Kurt Angle Revealed His Unexpected Career Choice For When He’s Done With Pro Wrestling

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.
