By the Iron Sheik, as told to Bleacher Report. Several terms have been changed to make the interview suitable for posting, leaving his voice intact.


My team is the #teamsheikie and Sheikie respect all the people that respect the legend. Very important for the people to respect my team.


These days, I take it easy in my home in the Atlanta, Georgia. Still I work hard, try my best to stay in shape, but my knee bother me big time from all the year of wrestling up and down. The road not easy for the legend.

I also work on my documentary that going to be world class. The movie is called “The Iranian Legend.” I make the documentary, and my fans I hope they support me when it come because I respect them and they respect the legend.

In my good day, I used to wrestle. Now I do show for people who call me for autograph, special event and the comedy. My No. 1 is I sell the picture and my DVD on the www.theironsheik.org.

I respect the Twitter. (Ed. note: Sheikie's account is NSFW.) I watch the world news, I see the TV and I hear about all the BS that the people talking. When I see someone who don’t respect the people, I break their back old-country way on the Twitter. I am the law of the Twitter.

People know when I talk about the problem, I make them humble. I come from oldest country in the world and everybody know when Iron Sheik see the bad person like the OJ Simpson or jabroni Chris Brown or the good man like the Ray Lewis, I respect them or break their back. Chris Brown get the international heat with me.


I love the sports. I love the athlete. I respect the athlete. When I see someone who do the good or the bad, I let the world know because Iron Sheik always talk his mind. I am like the world news No. 1 on the Twitter.

Everybody know I sold out the Madison Square Garden and I most famous American Iranian in the world. Not like that piece of crap, no-good mother the Ultimate Warrior or Tiger Woods’ wife.


I am excited for Super Bowl. 49 of the San Francisco and the Baltimore. 100 million people watch tough sport like the football. I very excited to see what happen.

Also I be happy if I see my good friend the Beyonce. She love the Sheikie Baby. She put on good show for the people for the halftime.

I want to keep it secret who I root for, but I surprise the people and see who win.

The two coach are the brother, and they play for first time to see who win who lose. Going to be interesting for around the world because they never saw two team to have the two brother.

I cannot say who I root for, but the Ray Lewis I respect because he work hard. Like Iron Sheik, he become super star, and he respect the business.

The Colin Kaepernick green like the grass. He not ready for the main event, but we see what happen. I be happy to watch and somebody become legend, somebody become jabroni. Still I respect all the player who play.

Thank you. And God bless you.
