The Wrestleline Report-Tuesday

To Jim Kirchner, The Iron Shiek was billed as being a 1968 olympic medalist, but actually was eliminated during his country's trials. He was the coach of two US olympic squads in the 70's, though. Ken Patera was an Olympic weight lifter and USA power lifter who won several medals, although I don't believe any of them were from Olympic games. There have also been numerous NCAA/collegiate and amateur wrestling champions to cross over into pro wrestling, but as far as I know, it's true, it's damn true that Kurt Angle is the only Olympic gold medalist in WWE history.
