Yes, Mike Adamle made this list!

Adamle played for the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets and Chicago Bears, scoring four rushing touchdowns in his career in the 1970s. Before the NFL, Adamle played for Northwestern University, where he was a team captain, an All-American fullback, and the Big Ten MVP in 1970. Adamle’s 316 rushing yards in a game against the Wisconsin Badgers in 1969 still stands as a school record for the most rushing yards in a game.

His WWE career wasn’t as stellar, but he was entertaining.
