Former wrestler files for bankruptcy



Rulon Gardner has led a life of triumphs and traumas, from winning Olympic wrestling gold to surviving a plane crash, getting tossed from a motorcycle and getting lost on a snowmobile (which cost him a frostbitten toe). Now, he’s filed for bankruptcy.

Gardner, 41, who grew up on a dairy farm in Wyoming, filed for bankruptcy on Aug. 31 in federal court in Salt Lake City. He requested Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as straight liquidation, under which assets (except for some exempt) are sold to pay off creditors.

According to documents filed by Gardner on Sept. 10, creditors hold about $2.934 million in unsecured claims against him, $2.8 million of that is owed to the West Coast Lending Group of Salt Lake City.

    He was the one who ended Alexander Karelin 13 year unbeaten streak at the 2000 olympics. I didn’t know he had ties to Pro Wrestling though. Apparantly hosted a small time promotion.

    He worked on Real Pro Wrestling for two years, which was an attempt at taking amateur wrestling and turning it into a professional league.
