The Price of Fame explores the life of Ted Dibiase, "Million Dollar Man” and his family. They built a Legacy in the ring, but the lasting impact will be felt for generations outside the ring. Discover what the Price of Fame was for Ted, and what he found that changed everything, something Priceless.
Ted DiBiase, WWE Hall Of Fame pro wrestler, aka as the villainous “Million Dollar Man.” A second generation wrestler, Ted is the son of “Iron” Mike DiBiase. Ted became a professional wrestler in 1975, but his big break came in 1987 when he became a part of the WWF. After his image was made into action figures, characters in video games and his face on everything from T-shirts to pin-ball machines, he ended his active career at the end of 1993 due to a neck injury. Ted spent the rest of the 90s as a ringside commentator & manager. Since then, Ted has authored a book about his life entitled Every Man Has His Price, and now is a full time evangelist and motivational speaker.

My Review: I confess, I was unsure when asked to review this one. I have never been a fan of wrestling, so I seemed to be an unlikely person to ask. Because of movies, I did recognize Andre the Giant (Princess Bride) and Shawn Michaels (The Resurrection of Gavin Stone)...and other names were familiar because my kids watched in the 80s and I remember hearing them talk about the wrestlers.
Actually, I found The Price of Fame interesting. I was more intrigued by the themes of forgiveness and redemption. Healing the wounds of a marriage that could have easily broken is an issue that can resonate with nearly anyone. And, while I did not convert to a wrestling fan, the behind-the scenes look at that world did keep my interest. Fans will certainly enjoy it, but this autobiographical documentary will keep the interest of others too.
