WWE Network Update: Hall of Famer Announced for WWE Legends House

Wrestling legend and Internet sensation The Iron Sheik will be featured in a new promo for planned reality show WWE Legends House, Wrestling News Source is reporting.

The programme, which will be apart of the prospective WWE network, is one of several potential reality shows that will be blended with wrestling reruns and other shows.

Iron Sheik, real name Hossein Khosrow Ali Vaziri, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 and is most widely known in wrestling for ending the WWF Championship reign of Bob Backlund in 1983, before dropping it to Hulk Hogan, a moment which is considered the start of "Hulkamania."

As an Iranian born wrestler, Sheik is one of the most famous wrestling examples of the foreign heel, something Vince McMahon took advantage of by contrasting him with the patriotic Hogan.

In recent years, Sheik has enhanced his reputation via the Internet, on which he is something of a celebrity for his wildly outlandish Youtube videos.
