Tyson has one of the most dramatic stories on this list because he rose from the depths of Hell several times in his life. The former heavyweight champion had a rough childhood and endured bullying. However, he became a relentless machine after someone tore the head off his favorite pigeon.
Later, he endured Don King’s manipulation but the worst was yet to come. He went to prison after a rape conviction that still polarizes the masses today. Some people think he’s inhuman but others believe it was a setup. Nonetheless, Tyson bounced back in astonishing style and remains a massive star today (via The Ring).
