Delve into the life of WWF wrestling great “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase in this fresh documentary. The Price of Fame is now available on DVD.
Everybody’s got a price
The Million Dollar Man is easily one of the greatest wrestling heels of all time. The villain was active for a good long time, with two runs in the WWE (at the time, the WWF), one lasting about a decade. Post Federation, DiBiase went to WCW, and has wrestled all around the world as well.
Now, DiBiase’s son Ted DiBiase jr. (himself a wrestler) has produced a documentary about his dad, along with filmmaker Peter Ferriero. The movie explores not only the elder DiBiase’s career, but also his relationship with his son. And of course, his journey post-wrestling plays a big part in the film. That’s almost as interesting, as it’s seen him get into his own ministry. It’s been a varied life indeed, to put it mildly.
“’The Price of Fame’ shows that fame, money, power and prestige are not what’s important in life,” said DiBiase Sr. “Devotion to family and friends, giving of yourself to others and building strong character and integrity – these are life’s priceless commodities, and are far more rewarding than anything money can buy. I don’t want to be remembered as a wrestling legend, but someone who, through much grace and mercy, overcame many mistakes. I want to be known as a husband, father, grandfather and friend who left a legacy of selfless love and devotion.”
The Price of Fame is available right now on DVD, and hits stores today.
