What? Did you think I was lying?

And don’t think that the tweet doesn’t make it even better.

He ain’t wrong. Except… well… I’m maybe not so sure that an extra inning win counts as beating the fuck out of someone, but whatever. Amazing.

 

Crotch grab in the direction of Wilner for the tip. Because for some reason I apparently do not follow the Sheik.

  1. Awesome!

    Pitooey!

  2. That is incredible.

  3. I’m jealous of the kids going to the Jays summer camp.

    Alomar, White, Ward, Moseby and George Fucking Bell will be there!

  4. Well Jose did laugh at their pathetic shift to get the runner to third.

  5. That’s a little bit awesome

  6. A WINNER IS ALL OF US

    (see if anyone gets this)

  7. Eeeeeran! Nombarr wun! Russshaa! Nombarr wun! USA! Caanadah! Bleh!! Hah!!!

    Good ole’ Iron Sheik when wrestling was wrestling! If any of you remember the camel clutch, you know it actually hurts! Figure four ain’t no bed of roses either lol. Little boys will do dumb things in the name of their mat heroes! I’ve delivered a few suplexes and taken some as well.

    Shirt looks good on him. Now he needs one to represent the best outfield in baseball at one time in the team history and the arguably the sports history in their primes. BMB – Bell Moseby Barfield.

  8. eh. this guy is just using whatever angle he can to self promote.
    fuck him and his homophobic wrestling persona.

  9. Oh he’s an interesting follow.

  10. The Sheik’s tweets are amazing!! John Oliver, formally from the Daily Show, hosts a weekly pod-cast (The Bugle) and publicized the awesomeness of the Sheik and his ability to spin 140 character magic, while still sounding like the car salesman from ‘Crazy Vaclav Place of Automobiles’ – “put it in H”.

  11. After the Warrior’s passing (sorry for being a Debbie Downer), the old wrestlers like Sheik are ever more relics of rose tinted nostalgia. Everything seemed to be so simple, these crude caricatures playing the part of cartoon heroes pulling off miracle comebacks and amazing feats that captured imagination of people like me. Of course the person behind that persona had failings and weaknesses, all the scars of substance abuse and controversy but I appreciate him for what he was and that he enjoys life outside the ring.

    • You read the Masked Man’s stuff (Dead Wrestler of the Week guy — think he goes by his real name now) that used to be at Deadspin and is now at Grantland? You should. I’m not even a rasslin’ fan, but there’s a lot of the same kind of wistfulness, they’re well-written, and he sure seems to know his shit.

      • agreed, I haven’t watched wrestling since I was 13, but the dead wrestler of the week is a must read

  12. My favorite wrestler growing up was Brutus the Barber Beefcake

    how come it was so cool back then, and seemingly so incredibly lame now?

  13. Before the days of the conglomerate WWF, we used to have the smaller regional companies tour through town and seeing them on TV.
    I remember seeing Gene Kiniski, Baron von Raschke, Eduard Carpentier, Gino Brito – and can still remember the ring announcer intoning “From Lac St. Jean, Quebec – here is Gilles “The Fish” Poisson.!!”.

  14. I can’t wait to follow the Sheik on twitter!

    This is amazing stuff. I didn’t believe the headline, Stoeten.

    Btw, the most devastating 80′s wrestling move was the Perfect Plex, duh. Those promos were fucking out of this world. And those blond curly locks, well they were damn near perfect.

  15. The sheik is never wrong.

  16. Just checked out his Twitter…it’s pretty damn funny.
