Credit to someone at NBC for tracking down the Iron Sheik and providing his (heavily edited) views on Olympic wrestling.

http://www.nbcolympics.com/news-blogs/blog=olympic-talk/post/iron-sheik-talks-team-usa-wrestling-london-olympics-2012.html

I think my favorite exchange is:

Q: How would Hulk Hogan do against the current Olympic team?

A: Hulk Hogan don’t last long like because [a few expletives] he not a real man like the Sheiky baby. He get beat bad like [wow... not printing that] and never make it to Olympics. Only for the Olympics for being [or that]. [editors note: He definitely hates Hogan.]

So.. is the Iron Sheik just playing a character and trolling us all or is he really that crazy?

Also, I love how things have to be qualified like "[a few expletives]" and "[wow... not printing that]".

Most likely playing a character. But yes, HATES Hogan. And Warrior. And Tito Santana. And my god does he hate Virgil.

I follow him on twitter and he routinely posts short, obsenity-laced insults towards each of the above. Also hits a few other celebs with regularity. And it's awesome. If you don't have a twitter, get one just for the Sheik. He's worth it.

He tweets like he talks which cracks me up more than anything.

Listening to Iron Sheik talk always reminds me of the first South Park episode with Timmy (Timmah). On one hand, I feel bad that he is exploited because of his deteriorated mental capacity. At the same time though, this guy is also somewhat playing a character and making a good post wrestling living being controversial. So am I laughing at him, or laughing with him?

Sheik is also in a feud with Roseanne, who he gives credit for having "more balls than Hogan". She can still get broken old country way in London though.

Last night on a Howard Stern replay they had a episode on with Iron Sheik and it was amazing. He went off on Hogan, Savage (this was pre-death), B Brian Blair, Ultimate Warrior, Bubba the Love Sponge. Sounded similar to Stansbury Alum's review.

I hope someone (maybe an "intelligent jew") finds the time to compile and constantly update a list of things that have been definitively categorized as "the real" or "the gay" by the Iron Sheik.
