In this special episode of Greetings From Allentown, the first 1987 WWF appearances by Ted DiBiase are examined on the 30th anniversary of the first Million Dollar Man vignettes. Included:
– A brief history of DiBiase and his career across various territories from the mid-70s up to his return to the WWF in May 1987
– The impact of Houston Wrestling and Paul Boesch spurning the NWA and Jim Crockett Promotions in favor of working with the WWF and a big reason why that was done
– A look at the Houston-only storyline that turned babyface Ted DiBiase into a heel literally on the eve of the first Million Dollar Man vignettes and why the WWF would feel they needed to do it
– My personal favorite Million Dollar Man vignette and Ted’s crossover to super-villainy
