Just when I thought I was safe from contributing to another crowd funded project along comes this one! It’s a documentary movie featuring none other than the Iron Sheik. Based on what you can see in the video below, it looks like it will be very in-depth and tell a lot of his story which has never been told before.
I can’t really say I’ve been a huge fan of the Iron Sheik, but I will say that he is a true legend in professional wresting and I respect the hell out of him. The fact that he was a legit amateur wrestling star, a bodyguard for the Shah of Iran and a pro wrestling icon proves that he is a very special person. Seeing some of the pictures in this video of Sheik in his early years was pretty cool. Hearing his peers talk about him with respect is even better. Sheik may be kind of a nut case now, but back in the day he was one tough S.O.B. I really hope this documentary gets made because I can’t wait to see his whole life story. I have a feeling that it is a very interesting one!
