Iron Sheik goes nuts
This was uploaded by the infamous KaneRobot over a year ago and somehow became one of the most popular clips on Youtube during the time that it's been up. Can you believe there's been over 250,000 views of this clip? Me neither. I doubt Sheiky really understands how big the phenomenon is, but I have always entertained the possibility that he is secretly an entrepreneur who decided to mock-exploit himself in order to take over the internets and build his legend up to the likes of what he's believes are his contemporaries: Gholamreza Takhti, Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan. Well, maybe not Takhti, but hey, if the man can become revered all due to shitting all over the lesser-known Killer Bee, then why not?
SHEIKY VALUE: This is still the pinnacle of all Iron Sheik rants. Don't let anyone else fool you! Sheik makes sure to tell us that he wrestled in front of 93,000 people in the Pontiac Silverdome. And that he respects Jim Brunzell, but not Brian Blair. But the threat of anal rape is likely what makes us all laugh, chuckle, giggle or shake our heads in disbelief, but it captured the attention of thousands of people. This is all so very brilliant. When your children grow up, play this for them and learn about the legend.
