Before he became known as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all-time, Angle established himself as one of the best freestyle wrestlers to ever walk the Earth. Angle — after winning two NCAA Championships and a World Championship — entered the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta with a broken neck. Overcoming his serious injury, Angle won the gold medal in the heavyweight weight class. In the two-plus decades that have followed, Angle became known around the world due to his accomplishments within WWE. Angle retired from in-ring competition following WrestleMania 35 but remains a part of the company. Angle is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, as well as the International Sports Hall of Fame.
