Back in September, Olympic gold medalist and former WWE Champion Kurt Angle revealed that he’d be “taking a break” from pro wrestling when he’s done with TNA. That means not re-signing, not signing with WWE, not going to Japan… an honest-to-goodness break. He’s done it all, right? What’s he got left to prove?
In a blog post on his official website, Angle wrote that while his dream was to become an Olympic champion, he also had an unexpected passion: becoming a teacher.
My “long shot” dream was to be an Olympic Champion. Winning gold was my lifelong dream. I also had another passion, to be a teacher…to teach our youth. I have a college degree in education. I accomplished my ultimate dream, winning gold in the 1996 Olympics, but now that I’ve accomplished it, I want to use my college education to help others and to teach others.
Now that I am entering this part of my life, a time to slow down and reflect on all that I have personally achieved, I have a story that I want to share to help those people! I want to help others accomplish their goals and I can use my education to achieve that.
… and he’ll do so with intensity, integrity and intelligence. Let’s just hope he’s not teaching any Sex Ed classes.
