KAYFABE THEATER: Ted DiBiase appears as the WWF World Champion

The Million Dollar Man wrestles in Boston the day after being handed the World title by Andre the Giant, wearing the belt and being interviewed as the champion.

DiBiase would eventually be stripped of the belt by World Wrestling Federation President Jack Tunney, who set up a tournament at WrestleMania IV to crown a new champion. Randy Savage would eliminate DiBiase in the finals to become the new titleholder.

The Million Dollar Man, despite this appearance, is not officially recognized as ever having a reign as the WWF World Heavyweight champion.

  1. Yep. DiBiase actually held the belt for a day, or 2. Even Wrestled on a card as WWF World Heavyweight Champion. So I count it, even if WWE don’t. He was supposed to get the belt officially at WM4, too, until Honkey threatened to take the WWF IC belt to WCW, if they tried to make him drop it to Savage. So Savage got the WWF WHC instead.
