    The following is by the Iron Sheik, as told to Bleacher Report. Several terms have been changed to make the interview suitable for posting.


    I be happy because I come to the New York—my favorite city—this week for the WrestleMania. Every time the legend make it to the WrestleMania, Mr. McMahon know I steal the show.

    Now I go watch next generation show the legend who the real, who the jabroni. Who the next Iron Sheik or Steve Austin, or who the next son of b---- Ultimate Warrior. I tell you who make it who not.

Iron Sheik and Hacksaw Jim Duggan

    First, have you see my new video?

    The intelligent  make it.

    You make me happy, I make you happy. You watch Iron Sheik cartoon, otherwise don't insult the legend.

    Now on to the WrestleMania 29. Sheikie Baby ready, and I choose the winners. 

Tons of Funk vs. Team Rhodes Scholars

2 of 12

    Both team have gimmick. The Brodus Clay have gimmick good for the kids and make the people happy.

     The Dusty Rhodes’ son…I know him since he was little boy. His family in the business. They are smart people and they know how to make the money.

    I choose the Team Dusty son.

Wade Barrett vs. The Miz

3 of 12

    Both young generation, both good worker.

    The Wade Barrett Irish like the whiskey. [Ed. note: Barrett is from England.] I think he be ready to be next star like Junkyard Dog.

    I choose the Wade Barrett.

Chris Jericho vs. Fandango

4 of 12

    The Fandango so far show me he the Fan-dog-s---.

    I don’t know what the ---- he think he doing, but if he get smart with me, I beat the ---- out of him.

    Chris Jericho know Iron Sheik the legend. He know if he get smart with me, I break his back.

    Both of them, I don’t give a ---- what happen. I choose the double disqualify.

Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H

5 of 12

    Triple H the new Vince Kennedy McMahon. He smart to know who good for business.

    He work with the Brock Lesnar. I respect the Brock. He Iron Sheik-class and he respect the legend gold medal. Still in my day, I beat the ---- out of him, make him humble, no problem. The Brock ready for world news again, and he win because he the real.

    I choose the Brock.

Team Hell No vs. Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston

6 of 12

    The Dolph Ziggler ready. He remind me of the Mr. Perfect.

    Still I break his back, but still I respect him.

    I choose the Dolph Ziggler.

Ryback vs. Mark Henry

7 of 12

    Mark Henry my black brother. I love him and his family. He always respect the legend when he see me. He know I real Olympic champion like the Mark Henry.

    The Ryback new generation. He look believable, and he impress me with his body.

    Mark Henry don’t need to win because he Iron Sheik-class. They give to the Ryback. I choose the Ryback.

Sheamus, Randy Orton and Big Show vs. the Shield

8 of 12

    The Shield NOT THE SHEIK. They are the new, and so far they OK. The gimmick not believable for the legend, but still they work hard and they try to be next generation.

     Still they not ready for the Sheamus, Bob Orton son and the Big Show. The Bob Orton son been in wrestling business since he was baby. He most believable and he love the business.

    Big Show, I love him like he my son. He Iron Sheik-class and he know the moderation A to the Z, and he the real, not like the midget Andre the Giant. Big Show real giant.

    The Sheamus from Ireland. He like the Roddy Piper from Scotland. He impress me, but he look like orange drink. Still I respect them.

    I choose the Bob Orton son and Big Show team.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger

9 of 12

    Alberto my real Mexican brother, not like the piece of garbage Tito Santana. Alberto real Latino, not like the biggest jabroni in the sport, the Alex Rodriguez. If I see the Alex Rodriguez in the New York City, I break his back, put him in the Camel Clutch, make him humble.

     Jack Swagger ready with my good friend, the Dutch. They have strong gimmick, and talk like they are the real.

    The Jack ready, bubba, but still I love the Del Rio. I choose the Jack Swagger.

Undertaker vs. CM Punk

10 of 12

    I love the CM Punk. I respect the CM Punk. He love the business and he work hard to be the #1. He smart. He don’t care he win or lose so as long he have his spot on the WrestleMania. He real professional in the business.

     The Undertaker, he best. He the real and god bless the Paul Bearer, my friend forever. He win always in the WrestleMania and he make show best.

    I choose Undertaker.

The Rock vs. John Cena

11 of 12

    Rock best performer in wrestling business history. He Iron Sheik-class. He make the money, he have the look, he love the business. I love his family. I live with them in the Carolina and I always respect them.

     John Cena new generation. All the fan love him, hate him, same thing. Both good for business.

    Iron Sheik know Rock make wrestling more money. Rock make everyone more money.

    John Cena lose last year, but this year they give him back. No matter what, they both good for the business.

    I choose the John Cena.
