+ Kurt Angle: Olympic Gold Medalist
There have been several athletes in the WWE who have competed in various sports all over the world, including football, hockey, and boxing, but only one superstar is notable for being an Olympic gold medalist. 
In the 1996 Olympics, Kurt Angle defeated Abbas Jadidi of Iran to win the gold in men’s freestyle wrestling. He did so under severe pain, as Angle competed with two fractured cervical vertebrae, two herniated discs, a severe neck injury, and four pulled muscles in his neck. Despite this, a true testament of Angle’s will and determination, he was able to defeat Jadidi to win the gold, with a broken freakin’ neck!
