I just watched a so called professional wrestler lay down like a cowardly dog. Ted Dibiase Jr showed why he will never be a star or even respectable. Being a coward is different from being cowardly. Today Ted was both. We have seen other wrestlers lay down HBK to JBL, Nash to Hogan. They never have any respect after their cowardice act is the common denominator. Ted should have fought hard win lose or draw he could not have lost. Orton may be the better wrestler, today Ted proved Orton is the better man also. Anybody who thinks Ted has main event talent just got a wake up call. Maybe Ted should fight Hornswoggle if he can find a backbone or grow a set of cajones. Cowards disgust me I can't pity a man who wets himself at every idle threat. Fighting hard is the easiest thing to do, losing is no shame if you at least try. Not fighting back out of fear is not heroic it is pathetic.
