Jonathan Snowden of the Bleacher Report recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase Sr. During the interview, DiBiase spoke about how his evil laugh originated.
“That’s funny. The laugh. That laugh is actually an extension of how I laugh. I naturally laugh kind of like that, though not to that extreme.
“We used to do separate interviews for every market back then. They would set up a little sound booth area, a room in the auditorium. And Vince happened to be walking by when I was doing mine, and I cocked my head and laughed at the end of my interview. He stuck his head in the door, and he looked at me and said “That’s it. That is the Million Dollar Man.” And he said “I want you to start and end every interview with that laugh.” And that’s how it happened.”
