    Professional Wrestling

    Yes, I know it is fake but sometimes entertaining....

    Question is this other than Chris Taylor in the 70's have any other ISU wrestlers gone on to Stardom in the professional wrestling ranks.....?

    I can't think of any, but I'll never forget seeing about nine guys gang up on Chris and toss him over the ropes in one of those "last man in the ring wins" matches. I saw it on TV, not in person. Would have been shortly after the olympics.

    Wasn't there two brothers that wrestled for Michigan that ended up in pro wrasslin' ?

    Chris was one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and know. A true gentle giant. He is missed by many.

    Pro Wrestling is the best soap opera on TV.

    It was the Steiner brothers - Scott (Big Poppa Pump) and I can't remember his brother's name.

    I have kinda always thought that the NBA was the best soap opera on TV but pro wrestling would be a close second

    A guy I worked with in Wisconsin wrestled in NAWF. It was actually pretty funny to see him out there taking a chair to the face.

    Anderson Wrestling: "Wrestle Like A Mad Man"

    He has met some WWE folk in this circuit.

    Rick Steiner. The Dog-Faced Gremlin. always wrestled with his headgear on and usually wore a Michigan lettermans jacket to the ring.

    Re: Professional Wrestling

    There are a lot of collegiate wrestlers who 'crossed over' to "pro" wrestling. A few off the top of my head...

    Scott and Rick Rechsteiner (Michigan) -- wrestled pro as "Steiner"
    Kurt Angle (Clarion)
    Brock Lesnar (Minnesota)
    Sylvester Terkay (NC State)
    Shelton Benjamin (Minnesota)
