Ted DiBiase Jr is a 3rd generation professional wrestler and the son of WWE Hall of Famer “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. Ted paid his dues to earn a spot on the WWE roster, training with WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race and dominating the independent circuit along the way.
DiBiase has made it clear he has one thing on his mind – championship glory – which he got his first taste of by winning the World Tag Team Titles alongside Cody Rhodes at Night of Champions 2008. From there, the aggressive upstart found himself among the prestigious company of Randy Orton and his Legacy.
Having also embarked on a career in Hollywood, DiBiase made his feature film debut in WWE Studios’ “The Marine 2.” Following his foray into cinema, he went right back to focusing on his in-ring career, jumping over to SmackDown in the April 2011 Draft, where the son of The Million Dollar Man teamed up with his former Legacy cohort, Cody Rhodes, once again.
But, DiBiase’s real breakout role had only just begun. As the leader of The DiBiase Posse, Ted reached out to the WWE Universe in a way that no other Superstar has before by scoping out arena parking lots before shows and looking for fans to hang with.
DiBiase connected with the WWE Universe in a way his father could never buy. Despite that connection, DiBiase left WWE in September 2013 after becoming a father, wishing to no longer spend 250 days per year away from home.
Since his days inside the squared circle Ted has leveraged his network and experience to become a saavy entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist.
Ultimately it was Ted’s heart for giving back to veterans that has lead him to his latest venture. Ted teamed up with Jared Ashley and David Keller, both former military, as well as entertainment industry veterans. By mid 2021, 16 Creative will unveil it’s first two initiatives “The Wrestling Collection” and “The Military Collection”.
The mission of 16 Creative is simple: Provide a platform to professional wrestlers and military organizations to grow their audience, improve customer engagement, and ultimately increase revenue.
At only 38 years old Ted has accomplished a lot, but one look at the vision of 16 Creative, and it is safe to say “the best is yet to come!”
