All wrestlers sadly pay a price for their exploits in the ring and now WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase has revealed that he’s been told that he’s dealing with brain trauma.

Ted DiBiase entered the wrestling business in the mid-seventies and competed over two decades in what turned out to be a legendary career. Although DiBiase battled in Mid-South Wrestling, the NWA, and All Japan Pro Wrestling, he is best remembered for his run in WWE where everybody had a price for The Million Dollar Man.

Speaking on Everybody’s Got A Pod, DiBiase revealed, however, that all his success came at a huge price for himself as he is now battling with brain trauma:

“I don’t have Alzheimer’s and I don’t have dementia but they said, ‘Ted, you have something — we just simply call it severe brain trauma.’ … I only wrestled maybe almost 20 years, so I’m not surprised I might have a little brain trauma. What it affects is my memory, and they say it’d be easier for [me] to remember something [I] did 40 or 50 years ago, but the short-term memory — some of the stuff like now — it’s bits and pieces.”

The Million Dollar Man has recently been going through a tough spell in his private life with his son, former WWE star Ted DiBiase Jr. recently being indicted on charges that could see him face up to 20 years in prison.
