[DVD News] You’ll laugh. . .you’ll cry. . .you’ll be astonished at BOSTONWRESTLING.COM’s Iron Sheik Studio Shoot Interview II. The original from 2004 has been often imitated but never duplicated. . .without a doubt, it is the most popular shoot interview in the history of professional wrestling. “I’ll make you humble” became a household phrase on-line, but that’s NOTHING compared to the Sheik’s shocking comments about The Ultimate Warrior and the Warrior’s daughter! This two hour shoot will become another instant classic. You’ll laugh out loud when the Sheik forgets Brian Blair and even his own grand kids names (never mind trying to pronounce Sylvester Stallone’s name!). More vicious attacks on Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart and Nikolai Volkoff. For the first time, the Sheik publicly talks about his two sons he had out of wedlock in Iran, Hassan and Ali.
