He made it to 81... Which is twice the life expectancy of a wrestler

One of my dad's best friends is a Kurd from Iran. In the late seventies through the eighties, my family used to go to a lot of Iranian picnics and social gatherings. Most of the people at the events were Kurdish, but there were a fair number of Persians from Iran too. Hossein went to several of the events. I wasn't a fan of wrestling, but my next youngest brother was huge wrestling fan. I remember Hossein would hold his arms in a muscle man pose and let the kids hang off him, including my brother.

Just watched the WWE legends documentary on him the other day. He was the king of all heels. The timing of his entrance into big time wrestling during the US/Iran hostage thing. Think it was Undertaker who said if you’ve never been stabbed, you’re not a hard core heel. Think he was stabbed twice and piles of death threats of course.
Heck of a wrestler!

Careful, at our age, roids might mean something completely different than your intention.

81 is one heck of a run ,,, especially for a wrestler.. they seldom see their 65th birthday. Iron sheik was actually a very skilled athlete… and was actually pretty dang strong. I had read somewhere that he was actually very good freinds with the Shaw of Iran before it all went upside down.

He was a body guard for the sheik of Iran, Kosroe Vaziri was trained by Vern Gagne here in Minnesota in the early seventies!

Yep. Until his wrestling trainer died suddenly of “natural causes” after he spoke out against the regime. Then he knew it was time to get out while he still could. Lived the American dream actually. Stuffed his nose full of coke for a bit, cleaned up and looked in good shape in the documentary.

Tom Zenk also said that Randy Savage was really tough and knew how to fight!
