Olympic Wrestler Chas Betts Announces He’s Signed With WWE

Posted by Brad Davis November 4, 2013 2 Comments

As reported earlier today, Olympic wrestler Chas Betts has signed with WWE. Betts, who competed on the 2012 United States Olympic team (Greco-Roman wrestling), posted the following message on his Facebook page announcing that today is his first day at the WWE Performance center in Orlando, Florida:

“On Oct. 19th of last year, I asked Kristi to give me one year to attack and pursue a new dream after I retired from Greco-Roman Wrestling…

It ended up taking two weeks longer than I asked for, but I think she’ll forgive that — considering we’ve moved to sunny Orlando, FL just as the Minnesota winter was about to kick in.

I am proud to announce I have signed a contract with WWE and begin training [Monday] at the WWE Performance Center here in Florida. For those that have known me a long time, you know being a pro-wrestler has been a dream of mine since I was 11 or 12 years old. I’m honored and humbled by the opportunity. I am extremely lucky to have a wife and family that has supported me in every dream I’ve chosen to chase, however unlikely it may be. Never underestimate the power of a good support system, people!

For those interested in following the journey, feel free to follow me @chasbetts on Twitter. See ya down the road, friends!”
