On an episode of his weekly ‘Everybody’s Got a Pod’ podcast, WWF Legend ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase spoke about Mick Foley’s unconventional in-ring style.

Here’s what DiBiase said:

“Well, I mean, hey, I think the world of Mick. Regardless of style and in which way. He does; he’s the best at what he does. In my opinion, in terms of that style, I couldn’t think of anybody who did a better job or was more over. That’s the whole thing: real, make it believable, and know how to do that.

However, in real life, he was one of the nicest guys you’d ever meet. And it’s kind of like that. We weren’t like we weren’t ever there. I mean, when I was coming up, Mick came after me. You know what I’m saying?”

Then Ted spoke about Bray Wyatt – the son of his former Money Inc. Tag Team partner IRS – passing away recently.

Here’s what The Million Dollar Man had to say about Wyatt:

“I didn’t know him very well. I didn’t have a lot of time around when. But I know. But Windham and my younger son Brett, who had been in training for a while, had health issues that I don’t know how many. It’s like every time he would get well, he’d get hurt again. And so finally I said you won’t be able to do this. But Windham, while he was in training after they started the wrestling school, he was like one of his best friends. It’s like, I thought the kid was a great kid. Hey, man, Mike Rotunda is good.

It’s like there’s a lot of decent people, and there’s a lot of people you might even say, oh, man, they’re a great wrestler, but oh, my gosh. It’s not somebody you want to hang out with. But Mike was a stand-up, stand-out person and a good friend; his kids are great. And I called him and just got to speak with him briefly. He’s holding up as well as you could. Right. I mean, I’ve got my son Brett, who is 35. And, like I said, Brett was right there with Windham. And when they were in training, I knew rough the grapevine that Windham was scheduled to go back this September, and they were going to.

And it’s just sad. It’s just we’re not supposed to bury our children. It’s not supposed to happen that way. And it’s just. I can’t even imagine that. I mean, when I first saw both things, Terry, because of my relationship, I’ve cried a lot, and real men do cry.”

Ted DiBiase is mostly remembered for his time in Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation, where he became known as the evil ‘Million Dollar Man’.

He wrestled for them from May 1987 until August 1993 and retired from the sport of professional wrestling soon thereafter, but returned to the WWF in January 1994 and worked as an on-screen manager, who even had his own stable ‘The Million Dollar Corporation’ until he left the promotion in May 1996 to join Ted Turner’s WCW a few months later.
