Precious Wrestling Memories: The Origin of the Million-Dollar Belt

The Million-Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase, was the epitome of '80s greed. He had dollar bills on his tights. He routinely let kids participate in games of skill with the promise of cash rewards and then sabotaged them when they were about to succeed. And one time he even bought the WWF Heavyweight Championship from Andre the Giant for a sum of "at least $100," according to the playground rumors at school.

But nothing compares to the time he had an 800-diamond championship belt created! Be sure to watch until the 3:50 mark to get to the good stuff.


Now the only remaining burning question we have is this: What's the origin of the Million-Dollar Man's incredible vampire cape?
