Ted DiBiase is one of the unluckiest men in wrestling. Late last year, he injured his wrist, which he was just healing from, and now news has broken that DiBiase is hurt again.

DiBiase posted the following message to his Twitter account updating fans.

DiBiase Posse last night I unfortunately broke my ankle. Can't catch a break lately. Ha, Well I guess I did n a way! Its ok tho, James 1:2-3

With this being his second injury in a short period of time, it looks like DiBiase could be in for a long wait until he sees that push he has been looking for.

When DiBiase first showed up in WWE, he teamed with Cody Rhodes and the two formed a group with Randy Orton known as Legacy.

While in the group, Rhodes and DiBiase made great strides in WWE and both men looked like they had bright futures in the company.

After the breakup of the faction, Rhodes went on to become one of SmackDown's more talked-about heels over the last year after adopting a masked gimmick and winning the IC title.

At one point, Dibiase was paired back with Rhodes to try and revitalize his career, but the angle did nothing more than push Rhodes as a heel, and DiBiase was once again without a direction.

Over the last several months, DiBiase had been making headway with fans by holding tailgating parties before events and labeling his fans the DiBiase Posse.

His idea was working and WWE started to push the young star by having him get the better of Hunico in the short feud the two had recently.

He got his own shirt recently, which is usually a good sign in WWE, but now it looks as if the son of the "Million Dollar Man" is going to have to wait some more.

I feel for DiBiase because an ankle injury is so hard to judge in terms of how long it will take for it to properly heel.

This could be a blessing in disguise, though, as often times, a superstar can come back from injury and get a bugger push than they left with.

I hope DiBiase heels up soon and does not find himself the recipient of one of WWE.com's "Future Endeavored" updates.
