The Iron Sheik had many battles in the ring, and a lot of fans loved every moment of the ride he took them on. Sadly, news broke that the WWE Hall of Famer passed away.
The Iron Sheik was famous for a lot of things, and Twitter really helped him find a new audience. His Twitter account threw out all-caps tweets at all time, usually heaving profanities along the way.
Interestingly enough, The Iron Sheik’s final tweet was not an angry one. In fact, he was throwing praise on Bret Hart after he saw the Roots of Fight Twitter account give love to The Hitman.
The Iron Sheik was beloved throughout the entire pro wrestling world, and beyond. His passing truly is the end of an era, and fans will probably be scrolling through his Twitter account for years to come to see what he had to say.
We will keep our eyes peeled for more tributes for the Iron Sheik. His passing is just getting out there in the pro wrestling world, so those tributes will likely continue pouring out for the Iron Sheik.
RIP, Iron Sheik, and thank you for all the memories.
