Ted DiBiase Reveals He Has 'Severe Brain Trauma'
The cost of a 20-year career
Ted DiBiase is continuing to feel the effects of his in-ring career.
During a recent episode of Everybody's Got A Pod, the WWE Hall of Famer spoke about his current health situation, saying:
"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," said DiBiase.
The Million Dollar Man retired from active competition in 1993. He claimed earlier in the same podcast that he called it a day sooner than most of his peers in order to enjoy a long and comfortable life.
DiBiase recently noted that he is signed to a WWE Legends Deal.
His son (former WWE star Ted DiBiase Jr.) has been charged with stealing millions of dollars of state money intended for low-income individuals and needy families in Mississippi.
His other son Brett (a former WWE developmental prospect) pleaded guilty for his part in the same scandal and could face up to five years in prison.
The Mississippi Department of Human Services sued Ted himself for almost $2 million last year.
