Years active in the WWE: 1998-2006
Angle (like a few other names on this list) was featured in an in-depth report by Sports Illustrated about steroids in pro wrestling. He rekindled his (traditional) wrestling career in a 2008 episode of Pros vs. Joes. He also made a more official (apparent) attempt at a Greco-Roman comeback by trying to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Team but failed due to a knee injury, which led to a Funny or Die skit. Angle failed the medical requirements to be on Ultimate Fighter 10 which would've been a huge opportunity to pursue a career in MMA. He married actress Giovanna Yannotti and if you were looking closely enough you realized he was a prison inmate in Pain & Gain.
