Wrestlers that went on to unexpected careers

Recommended Posts

Neil deGrasse Tyson, renowned astrophysicist, (I watched his cartoon character this morning with my kids on "Martha Speaks") wrestled for Harvard from 1977-80 or so. He was recruited to Cornell U, but by Dr. Carl Sagan, not coach Andy Noel.

Wow I did not know Neil deGrasse Tyson wrestled. I watch his specials on the science channel and listen to his lectures all the time. He really is one of (if not the most)the worlds most renowned astrophysicists. He is such an interesting person to listen to and learn from and I'm excited to hear that he wrestled for Harvard. If you have never heard him speak you should look him up on YouTube or the science channel.

Don't forget a Lehigh wrestler named Kilrain (I anot sure of the first name). He is now or was the head of the entire US Seals operations in Europe and made top rank.

 

 

Admiral Colin Kilrain

 

Yep. Also, Kilrain's wife was an astronaut who's flown 2 space flights and his great-great grandfather was bareknuckles heavyweight champion boxer Jake Kilrain who fought (and lost to) John L Sullivan.

Dang, now my story about my summers driving a forklift at a lumberyard don't seem so cool anymore. :toothygrin:

Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court John Roberts

Wasn't aware of this. Did he suffer alot of head trauma? Just wondering based on recent events?lol

Yeah, made the wrong decision on the law in the recent socialist medicine care decision. Goofy trying to make a legacy on such a flimsy interpretation of the law. Sell out isn't usually wrestler like.

Oh boy, here we go.

 

I might as well get my swipe in. Since you guys are already subsidizing the uninsured. But there is always hope you can turn it around and keep your $5k (and growing) annual deductible on top of the $8k (and growing) family plan. You are paying at least $13k outta your pocket before you have access to 'quality' healthcare that is paid by the insurance fatcats. Big business private insurance is an abject human failure.

Eric Tannenbaum, 4XAA at Michigan is a physician.

I wouldn't think that he would be practickin' already. Considering that he would have had to attend med school after getting his Bachelor's, he would then be onto residency.The whole process is about 10 years and I don't think Tannenbaum's been out of college that long.

He’s been an Orthopedic Surgeon near me for the last year or so.

What about Greg Warren AA at Mizzou and is now a comedian has released a few albums, acted in a few movies, had a comedy central special, appeared on late night with Craig Ferguson quite a few times.

Greg is still a great supporter of wrestling.

For several years he came to the Funny Bone on Columbus, Ohio to headline Ohio RTC fundraisers as well as having several public shows while in town. I watched one of his specials on Comedy Central prior to his first appearance and enjoyed, but I found him funniest when speaking to the wrestling audience because of all the material and spots he worked in that were wrestling specific. Over multiple years, he always worked new wrestling material in with some of his greatest hits from the years before.

Pretty sure Warren and Michael Symon both made donations to the Wrestle Against Autism tournament in central Ohio as well as events put on by Wrestlers in Business, Notre Dame College, Cleveland State, and NEO RTC I have attended.

As others were speaking of Michigan Men, Steve Luke attended grad school to be a pharmacist and was interested in working in a hospital setting while completing his residency. Lost track of him the last couple of years but have no doubt he has found success wherever he has landed.

I remember reading somewhere that Leonce Crump went on to become a preacher/Pastor at a church. Don't know how rare this is but found it interesting, as that is the same thing I ended up doing.

He was a good guy. Leonce was my first college match the year after he took 2nd at ncaas. Lol. He beat me as expected. Picked me up in a double leg and I was 7 feet in the air and the red told him to buy me down lightly and he did right to my back. After he pinned me I looked at my coach and all he did was shrug his shoulders.

Logan Paul is one of the largest social media influencer today. He is putting together a wrestling match with any other influence. He is offering up to a million dollars to any charity for the event. I made a post speaking about this under Logan Paul. Check it out.
