The Great Blog got the most page impressions in one day than ever, due to Sheik's appearance on the Howard Stern Show. I'm trying to keep up to date with all the new happenings in the Youtube World of Sheik, which is pretty hard to do when the guy is literally everywhere.
But I still want to make this blog about appreciating the old stuff and new stuff. There's still a lot of incidents that we haven't even covered yet, which I'm planning to get to next week. Hopefully, someone will either leak Sheik's appearance on Howard on Youtube, but, for now, go to MarksFriggin.com (click on the link to see the rundown of Thursday's show). From what I've read, it sounded like he had a good appearance. The guy went off on people and, also, played a friendly game of Anal Ring Toss. Glad he won $2,500, but let's hope he doesn't spend it all on medicine.
In the meantime, I'm really interested in the promotion that Sheik is doing right now. He's teamed up with his "nephews", the Magen brothers, and is going to release a documentary with them. Go to www.sheikshow.com and check out the footage there. It doesn't leave anything to the imagination. And update your Myspace friend listings, the new official Sheik myspace is /therealironsheik.
Sheik's appearance on the Monday Night Mayhem show, which I listened to a couple days ago. He seems pretty sober here. He seems excited to be on the Stern show. Although Hogan broke his heart and apparently kayfabed him by having Jimmy Hart take his phone number, he's got a lot of respect for him. Sheik's feelings on his contemporaries is usually pretty consistent, unless it's either Hogan or Blair. I guess he's looking forward to Anal Ring Toss or whatever. He says ESS Promotions correctly, which is tremendous.
He's still lying to us about getting a gold medal in Mexico City, but let's just nod our heads. At least he's got an AAU gold medal! This interview is tremendous. Just remember, he's the rheal. Even though he's a loyal company man, he does occasionally watch TNA.
Sheik does talk about Chris Benoit and he actually comes off better than Steve Blackman and Warrior, since he doesn't talk about defending the business so that is great. He's just upset about Daniel and Nancy Benoit dying. Even if he says "I know the man is innocent", but later on, he says that Benoit broke his heart, so I think accepting the truth is really hard for him. It's really a fucking shame what happened.
Alright, I'm done. Take care and have a great weekend, jackasses. New post probably on Monday, maybe later.
