Check out an exclusive clip of the new documentary The Sheik
The Iron Sheik was one of the key figures in the World Wrestling Federation's early years and played a crucial role in the rise of the company's greatest star, Hulk Hogan.
The new documentary The Sheik, available through VOD and other digital retailers starting Tuesday, December 2, takes a look at the career of the man born Khosrow Vaziri, and at his match with Hulk Hogan in particular.
In an SI exclusive clip, Sheik talks about an offer he had from a competing wrestling outfit to double cross the WWF and break Hogan's leg during the match for $100,000, an offer he ultimately turned down.
