WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase issued his son Ted's departure from WWE in a statement posted at

"As many of you know, my son, Ted Jr. has decided not to re-sign with the WWE. His decision is not based on dissatisfaction with the WWE, but a decision based on not wanting to spend so much of his life away from his family. I applaud that decision. As much as I loved the wrestling business, being away from my family and the temptations that come along with it, nearly destroyed me and my family.

"I never wanted my sons to be in the business for that very reason. But I knew that I had to let them find out for themselves. The birth of Ted’s first son, did just that. Yes, I still love wrestling and so does Ted Jr. But, 'Everything has a price!' My son learned more quickly than I did, that the price of fame is often far greater than the rewards!!"

Powell's POV: Ted Jr. was very complimentary of WWE run and didn't close the door on a future return. For those who missed it, he announced on Monday that he opted against re-signing with the company.
