Ted Dibiase Issues Statement On His WWE Release
Ted Dibiase issued the following statement at his official website, MillionDollarMan.com, about his recent release from WWE.
To my fans, friends, and supporters,
I was released from the WWE Thursday, Oct. 26th due to cutbacks by the WWE. I was released along with Tim Horner.
I am thankful for my time in the WWE and look at my tenure there as a time of obedience to my Savior, Jesus Christ. When I went back to the WWE, I did so with some reluctance of how it might affect my ministry and was very comfortable being in full time evangelism. God brought to mind what I had preached to so many that we must use our sphere of influence to seek and save the lost. What greater sphere of influence could I have than the business I had spent most of my life in? During my time there, many doors began to open and I found myself witnessing Christ to open ears and open hearts. I realized that this was now my ministry. The bible says that everything is for a season and I knew this time in the WWE would be for a season. I just didn’t know how long that season would last. As that season in my life closes I am back home and back in full time evangelism with speaking engagements all over the US and Canada already being scheduled.
God confirmed to me that this move was in His perfect will just two days after I was released from the WWE. I was already scheduled to speak for Promise Keepers Canada in Regina, Saskatchewan. As I shared the gospel Saturday morning and gave an altar call to a thousand men, so many responded that men were backed up the isle, not able to get to the front. Later I was told that it was the largest response to an invitation they had ever had there. I wept as I saw all those men humbling themselves before God and it was humbling to know that He had just used me as His instrument to do it.
I will miss my friends in the WWE and I wish them all well, but I have no doubt that I am right where God wants me to be. Many of you have been praying for me and continue to. I both thank you and cherish your prayers. Please continue to pray that God give me wisdom to see the doors He’s opening and favor with those He allows me to witness to.
As I write to you I have already been asked to speak at another Promise Keepers Canada meeting as well as be a regular guest on a weekly Canadian Christian sports talk show. It seems that God keeps sending me back to Canada and that’s ok. I’ve made many great friends there who tell me that their country is very hungry for God. So I guess that’s right where I need to be! Please keep me in your prayers. Please pray for people to turn to God, both here at home and in Canada.
That’s it for now. As things get ramped back up for Heart of David Ministries I will keep you all posted. I pray God richly bless each and every one of you. Until next time and forever I am,

Former WWE Star Lanny Poffo Dies at 68
Former WWE star Lanny ‘The Genius’ Poffo has reportedly died at the age of 68, according to his close friend “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, although no cause of death has been given at the time of this writing.
Poffo made his in-ring debut with the All-South Wrestling Alliance back in 1974, and also wrestled for a number of promotions such as the National Wrestling Alliance where he won a tag-team title with his father, Angelo.
Poffo debuted for WWE back in 1985 where he would be known as “Leaping Lanny Poffo” and “The Genius.”
Poffo would return to WWE back in 2015 to induct his brother, ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, into the WWE Hall of Fame in a touching induction ceremony ahead of WrestleMania 31.
“With a very, very heavy heart, I’ve been asked to let everyone know about the passing of our friend and colleague Lanny Poffo, The Genius,” Duggan said on Twitter.
Braun Strowman Talks Brock Lesnar Shooting On Him at Royal Rumble
WWE superstar Braun Strowman has had a number of memorable moments during his career at WWE, but none are quite like the 2018 Royal Rumble where Brock Lesnar got upset with Strowman for catching him with a knee.
Lesnar didn’t take to kindly and immediately hit Strowman with a flurry of legitimate punches, including a right hand to his jaw.
“Shit got real” Strowman said, during an interview with BT Sport.
“I mean, at the end of the day it’s two scary guys, two dominant males, not wanting to give an inch to either one, and we took it from each other. Things happen. We’re not playing, we’re not ballet, we’re not badminton. We’re physical. He’s [Lesnar] 300lbs, of just unadulterated animalistic beast and I’m a 385lbs monster. Things happen. At the end of the day, we made one hell of a segment, that’s what really happened.”
“I pat myself on the back. I think I’m the only person in history to take an overhand right from Brock Lesnar and not get knocked out. Anytime you get in the ring with “The Beast” and mix it up, the bigger the challenge the better. If you’re not wrestling the best, then who’d you beat?”
