The former WWE superstar, and son of Ted DiBiase Sr., has a home valued at $1.5 million that federal authorities are seeking to seize.

According to a report by The Associated Press, court documents were filed back in June on the home, which is located in Madison, Mississippi. Authorities indicted Brett DiBiase earlier this year in a large public corruption case.

A report by the state showed that millions of dollars were funneled through the DiBiase family name. That includes Ted DiBiase, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.

Brett DiBiase worked with the Mississippi Department of Human Services. Ted DiBiase Jr. and his wife were attempting to sell their home when agents took over the case. 

Regarded as one of the poorest states in the U.S., Mississippi denied more than 98 percent of individuals welfare during the time of the incident.

Over $94 million in questionable spending was found by a state auditor. A report by the Clarion Ledger, a newspaper in Mississippi, found that more than $2 million in welfare funds was paid to Christian wrestling ministry of Ted DiBiase Sr.

Ted DiBiase Jr. was a two-time WWE tag team champion and competed for the promotion from 2007-13. WWE also featured him in the movie The Marine 2.

Daniel Cormier has become a wanted man as he enters into retirement.

The former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion announced plans to leave MMA after falling to Stipe Miocic at UFC 252 this past weekend. And WWE officials are ready to go after “DC” for his services.

Cormier, who competed for the United States at the Summer Olympics as a wrestler, has worked the commentary booth for UFC events in the past. According to Dave Meltzer, the WWE and FOX are both after him.

With FOX, Cormier would likely join the SmackDown announce team. So, with his history in MMA and wrestling, he could hold his own for any in-ring action if it presents itself.

WWE officials have already approached Cormier once before to join the promotion. Basically, they wanted him to join in a different role at that time.

“I got an offer to work that new show, WWE Backstage,” he told BT Sport. “It didn’t work with the new relationship with ESPN. But we are constantly trying to get me involved in the product.

“As a big-time fan of the WWE, nothing makes me happier. I’ve got some great opportunities, I’m lucky. I’ve got some things outside of the Octagon that’s gonna carry me for a long time.

Cormier also coaches youth wrestling as the head coach of the Gilroy High School team in California. He was a teammate of former WWE wrestler Cain Velasquez at the American Kickboxing Academy gym in San Jose, California.

Possible Royal Rumble Appearance

Even the chance inside a WWE ring is limited, he wouldn’t mind that sweet feeling of eliminating someone from the Royal Rumble. Cormier expressed his desire to Sports Illustrated.

“I’d love a Royal Rumble moment where I throw a dude into the ropes and I clothesline his a– over the top, or I dropkick somebody over the top rope,” Cormier said. “And I’ll take my bump and get thrown out.

“Let me chase somebody down, clothesline him with a Bradshaw-Layfield clothesline from hell and eliminate somebody from the Royal Rumble, then throw me over the top. Pro wrestling? I’m all in.”

In conclusion, there are lots of opportunities out there for Cormier. Therefore, be could work solely for WWE or spread his skills across several platforms.
