Ted DiBiase Net Worth $1 Million

Ted was born to Helen Nevins, a wrestler, and Ted Wills, a singer and entertainer, but in 1959 was legally adopted by Mike “Iron” DiBiase, also a wrestler, so it is no wonder that he was predestined to became successful in wrestling. Ted DiBiase’s descent is mostly English and German, but includes Italian too. After matriculating from Creighton Preparatory High School he enrolled at West Texas State University on a football scholarship, but after a serious injury in his senior year, he dropped out and directed his efforts towards a wrestling career.

Ted DiBiase began his professional career in wrestling in 1974 as a referee, but within a year he started wrestling in the Mid-South Wrestling League (MSW), in which he spent the next four years. In 1979, Ted began competing in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), and soon won the title of the first champion of the North American Championship. These engagements provided the basis for Ted DiBiase’s net worth.

Subsequently, he returned to MSW and stayed there ’til 1987. Prior to returning to WWF in 1987, under the name “The Million Dollar Man”, he also competed in All Japan Pro Wrestling between 1983 and 1987. The WWF labeled Ted as the most despised villain with an evil laugh as his trademark. His appearance consisted of dollar-sign-covered suit with gold studs and the custom made, diamond-encrusted “Million Dollar Championship Belt” which is currently locked in Titan Towers in Stamford , Connecticut. All these involvements, besides raising Ted DiBiase’s popularity, certainly increased his net worth.

In 1992, alongside Irwin R. Schyster (aka IRS), Ted formed Money Inc, the tag team which won the WWF Tag Team Championship three times in a row. Apart from this title, Ted DiBiase’s most notable titles, of the 30 which he won in his career, include Missouri Title, WWF North American Heavyweight Title, Central States Title, NWA United National Heavyweight Title as well as Mid-South Tag Team Titles and UWF Team Titles. All these accomplishments helped Ted to add a lot of revenue to the overall size of his wealth.

Additionally, Ted DiBiase created the Million Dollar Championships, his own title. Apparently, in 1988 Ted bought a WWF Championship Belt from Andre the Giant, but the federation has never officially recognized as an title reign.

In 1994, Ted DiBiase retired from wrestling, but has occasionally returned as a guest commentator, and later as the manager of, among others, The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin. In 2010, Ted was inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame.

When it comes to his personal life, Ted DiBiase was married to Jaynet Foreman between 1973 and 1980 and with whom he has one child. With his second wife, Melanie Kennedy(m. 1981), Ted has two children. All of his three sons are involved in wrestling, and continued where their father left off.

Ted DiBiase has also published three books so far. As an ordained Christian minister and founder of Hearth of David Ministry, he travels all around the globe and ministers to conferences and camps such as Youth Of The Nation and Promise Keepers.

Quotes

#Quote
1Money isn't everything. It's the only thing.
2[on the late Randy Savage] The real gift of a good wrestler is Improv, and your ability to read a crowd, and know what to do instinctively; Randy was very good at that. If you're going to be very good in our industry, you have to be an athlete as well as an entertainer.
3You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit against the wind, and you don't write checks that your body can't cash!
4Everybody's got a price for the Million Dollar Man.
