    As someone who began proper freestyle wrestling at the age of 5 and went on to compete in H.S. and beyond, I have an utter disdain for that phony Big Time rasslin' B.S.

    But here's a nice list of NFLers who were proper wrestlers in H.S. and or College:
    Notable NFL Players that Wrestled:
    Stephen Neal OL (NE Patriots) 2x NCAA Champ, World Champ, and Super Bowl Winner
    Curly Culp DL (KC Chiefs)* NCAA Champ
    Warren Sapp DL (OAK Raiders)* FL State Champ
    Ray Lewis ILB (BAL Ravens)* 2x FL State Champ
    Bob Golic DT (CLE Browns)* OH State Champ
    Luis Castillo DT (SD Chargers)
    Fred Weary C (*HOU Texans) AL State Champ
    Coy Wire SS (BUF Bills) PA State Champ
    Roddy White WR (ATL Falcons) 2x SC State Champ
    Mike Patterson DT (PHI Eagles)
    Ronnie Brown RB (MIA Dolphins)
    Rhonde Barber CB (TB Bucs)
    Tiki Barber RB (NY Giants)
    Teddy Bruschi ILB (NE Patriots)*
    Roger Craig RB (SF 49ers)*
    Larry Czonka RB (MIA Dolphins)**
    Dan Dierdorff OT (StL Cardinals)**
    Frank Garcia C (StL Rams) 2x AZ State Champ
    Kevin Glover C (DET Lions)*
    La’Roi Glover DE (DAL Cowboys)*
    Orlando Huff MLB (SEA Seahawks)
    Bo Jackson RB (OAK Raiders)*
    Ronnie Lott DB (SF 49ers)**

    Matt Millen LB (OAK Raiders)*
    Lorenzo Neal FB (SD Chargers)

    Are we allowed to post links to YouTube here? I didn't catch all of it, but it seems like the answer is no.

    I'll wait to find out before linking, but until then, go there to see nice feature on Gordon Solie. It's a piece they played at his hall of fame induction this year. He was the best. No one close. The end.

    Well, I was thinking college ball. Kevin Nash played at Tennessee and went on to a successful pro wrestling career.

    The NBA'er was Manute Bol (who also tried his hand on the hockey ice to raise money for his country). Another father son duo was George Weingraub and his two sons "Leaping" Lanny Weingraub and Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

    Cool thread.
