The "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase

What can you say about Theodore Marvin "Ted" DiBiase, Sr.?
I mean that hasn't already been said.
He was born on January 18, 1954 in Omaha, Nebraska to female pro wrestler wrestler Helen Hild. His stepfather, pro wrestler "Iron" Mike DiBiase passed away in the ring of a heart attack when Ted was just 15.
He was trained by wrestling legends Dory Funk, Jr. and Terry Funk.
If anyone has wrestling in their blood it's Ted DiBiase.
To list all of his accomplishments would take a blog by itself.
Or you could just write a book, which Ted did, called "Every Man Has His Price: The True Story of Wrestling's Million-Dollar Man
Even though retired from active wrestling, he makes occasional appearances on WWE programs from time to time.
But right now his passion is his promotion, Power Wrestling Alliance. The PWA events are a combined Christian/wrestling event, because Ted is a born-again Christian. He sometimes works with another fellow born-again Christian, Nikita Koloff (Nelson Scott Simpson), at the events.
All three of his sons, Mike DiBiase, Ted DiBiase, Jr. and Brett are professional wrestlers.
On May 26, 2008, Ted DiBiase, Jr. continued his father's wrestling legacy by debuting in the WWE.
