• Hall Of Famer Starts Petition For WWE To Acknowledge Him As An Official 1x WWF Champion

Ted DiBiase Sr. received the WWF World Heavyweight Championship from André The Giant on the very first edition of WWF Main Event (February 1988) and he even wrestled a couple of tag team matches on house shows as the WWF Champion for a few days, before WWF President Jack Tunney vacated the title.

However, because of Jack Tunney’s decision to strip The Million Dollar Man of the Title, the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) is not acknowledging his title reign.

The official reason being, that André was not allowed to just sell the Title to DiBiase, so it wouldn’t count as an official reign.

The 2010 WWE Hall of Famer, who appears on NXT TV nowadays and is even involved in a storyline there, has now started a petition to get WWE to actually start acknowledging his World title reign after all.

The petition can be found by tapping here (it seems like Ted wants fans to sign up to his website to get regular updates from him. He can also push his merchandize this way).

Here’s what Ted posted on Twitter:

“Everyone’s got a price for the #MillionDollarMan, even Andre the Giant.

In 1988, Andre helped me win the championship from @HulkHogan.

@WWE doesn’t recognize this as an official title reign.

With the help of the #WWEUniverse we can #MakeItOfficial”
