Wrestling Hall of Famer Jim Myers aka George "The Animal" Steele is a Christian. Myers was brought up Baptist, but left the faith early in life. He refound his faith late in life after almost dying from complications of Crohn's Disease.
Myers is dyslexic, but has a Bachelors of Science from Michigan State and Masters Degree from Central Michigan despite his learning disability. He also taught High School and coached (football and wrestling) at Madison High School in Michigan. He is in both Michigan's Coaches and Football Coaches Halls of Fame. Keep in mind he did this while wrestling professionally.
I was always a George Steele fan. Something about the way he could rip apart a turnbuckle with his teeth I guess.
