To catch you up, NXT Superstar Cameron Grimes embraced the GameStop stock insanity of early 2021 to become a wealthy Superstar.
Now, WWE has brought back Ted DiBiase to have some manner of a program with Grimes.
And if you have Grimes being rich, and the Million Dollar Man involved, then it’s pretty obvious why WWE is bringing the belt back.
With the Million Dollar Belt back in WWE, it will be interesting to see what fun it has in this latest iteration.

Update On Brian Christopher Wrongful Death Suit
Brian Christopher had a troubled life and was gone too soon, and we have an update on his wrongful death suit.
Brian Christopher’s father brought the suit over his wrongful death. Christopher is reported to have taken his own life in prison in 2018.
Brian Christopher’s wrongful death suit is, of course, being driven by his father, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.
Per reports, Christopher was in prison for a DUI charge. Lawler was lead to believe his son would receive substance abuse assistance while in prison, which the suit alleges he did not.
On top of that, the Lawler family filed the suit because they dispute that Brian Christopher took his own life.
So, the suit is moving forward, with a jury trial now being set for 2022. This case, as well as many others, no doubt hit delays in part due to the waning pandemic.
Lawler is seeking $3 million in damages via the Brian Christopher wrongful death suit.
But, perhaps more important, as part of the suit, Lawler is pushing for immediate changes in the county prison system that would help prevent future prisoner suicides.
