In an interview with the "Everybody's Got a Podcast" podcast, Ted DiBiase revealed whether he used steroids during his time as an active wrestler. DiBiase acknowledged trying to be cautious but admitted to using steroids to a limited extent.
“When I was in Mid-South. I was very cautious because, especially when you start to stick things in your body and how it’s going to react to it and all that. I was fairly cautious, but yeah, a little bit. And I say a little bit because it just helped.
It just helped enhance my look. But I wasn’t against a lot of guys. What or who am I thinking of? The Ultimate Warrior? Yep. Oh my gosh. And, of course, that’s all he had was a body. And I don’t know how much his steroid use had to do with his death”.
- DiBiase said.
DiBiase also confirmed that Vince McMahon had an interesting proposition for him. In the early stages, DiBiase used testosterone and wanted to help himself look as good as possible. However, he always had a dose of fear that steroids could damage his physical health.
DiBiase hasn't forgotten Warrior, and he still doesn't know if steroids are the reason for his untimely death. “At the beginning, I can remember the one thing Vince said to me as he said, ‘Teddy, I want to look a little more visible in the gym.’ And I got the message.
I may have at the beginning taken some like testosterone, but I only took it as a kick of what I was doing, and I did not continue to take it. Just personally, I was afraid to do that. I don’t know, it’s kind of like You can do anything, and like you just said, that may have contributed to the Warriors’ death, I don’t know”.
