"R.I.P. The Iron Sheik"
Wed Jun-07-23 12:53 PM by Numba_33

  

          

Just saw news of this on Instagram.

I have to admit I was a bit too young to see him wrestle, but I got hip to him because of his oddball twitter account. It was pretty cool to see an older dude such as himself stay in touch with younger generations on his unique terms.

R.I.P, the old country way.

loved rooting against him.

and love how Rock is giving these older wrestlers some shine on Young Rock with his flashbacks to being a kid in Hawaii when his pops was wrestling.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

He foisted all those dumb repackaged gimmicks so many of his '80s superstars.

I mean, FOH with that Col. Mustafa shit, but Vince was hankering for another "EVIL FOREGIN INVADERS!!!" angle.
