    Its a long (blog, article, dunno) so the link is up top and I'll just post the opening paragraph

    On August 29, 2009, a man of over 250 pounds with a thick, black mustache registered a Twitter handle. "#fact" his first tweet began. "Iron sheik is making twitter humble -- stay tuned." A retired wrestler, one known for sporadic outbursts about his competition, re-launched himself as a bizarre and irreverent pop-culture voice. Today he has over 93,000 followers, a verified account and a voice that can be described in many different ways -- abrasive, hilarious, aggressive, off-the-wall. As I interviewed him, his bristling tone and thoughts went in rapidly-changing directions, with more in the way of energy than true meaning. In 2012, Hossein Khosrow Vaziri cannot be wrestled from his most famous persona.

    His most common threat is to "humble" those that he doesn't like -- a list that he considers never-ending. "I humble anyone who don't respect legend. I sell out the Madison square garden gold metal. F- the piece of garbage grasshopper d- Ultimate Warrior, the Hulk Hogan and the idiot no-good the Virgil ."

    The Sheik then went on to describe various female movie stars he also wished to "humble" -- a man of great energy at 69 years old.

    Just look at the Shikey clip! Howard was still working then, even standing up!

    To bad that Sheik have been "banned" from the show after his last appearance. He was to normal. :(

    The sad thing is that Sheiky is more shoot then work. He is bit crazy. He lost his mind after that his daughter was murdered.
