WWE Hall Of Famer Confirms Current Contract Status

WWE Hall Of Famer Confirms Current Contract Status WWE

A WWE Hall of Famer has confirmed their current contract status with the company whilst talking about a popular NXT storyline.

The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase was featured on WWE NXT in a storyline that featured Cameron Grimes and LA Knight.

Speaking at For the Love of Wrestling, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that the story ran for longer than initially planned and discussed his contract status, saying:

“I had a blast (in my stint with NXT). I’m on what they call a Legends contract. So I make myself available to them and I’m at their disposal if they should happen to call me any time and it’s rare.

“So that was one of those rare times when they called me and they said, ‘Look, we’ve got one of our young guys here. His name is Cameron Grimes, who legitimately invested in the stock market and hit big and overnight, you know, got a whole lot of money and so we’ve come up with this storyline where we’re gonna have him start acting like you’ and then have me come along, for example, he’s in a jewelry store and he’s buying a watch and so he holds up this beautiful gold Rolex, it’s diamond-studded and everything.

“I walk up behind him and I hold up this diamond bezel watch that is just diamonds everywhere and I say, ‘Nice watch kid. But it’s not a million dollar watch’ and then I go (does signature laugh) and walk out the door and just leave him going (upset) and it’s I continue to do things.”

Footage from this segment with Grimes in the jewelry store can be seen below this news story.

Anyway, we just had fun with it for a while and it actually went a little longer than they anticipated that it was gonna go because it basically got over so well.

But yeah, when L.A. Knight got involved, I saw the skill that he had as well. The focus first was on Cameron Grimes but I saw the talent in L.A. Knight and I mentioned that to a couple of people and they said, ‘Yeah, we know’ and this has helped bring that out in him too and obviously, he’s moved on up.”

Cameron Grimes recently made his main roster debut on WWE SmackDown.
