They say money can buy you just about anything, and it was true in Ted DiBiase’s case in 2019. He made a surprising return to WWE during the RAW Reunion episode and soon became a short-term champion.

After winning the 24/7 Championship from Candice Michelle, Alundra Blayze would repeat what she did in WCW back in 1995: throwing a WWE title into the trash can. At least, that was her plan.

Right when she was about to drop the title, The Million Dollar Man came out and made an offer to Blayze that she could not refuse. Give him the title for a stack of hundreds of dollars. She agreed and DiBiase became the first-ever 24/7 Champion who won the title using the strength of money. 

His title reign, like that of most 24/7 Champions, was a short one. When DiBiase tried to get out of the arena in his limo, Drake Maverick pinned him inside the car.
