|The Million Dollar Champ!|

Virgil had a price for the Million Dollar Man. For years, he played the "manservant" to Ted DiBiase's evil millionaire character. While that's the character he's best known for, Mike Jones started off under the name Soul Train Jones and held the AWA International Heavyweight title and the AWA Southern tag team titles with Rocky Johnson.
After his brief stint in Memphis, he headed north to the WWF. There, Jones was paired with DiBiase. In the beginning, he did very little wrestling, which I didn't understand, as he had been successful elsewhere. By the time he really started becoming active in the ring though, he and DiBiase split. Virgil was aided by Roddy Piper in getting his freedom and winning the Million Dollar belt from DiBiase. It was the only gold Virgil would hold in the WWF.

After the feud with the Million Dollar Man, Virgil pretty much became a jobber before leaving the WWF. He came to WCW and worked as the head of security for the nWo. Oh yeah, they changed his name to Vincent, a direct jab to WWF owner Vince McMahon. Never the less, the I don't remember Vincent doing much wrestling there either. At one point toward the end of his tenure in WCW, he joined the West Texas Rednecks as Curly Bill.
