From the Junior National Freestyle Championship to the 1996 summer Olympics, Kurt Angle's achievements are second to none in the world of professional wrestling. This is the inspiring autobiography of this former Olympic gold medalist and current World Wresting Federation Heavyweight Champion.
Kurt Angle generally utters the phrase "It's true! It's true!" whenever he denigrates a World Wrestling Federation rival, or when he portrays himself as a bonafide American hero. Although Angle's goal is to rile up fans, there is certainly validity to his boast. After winning Olympic gold in overtime, Angle became the first Olympic medalist to sign with the World Wrestling Federation.
In his first year, he skyrocketed faster than any rookie in Federation history, quickly becoming the third man in a humorous love triangle, including Stephanie MacMahon and her on-screen "husband", the infamous Triple H. On October 22, 2000, he defeated The Rock to become the World Wrestling Federation's Heavyweight Champion. He is walking, talking, wrestling proof that hard work and determination can overcome all obstacles, and this is his full story.
