WWE NXT moved to Tuesday Nights right after WrestleMania. In a lot of ways, we believe this is the beginning of a new era of the black and gold brand. Speaking of the new era, things got new and exciting for Cameron Grimes as he became NXT’s Richest Man earlier this year. But now, he has a Million Dollar problem.

Ted DiBiase makes NXT debut, surprises Cameron Grimes

This week, we saw Cameron Grimes taking a close look at a prestigious watch. He eventually bought it, and was having a fun time embracing its feel on his wrist. Just as he was embracing his new and expensive watch, a familiar voice said, “That’s not a bad watch, kid.” The man held a diamond-studded Rolex next to Grimes and continued, “But it’s not a Million Dollar watch!”

Before Grimes could turn to see who it was, the man scared him with a loud ‘Ha!’ It was none other than the ‘Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase! DiBiase continued with his trademark laughter and then left the store as Grimes stood there humiliated!

This is not the first time Ted DiBiase has humiliated NXT’s Richest Man. Last week, the ‘Million Dollar Man’ outbid Grimes for a NFT, which left him fuming. This week also, was no different. In fact, we’re sure this will turn out into a full-fledged storyline on NXT TV for the coming months.

During an appearance on Booker T’s Hall of Fame Podcast a few weeks ago, Ted DiBiasi had shared he was soon going to start a program with Cameron Grimes. Guess what? It came true in less than a month! We’re very excited to see where this program between the two ‘Money Men’ of WWE goes.


Just a random thought. What if this is a way to make Cameron Grimes the ‘modern-day’ version of the ‘Million Dollar Man?’ Grimes could end this program buying the title of ‘Million Dollar Man’ from Ted DiBiase. It’s a longshot, but let’s see how it pans out.
