“The Olympic Gold Medalist” -- Gazette.Net


In 1996, Kurt Angle took home the gold medal for freestyle wrestling at the Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Since then, Angle has parlayed that into a successful professional wrestling career.

The former WWE champion, who is currently with TNA Wrestling, will be making an appearance as part of Legends of Wrestling Night at Prince George’s Stadium in Bowie on Wednesday. The Baysox will be playing the Reading Fightin’ Phils at 6:35 p.m. that day.

Angle, who is fresh off an appearance in the summer cult sensation “Sharknado 2,” will be throwing out the first pitch and signing autographs for fans during the game.

Over the past few seasons, various wrestling superstars have made their way to a Bowie Baysox game — Kevin Nash, Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Jerry “The King” Lawler, just to name a few.
