Ted DiBiase Jr. Reveals Why Legacy Got Disbanded
DiBiase started his WWE career as a singles star. Soon he teamed up with Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes, together they were known as The Legacy. This stable was extremely popular back then. We do not hear the name of this stable very much now a days but it had great impact during its time.
DiBiase won the WWE Tag Team Championship two times with Cody Rhodes. He was also one of the final four competitors in the Royal Rumble match of 2009. After Legacy split up, DiBiase had a single run for a while. He was released by WWE in 2013. After that, we went to the independent circuit. In 2017 he retired from Professional Wrestling.
Recently Ted DiBiase Jr. Spoke with Wrestlezone where he revealed the reason behind disbanding Legacy. Here is what he had to say;
“[I thought] we were going to have this magical separation and they had this plan for me, and surely you’re not going to put all of this time into me and build us up and put us in these great angles and then not have a plan—but there was no plan. WrestleMania was where we imploded, we had our match,” he noted, “and I remember sitting out by the ring with Michael Hayes and he’s like, ‘So Teddy, what do you want to do next?’ and I’m like, ‘Huh? What are y’all going to do with me next?’
“I was so used to getting there, somebody’s handing me a script, ‘You’re in two segments, three segments’ or ‘you’ve got a match, here’s your promo’ and I thought that’s how it worked. And that could have been a test to really show me that’s how that’s not normal and it doesn’t happen all of the time, but I don’t know.
“sIt’s funny reflecting on that. It’s interesting, but I don’t know and maybe it hurt me, but I’m grateful for it because personally. I did learn a lot from it, and those guys are killing it and crushing it. Man, I love ‘em and miss those guys.”
