Iron Sheik Says Winning WWF Title Was the Biggest Day in His Life
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 10.31.2012



- Iron Sheik recently spoke with Inside The Ropes Radio with Hugo Savinovich about his WWF title reign. Check out the highlights:

On winning the WWF Title from Bob Backlund: "That was the biggest day in my life. Bob Backlund was WWF Champion for six years. Nobody beat him. I was the first Iranian, Middle-Eastern guy to come there and I beat Backlund in the most famous arena in the world, Madison Square Garden in New York City."

On losing the belt to Hulk Hogan: "I had so much heat because of the hostage situation going on. McMahon was worried about me. I was the first Iranian to be the champion, he was afraid about somebody hurting me. So I lost the belt to Hogan. It was again Madison Square Garden. I was part of the company, whatever he wanted me to do, I'd do it. I felt bad about it because I was a real wrestler and would've liked to stay champ, but Hogan had good charisma and he stole the show every night everywhere he went, so they had every right to have me drop the belt to Hogan."
