- Badass Decay/Dork Age: You'd think that, with all his money, his Power Stable The Million Dollar Corporation would have been a collection of the best talent available. Instead, it was a hodgepodge of guys past their prime (King Kong Bundy, Nikolai Volkoff), guys who didn't benefit by having DiBiase in their corner (Bam Bam Bigelow, "The Ringmaster" Steve Austin), guys with no credibility (Tatanka, Kama), guys with lame gimmicks (Brian Lee as "The Underfaker", Xanta Klaus), a guy who was less than reliable (Sycho Sid) and a guy who was on his way out the door (The 1-2-3 Kid). The only guy DiBiase had any real history or connection with was I.R.S., and he got stuck in the midcard for two years before leaving for WCW.
- Crosses the Line Twice: On an episode of Superstars, he offered a young boy $500 if he could bounce a basketball 15 times without messing up. The kid got up to 14 before Ted kicked the ball away, telling the confused child "You've got to learn a hard, cruel fact of life: when you don't do the job right, you don't get paid."
- Crowning Moment Of Funny: Showing up on WWE NXT to "marry" Goldust and Aksana purely to troll the hell out of his son.
- And a bit of Fridge Brilliance given that Ted Di Biase really is an Ordain Minister.
- Crowning Music Of Awesome: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MON~EY!
- Hilarious in Hindsight: In one of the Mid-South Wrestling episodes on the WWE Network he worries about being fined after interfering in a match, saying, "I'm not a rich man." That problem didn't last long.
- Memetic Mutation: He somehow became associated with "EVERYDAY I'M HUSTLIN'" on certain message boards.
- Likewise, his son is often called Hustlin' Jr.
- Moral Event Horizon: For both him and IRS, whacking Brutus Beefcake in the face with IRS's briefcase (this was when Beefcake was beginning to return to in-ring action for the first time in three years after his parasailing accident). Even Jimmy Hart, the manager, tried to talk them out of it to no avail, culminating in the latter's HeelFace Turn.
YMMV / Ted DiBiase
