Bronko Nagurski's dominance on the football field helped the Bears win two championships. During his football career he played as a lineman and fullback. That skill set is unique for today's NFL, much less the league nearly a century ago. Nagurski started to participate in professional wrestling during his football career and reached his peak when he won the National Wrestling Association world title in 1939. When we make our badass athletes of all time list Nagurski' will no doubt be guaranteed a spot.
