This is quite the news bit...

If you were approached by Vince McMahon with a view to a return to WWE, on what terms would you consider returning to the company?

Dibiase: I am returning to the company and I'm doing so to help in a creative role for the SmackDown show and as an agent to help the young talent. It's on a trial basis to see if it works in with what I'm already doing and to see if I fit for them. It's going to keep me very busy for a while, that's for sure.


I think this is pretty cool. Afterall, who would be better than DiBiase to help current WWE heels get the most from their characters, matches, and interviews?

Hmmm....I read that WWE asked him, but he wasn't up to date with the current product, so nothing happened.

This may get Dibiase into the "Hall of Fame" a bit sooner now.

My first reaction is to say this is a great idea, as DiBiase is not only a wrestling (rather than failed Hollywood) guy but also the sort of worker you'd want to have teaching the young guys. It seems, however, I made the same comment in response to Ricky Steamboat's tryout a couple months ago. Any word on what happened with that?

I requested him being in it...but the guy who made it for me thought it would leave it unbalanced to have 3 guys...so he left him out...his call.


Hopefully it works out well for DiBiase...he did the commencement address at our HS graduation...gave me a new respect for the guy.

He's probably going to Smackdown to help JBL with his DiBiase impersonation.

While I definitely think it's a great move, I can't help laughing after hearing DiBiase say time and time again he'd never go back to Vince McMahon because wrestling was immoral, etc.

I mean, he's not alone. Piper is another tremendous example of having to insert his foot in his mouth when it came down to another return to the spotlight. But it just makes you appreciate the ideals of guys like Bruno and Bret all that much more.

Who knows? Maybe Shawn sat down and had a talk with him, Christian to Christian? As a fan, you should realize by now that there’s no such thing as “Never” in this business.

And in this era of PTC/FCC extremism, maybe he could be of some use in helping the WWE get back to putting on good matches and shows on their network show without drawing too much fire.

I know money talks and BS walks, but Ted totally trashed the WWE product for the last few years, now he is fine with it?

There are a lot of ways you can reconcile something like this to yourself, and it could be something as simple as "I'll be in charge of bringing good wrestlers to the company, not creating bad offensive storylines." Sure it's hypocritical in a way because you're still involved in making an "immoral" company money, but everyone's a hypocrite in his own way. :)

Perhaps he sees it as a small way to help steer the WWE towards a "better direction"? You can't affect change if you refuse to get involved.

He's been equal parts softspoken and outspoken at different times in regards to his distaste for the WWE product. But now he's actually taking action -- he's an extremely moral man by most accounts... I would guess he realized apathy towards the business wasn't going to combat the evils of the business.

WIll he quit the next time they stuff a woman in the trunk of a car? I think he could help a lot of the guys on promos but I don't know if he'll survive in that environment for very long.

I hope he's doing it because he thinks he can be a positive influence on the product and not because he might need the work or money.

Am I the only one thinking that Ted knows what he's getting into? Surely he had morals and convictions the last time that he worked for the company, and he's never seemed like a fool to me (Well, he did refuse to allow me to read his message board a year ago because I didn't have an "ISP" mail account) so I think he is walking into this with his eyes open.

Modern people are prone to hyperbole. Just look at TV shows like "Best Week Ever". It's rife in our society - people almost never mean it when they use absolutes (always, never, best, worst).

I guess I always assume there is an implied condition that can change anyone's mind.

Also, to be fair, the product isn't the same now as it was five years ago, either. It's still definately more "in-your-face" than it was in the 1980's, but compared to the Attitude Era, today's product is a lot less controversial.

It's also worth noting that he is going to Smackdown, which is on network TV in prime time and subject to much more stringent content rules than is Raw. That may have helped him reconcile his role with his beliefs, knowing that he'll be working with the 'cleaner' show.

I think it's neat that DiBiase's back with WWE, even though we probably won't see him on camera until he gets voted into the Hall of Fame. Which I imagine will happen sooner rather than later, and rightly so.

And I should point out, regarding his morals-- DiBiase was in the New World Order in 1996, for cryin' out loud. So I can't imagine he'll have too many problems with the current WWE product.

I know this has been said to death, but really, the two-man booth would work so much better for someone of Joey's talents (and for the overall show, for that matter).
