Vince McMahon had a vision for Ted DiBiase Sr’s “Million Dollar Man” character, including the idea of giving the WWE Hall of Famer some ‘flash cash’ to get the character over with the fans.
On the latest edition of his brand new “Everybody’s Got A Pod” podcast, the WWE legend commented on Vince McMahon’s vision for the “Million Dollar Man” character, what the WWE Chairman told him about the ‘flash cash’ he was given, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On McMahon’s vision for the character: “He said, ‘Everybody hates someone who by the virtue of their wealth thinks they’re better than everybody.’ That was the essence of the character.”
On being given ‘flash cash’ for the character: “From the first day, I signed the contract, somebody in the office walked in the room, counted out $2,000 in brand new hundred dollar bills and Vince says, ‘Ted, this is your flash cash.’ He says, ‘Here’s what I want you to do. Don’t abuse it. If you abuse it, you lose it, but you’ve gotta pick the right spot.’”
