DiBiase living out his dream

TIFTON — The “Million Dollar Dream” was the finishing move of “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase during his wrestling career.

“Million Dollar Dream” could also be a good description of the life that is being led by DiBiase’s son, Ted Jr.

Ted DiBiase Jr. is a member of the “Legacy” faction in World Wrestling Entertainment, and he, along with fellow “Legacy” members Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton, are among the scheduled WWE superstars that will be in Albany Saturday for a 7:30 p.m. show at the James H. Gray Sr. Civic Center.

Not only is DiBiase living his dream of being a professional wrestler, he has also expanded his resume as his feature film debut, “The Marine 2,” will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray Dec. 29.

In a telephone interview from Jackson, Miss., Wednesday, DiBiase said with his wrestling schedule, as well as the promotion of his movie, “My life has been crazy lately.”

DiBiase explained his life usually has him doing house shows during the weekend, the “Raw” television show on Monday, and time off on Tuesday and Wednesday. But the promotion of the movie has taken those days away from him.

Even without much time off, DiBiase loved the experience of making the film, which was shot in Thailand.

“It was a dream come true for me. I reallly enjoyed it,” said DiBiase. “I have seen the final product, and it is really a good movie. The special effects are awesome, and the acting is great.”

Among DiBiase’s co-stars are Temuera Morrison, Michael Rooker and Lara Cox.

Morrison was Jengo Fett in “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones,” while Rooker has been in several notable movies, including “Days of Thunder” with Tom Cruise and “Cliffhanger” with Sylvester Stallone.

Cox plays DiBiase’s wife, Robin, in the film.

    For a team to score 10 runs in a single game, it might be assumed that they ran the bases well. The Tiftarea Academy Panthers did some of that Tuesday evening in a 10-4 win over their region rival, the Deerfield-Windsor Knights, but a good bit of their offense came because they walked the bases well. The team drew 11 of them, including a string of six straight.
