Did you know Neil deGrasse Tyson was once a rough and tough wrestler? The “Scientist Supreme” – recently announced as the world’s newest (and already best) late night talk show host – used to be an amateur wrestler.

BroBible reports that “Tyson dropped the bomb on [wrestler Ken Anderson] that he was an amateur wrestler in his younger days.” The astrophysicist provided evidence to prove his hypothesis and Anderson quickly flashed it for all of Instagram to see:

Mother of fanciful-intelligent-being. Tyson looks like a mythological deity among mere common men, women, and children. Maybe his having this allegedly dormant power means Tyson could lift Thor’s hammer Mjolnir. He does know how heavy it is, after all.
