Bronko Nagurski was already an established Back in the National Football League when he got into Professional Wrestling in 1933 and on the gridiron he would take the Chicago Bears to three NFL Championships.  His accomplishments in the squared circle were arguably equal, as he would win multiple titles, among which the coveted National Wrestling Association World Heavyweight Title twice, and was a major draw while doing it.
