Exclusive: The Iron Sheik Gets On Twitter In Clip From Documentary 'The Sheik'

Perhaps the name Khosrow Vaziri isn’t immediately familiar to you, but if you’re a person of a certain age, than you remember growing up with The Iron Sheik. One the most fearsome villains in the heyday of the WWF, the wrestler has gained a new life outside the ring thanks to his unique, outrageous social media presence. And the forthcoming documentary “The Sheik” dives right into his digital world.

Directed by Igal Hecht, and featuring Hulk Hogan, Dwayne Johnson, Mick Foley, Seth Green, Jack Black, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Bret Hart, King Kong Bundy, Koko B Ware, Brother Love, Ron Jeremy, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and more, the doc goes all the way back to tell the story of Vazirir’s journey to America, and what’s it like to be a 72-year-old father, husband, and grandfather, who also happens to be a sensation online. And in this exclusive clip, you can get a taste of why he’s gained a massive following.

“The Sheik” hits VOD on December 2nd. Watch below.
