Vindy.com is featuring an interview with WWE star Ted DiBiase Jr. discussing the pressure he has living up to his father’s name in the wrestling business.
“That’s what makes it fun,” DiBiase said. “That’s what makes it a challenge. When I came into this, I never expected for people to say he’s better than his dad. My dad, as far as I’m concerned, is going to be remembered as one of the greatest villains that there ever was in this business. He really launched a lot of guys to the top of their careers, and he was amazing. He’s a hall of famer.
So, yeah, it was a little bit hard and still is at times. There’s always a microscope on you, and you’re always being compared, but the difference between me and my father is when he started with Vince McMahon, he already had 15 years of experience. When I started with Vince McMahon, I had about nine months to a year. So as far as I’m concerned, I have a long career ahead of me, I’m excited about it and I look forward to surpassing the old man.”
