Ted DiBiase Sr. is known in wrestling as the ‘Million Dollar Man’ but the WWE Hall of Famer wasn’t thrilled with his pay in Royal Rumble matches.

On a recent edition of his “Everybody’s Got A Pod” podcast, DiBiase Sr. was asked if he got paid less for appearances in the Royal Rumble match. He said,

“Well, yeah. I mean, because you’re gonna — everybody gets paid for the Rumble. And everybody that is in the Rumble and also has match, they should get a little more. Yeah [there are a lot of rest moments], but the other aspect of that is, who the last guys in the ring. You know, that means a lot.”

DiBiase Sr. was the runner-up in the second-ever Royal Rumble in 1989. The following year he was the #1 entrant and lasted close to 45 minutes in the match.
