WWE legend Virgil, famous for being the "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase's personal bodyguard and assistant, has died, his family announced Wednesday. He was just 61 years old...
quote:

Virgil -- real name Michael Jones -- dealt with serious health issues in recent years ... including several strokes and a dementia diagnosis.

Jones made his wrestling debut in 1985 ... and would go on to compete for promotions like Championship Wrestling Association, where he won the heavyweight title, as well as tag team championship with Rocky Johnson.

He then moved to the WWE, where he gained popularity alongside DiBiase ... often carrying his money and protecting him from opponents -- before eventually turning on him at Summerslam 1991 and defeating him at WrestleMania VII.

After a brief stint with the National Wrestling Conference, Jones debuted with WCW under the name Vincent, becoming a member of nWo as the head of security.

I wonder if Ted Dibiase will send him off with a $100 bill stuffed in his mouth.
