The Iron Sheik

The Iron Sheik is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. The Iron Sheik was both an accomplished amateur wrestler and a world class professional wrestler. The highlight of his career was obviously defeating Bob Backlund for the WWF Heavyweight Title in Madison Square Garden, New York, in 1983. The Sheik also held the WWF Tag Team Title with Nicolia Volkoff, under the management of "Classie" Freddie Blassie.
