Ted DiBiase Jr, Streak Ender?
Ted DiBiase Jr recently did an interview with ESPN.com, to promote the new Smackdown vs Raw 2010 video game. One thing that came you in the interview, is that he wants to be the person to end the Undertaker's WrestleMania Streak: Jon Robinson (ESPN.com interviewer): "The new "WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2010" game lets you create your own storyline. If you could write your own future in the business, what would it be?" Ted DiBiase: "I want to defeat The Undertaker at Wrestlemania and break his streak. That would be my ultimate storyline." Jon Robinson: "That would take The Undertaker's story full circle since your dad is the one who introduced him back in the day." Ted DiBiase: "Exactly." Other highlights included him talking about his family and time on the road with legacy: Jon Robinson: "You're teaming with Cody Rhodes [son of Dusty Rhodes], but is there competition between you guys as well since you're both going to eventually be gunning for that same spot on top?" Ted DiBiase: "Yeah, there's competition with everyone. With me and Cody, it's interesting because I have no doubt he will be on top, and I have no doubt that I will be on top, so I think it's one of those things where we feed off of each other and we motivate each other. We're climbing the ladder and that's the really cool thing. He has the same kind of story that I do, so it's really cool to share that with somebody. I have a little brother who is down in FCW as well, so there's a lot to look forward to." Jon Robinson: "So is your brother the next Legacy member?" Ted DiBiase: "I don't know. He's only been down there like six months." Jon Robinson: "How long did it take you to make it up to WWE?" Ted DiBiase: "About six months. [laughs] But he's 21. He's a young guy and he just started. He's doing good, though. He's making good progress." Jon Robinson: "One of the best matches you've had to date was actually against your Legacy teammate, Randy Orton. Was there a lot of pressure for you going into that match as you were trying to prove to everyone that you have what it takes to make it to that top spot?" Ted DiBiase: "There's always that pressure, and especially being in the ring with Randy because he's on top. It's pressure, it's live TV, there are thousands of people watching in the arena and millions watching at home so you want to look good. But that was a cool night for me. I've always wanted to wrestle Randy. We're boys. We're part of the Legacy together right now, but I think the future holds some really cool things, some really cool opportunities." Jon Robinson: "Randy always talks about how traveling with Triple H and Ric Flair changed his career because the vets sat down with him and taught him so much. Does Randy share that knowledge with you and Cody while you guys are on the road?" Ted DiBiase: "Absolutely. Not only do you learn a lot, but Randy always picks up the tab. He's been nothing but help. He offers me help all the time, and he doesn't have to do that, but we share a very special bond, the fact that we're both third-generation wrestlers, so there's that connection there. He's reached out to me and has really made sure that I take the steps that I need to take to hopefully be where he's at one day. We need to build a bigger card. These guys won't be around all the time. Look at D-X … they're old. [laughs] They're old. It's our time now."
