WWE legend Ted DiBiase blames wrestling for suffering memory loss from 'severe brain trauma'

Ted DiBiase, the WWE wrestler known as the "Million Dollar Man," recently disclosed that he is experiencing short-term memory loss attributed to 'severe brain trauma' resulting from his years in professional wrestling.

In a recent episode of his podcast, Ted acknowledged his condition and clarified that it is not Alzheimer's disease.

"I don't have dementia, but they have informed me that I have something they simply refer to as severe brain trauma," he noted.

According to a report from Wrestling Observer, he responded with surprise when he was informed about his brain trauma.


"I mean, I've been wrestling for nearly two decades, so it's not surprising that I might have some degree of brain trauma," he claimed.

"What it affects is my memory and they say it'll be easier for you to remember something you did 40 or 50 years ago but the short-term memory, some of the stuff right now, it's bits and pieces."

Ted, who is currently 69 years old, achieved significant success in his wrestling career. He became the inaugural North American champion of WWE, known as WWF at the time, and a three-time tag-team champion.

Ted DiBiase WWE career

His journey in the world of professional wrestling began in the mid-1970s, and he was honored with induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2010.

When he joined WWF, his schedule initially involved wrestling for three consecutive weeks, performing in 21 different cities, followed by a one-week break at home.

Eventually, the schedule was modified to have 10 days on, three days off, four days on, and three days off, allowing for a bit more time at home. Ted expressed gratitude for still being alive, attributing it to a higher power.
