The Brian Blair thing was hilarious because it came completely out of nowhere.
The Michael Richards thing was hilarious because he also respects Newman.
But this video reveals a completely lucid Sheik who has figured out that if he calls people punks, faggots, motherfuckers, and no good low-life sons of bitches, it will make him popular on the internet and he'll get more bookings for shoot interviews, autograph signings, and indy dates. Boring.
Mildly amsuing...I guess. This routine got kind of old after the Kramer one (which in fairness was awesome for the aformentioned "...and also Newman" and the polite applause at the end). At this point he knows its what people expect of him so I don't find his hatred to be as genuine as it could be. It kind of loses the luster of a true insane tirade.
Still, the Sheik owes me a thank you...or at least a volley of screaming insults since I was the one that picked that segment out of that interview and uploaded it to Youtube, starting this whole mess. Well, uh, me and the guy who interviewed him.
That's from No Mercy 2003. They showed it on Heat as an "earlier today" thing. The final frames of the video claim that it's Kenny Dykstra. Maybe somebody has this on DVD (One of those Walgreen's specials, perhaps.) & can tell better.
