Christopher Nowinski is the only Harvard University graduate in World Wrestling Entertainment. A three-year letterman
and two-year starter as a defensive tackle for the Crimson, he enrolled at a Killer Kowalski’s training school soon
after graduating in 2000.
Not too long afterward, a fellow Harvard alum informed Nowinski that WWE was starting a new reality show called "Tough
Enough." Nowinski made a videotape, sent it in and was selected for to participate in the show’s inaugural season. Although
he did not win the competition, he impressed WWE officials and continued training toward his goal of becoming a WWE Superstar.
In 2002, his hard work paid off as he made it to the big leagues. He immediately established himself as a WWE Superstar by
winning the Hardcore Championship.
The numerous collisions he suffered through the years while playing football eventually caught up to him in the wrestling
ring, and after suffering a severe concussion, he has no longer been able to compete. These days, Nowinski can be found using
his smarts as an active member of WWE’s SmackDown Your Vote! campaign. He promotes this non-partisan partnership that
encourages young people to get involved in the political process and to actively vote. In addition, Nowinski also promotes
active reading after school hours and reading during the summer.
The jury is still out whether this gridiron great and promising grappler will return to the ring. If he does, there’s
little question that he will be a force. If he doesn’t, you can be sure that he’ll remain a vital part of the
WWE family. (excerpt from WWE.com)
My Prediction: He will never wrestle again.
