WWF's Million-Dollar Man Speaks at SU November 6
SALISBURY, MD---The man responsible for popularizing the sleeper hold in the former World Wrestling Federation speaks at Salisbury University Thursday, November 6, in his new role as a Christian minister.
Ted DiBiase, known as “The Million-Dollar Man” during his Wrestlemania days in the 1980s and early ‘90s, takes the stage of Holloway Hall Auditorium at 7 p.m., following a brief performance by the SU Gospel Choir.
DiBiase credits his friend, music promoter Rendy Lovelady, for steering him toward the ministry. The one-time manager of such bands as Van Halen and Motley Crüe, Lovelady quit the rock and roll business and refocused his career on managing Christian bands, including Jars of Clay. Published in 1997, DiBiase’s autobiography, Every Man Has His Price, chronicles his life in the WWF and his path to the ministry.
SU student group Brothers and Sisters for Christ (BASIC) sponsors the event. DiBiase’s lecture lecture is free and the public is cordially invited. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
