A man follows a dream that millions of people around the world have daily. He works relentlessly to stand on one of the greatest stages in all of sports. He trains and studies for hours on end to perfect his craft.
The hard work pays off. In 1996, he captures gold in the 100-killogram (220-pound) class in freestyle wrestling at the Games of the XXVI Olympiad in Atlanta.
Then he moves on.
Only the fire still burns. Time to pursue another dream. He wants to become a top draw in the biggest professional wrestling organization in the world, the WWE. He debuts in November 1999, and less than a month later, he’s won every singles title there is to be won, including the world heavyweight championship. He headlines Wrestlemania XIX for years.
Then he moves on.
What else? What next? Nowadays, he’s helping to establish Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, or TNA, as a major wrestling company throughout the world. He’s already held every championship there, too. He’s muscling in the film business and the nutrition industry, and the dietary supplement business is now in the crosshairs as well.
Is there anything this guy can’t do?
