• Controversial WWE Wrestler Muhammad Hassan Becomes Principal Of A Junior High School
According to Oswego County Today, controversial former WWE wrestler Muhammad Hassan (Marc Copani) has become the Principal of Fulton Junior High School.
Marc has been involved with Fulton City School Department since 2015 and had the following to say regarding what he wants to do as the Principal:
“From my vantage point, I’ve been able to see what many of our young men and women are lacking as they enter ninth grade.
I’m eager to get started with my faculty and staff so we can work together to prepare junior high students for the transition to the high school, which ultimately will help prepare students for life after school.
It’s going to be a lot of work, but I can’t wait to be able to work with my staff to motivate students to be the best version of themselves.
I would like to create an environment that not only focuses on learning at high levels, but also on developing the social skills that allow young men and women to be successful in the future.”
Before getting released from the WWE, Hassan was scheduled to get a mega push as he was set to defeat Batista to become the youngest World Heavyweight Champion (breaking Randy Orton’s record).
