Kurt Angle
24 Monday Aug 2009

After 30 years in the ring as an amateur and as a professional, Kurt Angle is at a crossroads in his life. Heralded as the only gold medal Olympic champion in the sport, he soon rocketed to stardom at the top of the professional wrestling world. So the question is, does he retire from the ring in the near future? If so, then what does the proud son of Pittsburgh pursue as a career? Angle envisages the silver screen.

Numerous wrestlers have been in films, and a few left the ring apron for a successful Hollywood career. Primo Carnera appeared in MIGHTY JOE YOUNG along with long time wrestlers turned thespians, Karl “Killer” Davis and Henry Kulky. THE WRESTLER, from 1974, showcased Sam Menacker, Vergne Gagne, Don Muraco, and Danny Hodge, among others. Roddy Piper’s film career is well noted for his portrayal of Nada in THEY LIVE in 1988. Hulk Hogan’s Thunder Lips character from ROCKY III propelled him to stardom in the wrestling world and decades later, between lack luster film and TV roles, a reality show debacle that chronicles the demise of his marriage. None other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson topples the competition in this category. Is Kurt Angle ready for his close up?
