In a recent interview with Vicksburg Post, former WWE Superstar Ted DiBiase Jr. talked about what his current life is all about, working with the Warrior Bonfire Project to help heal wounded veterans, and why he left WWE in 2013. Here’s what he commented on his WWE departure:

“There was a time in my career that I forgot what got me there, and I lost sight of my priorities, and my priorities shifted. All of a sudden I couldn’t make enough money, I couldn’t become famous enough, and I wanted more.

I woke up one day and I hated the person I saw, because I had this moment staring in the mirror where I hated that guy. The Lord led me to 1 John 2:15 which says ‘Do not love the world or anything in the world for if you do, the love of the Father is not in you.’

I left WWE without real security, and know that I serve a big God. It’s been the hardest, most trying, most amazing year or so of my life. I’ve grown as a man, as a father and as a husband.”
