“I loved my career in the WWE and I will forever be thankful for the opportunity to work in that industry,” DiBiase said in the release. “Leaving a job you love is not easy, but I believe so strongly in the future of CollegeGarageSale.com that I knew it was time to change my focus.”

CollegeGarageSale.com is an e-commerce website with users in all 50 states and more than 30 countries. Listings on the websites only cost a $1.00 and the company donates 10 cents of every listing back to the school of the seller’s choice.
