The Iron Sheik : Former WWF Champ, Recent Stern Fixture…

….and future spokesmodel for Sully’s Tees? Is there any greater testament — Hank Steinbrenner’s claims aside — to the global appeal of Larry Lucchino Nation than the manner in which this Iranian patriot has embraced the Red Sox?

It’s also nice to see the Iron Sheik has expanded on his usual repertoire of rambling homophobia and is now accepting party bookings from the MWF. Be it for an office Christmas bash or perhaps your daughter’s Bar Mitzvah, there are few entertainment options more enticing than watching the Sheik cut a promo on B. Brian Blair.

  1. When I was a kid I was scared of him because he used to beat up Hulk. Now I’m scared of him because we live in the same town and he’s… like that.

    He’s as real as pro wrestling gets. By ‘real,’ I mean he’s actually Iranian (who the fuck knew???) and his mustache is not of the novelty variety. Alas, he is not really a Sheik but he was the bodyguard for the Shah of Iran. Again, who the fuck knew?

    Has he weighed in on a possible Manny return to Fenway yet?
