I couldn’t be a bigger fan of The Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase. One of my earliest memories is watching Survivor Series 1990, the first pro wrestling show I ever watched, and being absolutely enthralled by both DiBiase’s maniacal laugh and the work he did in the ring with Bret Hart.
To this day, I’m a fan. That’s why it was such a highlight to see him on NXT again this week. And he brought the Million Dollar Championship back! Sure, he’s not as good on the mic as he used to be, but it’s just so damn good to see him that I don’t even care.
Elsewhere, Poppy returned and brought former champion Io Shirai with her. She may get another run in NXT after all!
