I just recently re-watched Royal Rumble 1992. Having a worker the caliber of Ted DiBiase as one of the first two entrants makes sense, yet he was tossed over in 1:18. He barely lasted longer than Jerry Sags. Was he in the doghouse or
working hurt or something? What was the point of wasting him in such a throwaway manner?
He was working hurt for most of 92 and 93. I always did think it was a waste for him not to be in there with Flair, though.
