WWE Title runs: “Bam Bam Bigelow was considered at one point. Bam Bam just came in hot and then fizzled. After [the audience had] seen him, they’d seen him… We talked Ahmed Johnson. God, he would be a great champion. Look at him! Unfortunately, the bell had to ring.”
