WWE: Ted Dibiase talks Ultimate Warrior Hall of Fame induction

"The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase had a fantastic WWE career and entered the WWE Hall of Fame in 2010. However, in a recent interview, reported on March 25 that DiBiase is not so sure that The Ultimate Warrior deserves his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.

DiBiase is an old school wrestler and he feels that wrestlers, in general, should pay tribute to the men who came before, paved the road, and helped them make it in the business. An example is Triple H, who always points out how important Ric Flair and Killer Kowalski were for his career.

DiBiase mentioned that, when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, he pointed out Harley Race in the audience and credited him with helping him get there. He then said that, over the years, The Ultimate Warrior has never shown gratitude to anyone who helped him get to the top of the WWE when he was there.

DiBiase said that Vince McMahon feels The Ultimate Warrior needs to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, but a lot of people don't agree. He also pointed out that Linda McMahon is inducting him, which should maybe show that he couldn't find a wrestler who was willing to induct him.

Ted DiBiase also talked about The Undertaker, who he managed when The Dead Man first broke into the WWE. He was asked about "The Streak" and said he has mixed feelings. He said that maybe it should never be broken, which would preserve Undertaker's legacy. However, he also pointed out how Andre the Giant allowed Hulk Hogan to pin him at "Wrestlemania III," and wrestlers should always put over and build new stars.
