Ted DiBiase - WWE's "Million Dollar Man" by Ted Dibiase
Ted DiBiase, known to his fans as 'The Million Dollar Man', is considered by many to be the greatest 'heel' wrestler of all time. Raised around the wrestling ring from childhood, he has been involved in wrestling all his life, learning early on that triumph could lead to tragedy when his stepfather, the well-remembered 'Iron Mike' DiBiase, sensationally died in the ring. When the WWE created the Million Dollar Man character for him, DiBiase played the role to the hilt, surrounding himself with money, limousines and all the luxuries that went along with life in the fast lane. Among the most flamboyant wrestlers of the 1980s, he rapidly rose to the top of his profession, where he remained for twenty years. Sidelined by a neck injury he began a second career as a manager, working with some of the biggest stars in wrestling, from Andre the Giant, Bam Bam Bigelow and King Kong Bundy to a newcomer known as The Ringmaster -- who would later become Stone Cold Steve Austin. Only recently ending his WWE career, DiBiase has seen many of the biggest Superstars rise to fame and, in some cases, disastrously fall.Now, in this fascinating book, he steps back and gives readers a full and frank first-hand account of what he saw and experienced over three action-packed decades.
