➝ [Epub] ❦ Ted DiBiase (WWE) By Ted DiBiase ➧ – Sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk

Very sanitised book, almost to a point of bring like a children s book But some good wrestling stories. Ted Dibiase s autobiography, The Million Dollar Man, is the latest release in the WWE s officially licensed batch of sanitized, neutered autobiographies that do not carry the voice of the purported author Co author Tom Caiazzo writes in a very simple, concise, neutral style that conveys all the excitement of a lasagna recipe.At the same time, Dibiase does have an interesting story to tell TMDM is one of the few wrestling books I ve read that gives the reader some incite into the Mid South territory under Bill Watts, and he also shares some great tales of the Amarillo territory run by the Funks The most notable part of Dibiase s career his 6 year run as a top heel in the World Wrestling Federation however, is briefly covered in about two chapters The back half of the book spends far time covering the topic of Dibiase s first book, his life as a born again Christian and minister Given that this story falls largely into the If you ve seen one, you ve seen em all category with the usual I was an adulterous drug addict and then I found Jesus narrative, it did not exactly grab my attention Sting, Bill Watts, Vince Russo, and Goldust have all published the same basic story of turning to religion from the wrestling business.As the only double second generation wrestler I can think of his mother and stepdad were both accomplished wrestlers, Dibiase has an interesting and unique story to tell Sadly, that story is really not told here Recommended for fans of the Mid South Wrestling Association and or UWF, but that s about it.

I love wrestling biographies I usually plow through them in 2 to 3 days Like any genre, they range from the great Mick Foley s first 2 books to the not so great The Rock s pointless tome THE MILLION DOLAR MAN falls somewhere in the middle.Ted Dibiase started wrestling pre WWF, when the business was still divided up into territories This makes for diverse experiences and, hence, interesting stories All of the I remember that moments that I read these books for are in there The vignettes before he arrived in the WWF The duplicate referees in the Hulk Hogan Andre the Giant match How much for the plastic surgery, brother Billionaire Ted showing up in the nWo Good nostalgic stuff The problem is it s too repetitive Dibiase will say something like Vince McMahon explained the Million Dollar Man Character to me and then you ll have a testimonial from Pat Patterson saying Vince McMahon explained the Million Dollar Man character to Ted Also, with a story that wraps up with a guy being born again, there s not much build to that revelation It could have had detail on his life of sin, instead of just a sentence here and there saying I drank a lot and cheated on my wife Of course, he did have a book come out before this one Maybe it s all in that one.All in all a fast read with a good amount of nostalgia. I really enjoyed this book Although it reads like someone else was physically writing it, the story of the greatest heel in wrestling history is one of the most interesting wrestling tales ever Ted DiBiase is a legend If nothing else, this book was an amazing history lesson about one of the greatest careers ever. I really like learning about the lives of people in the WWE I gave this 3 5 stars because there were some parts of the autobiography left me dragging but Ted Dibiase is one of the greatest of all time and I still adore him as much.Everybody has a price for the Million Dollar Man. I thoroughly enjoyed this autobiography I grew up watching pro wrestling in Arkansas from the Mid South wrestling territory so I saw Ted DiBiase from the beginning of his wrestling career I have read another book about him Every Man Has His Price which is also very good Ted was one of my favorite wrestlers when he was a good guy and he was even fun to watch as a heel Ted is very honest in this book about his successes and failures, both professionally and in his personal life The book is classy and does not unnecessarily tear down other people while still remaining honest I especially enjoyed the details about his time in the Mid South area because I grew up with that He had some classic angles and matches which I m happy are preserved on YouTube It is great to see Ted has turned his life over to the Lord and now is a minister Last year, I went and saw a movie about his life which was also very good I highly recommend this book, especially for Christians who are fans of pro wrestling. Great readGreat read coasted through it quickly Ted was one of the best in the golden age of wrestling Highly recommend
