279. Angelo Mosca
A legend on the Canadian Gridiron and a star in the National Wrestling Alliance, Angelo Mosca may be best known now for a viral YouTube video where he fought on stage with another former CFL star.

Mosca is better than that memory of the two senior citizens duking it out in public. After dominating the CFL (he is a Hall of Famer there), Mosca would wrestle full time. The transition was easy, as like many other football players he was already wrestling in the off-season. Mosca looked mean and was able to draw crowds in the States despite being a football star North of the Border.

With a solid resume of regional belts to his credit, stranger entries than Angela Mosca have entered the WWE Hall of Fame. Just don’t let Joe Kapp induct him.
