Ted Divias Jr. recently conducted a detailed interview with the people at Mandatory.com about all of the wrestling.
In the discussion, former WWE superstars reflected on being in a faction with AEW EVP Cody Rhodes and his father, Ted DiBiase Sr. of “The Million Dollar Man.”
Below are some of the highlights of the interview.
The difficulty of growing up as a legendary son and how he was helped by joining the Legacy faction with Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes: “It’s completely easy. The lonely path of growing up in the limelight as the son of a celebrity isn’t easy. Everyone always thinks,” It must have been cool! ” No. It’s cool, but there’s no better reason. I had to see my dad wrestle with Hulk Hogan in Madison Square Garden. [I remember] Andre the Giant lifts my head in the locker room when he’s sitting in a chair. But they don’t know you. “
How great it was to be in a group with Cody Rhodes: “And to be there [in WWE], Cody was amazing. We were able to ride together and soon formed a common bond. He showed me the rope. It was like having a brother. I already had two brothers and dreamed of wrestling together and becoming the tag team champion.It never happened because they were both injured, but Cody was like having a brother on the road. And with Randy [Orton] Joining him, it was just right. Running Legacy was a lot of fun and I couldn’t put my finger on it, but it was just right and it worked. “
About learning a lot in a group: “It made me realize the importance of companionship and brotherhood, the importance of being surrounded by like-minded people and those who accept me. We understood each other’s experiences. We had different lives, different places, different parents, but there were many similarities and the same pressures to live a life worthy of the name and inherit its torch and heritage. You are from your pedigree. When you’re born, you have a magnifying glass. Whether someone else wears it on you, or you wear it on you, it’s just there. There’s nothing you can do about it, “said DiBiase. “But it’s expected to be as good as or better than what’s in front of you, and that involves a lot of scrutiny. Yeah, it was really great, stepping into it, they It was really great to have comforted me. “
About group dissolution: “[I thought] We were going to make this magical farewell, but they had this plan for me. Indeed, you poured all this time into me, built us, and Place us at these great angles and don’t make a plan. There was no plan. WrestleMania was where we were catastrophic and we played a match, “he said.” I remember sitting by Michael Hayes and the ring. He “Teddy.” , What do you want to do next? “I said,” What? What are you going to do with me next? “I’m very used to going there and someone said,” You have two segments, three. I was giving me the script “Divided into segments” or “I have a match. This is your promotion.” And it might have been a test to show me that it’s unusual and doesn’t always happen, but I don’t know. It’s interesting to think of it. It’s funny, but I don’t know, and maybe it hurt me, but I’m personally grateful. I learned a lot from it. I love them and I miss them. “
