When I do my cardio first thing in the mornings I usually listen to various podcasts, well this morning while listening to this one...... http://podcastone.com/pg/jsp/program...619&pid=481807 I learned about this documentary on the Iron Sheik.

The Iron Sheik joins JR to talk about Andre The Giant, Bruno Sammartino, Verne Gagne, working the Oklahoma and Portland, Oregon territories, getting clean & sober, and about the new documentary, The Sheik. Doc fimmaker Jian Magen also joins in to give a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Sheik and why he's so impressed with The Rock's contribution specifically. You'll also hear The Iron Sheik's thoughts on CM Punk in MMA, and Brock Lesnar's run in WWE.

Great listen, also touches on Billy Robinson and how they interacted while the Sheik was first training to become a pro-wrestler @41:00 in. Of the Shooters he trained with- Gotch, Gagne, Robinson, and Hodges........The Sheik says Danny Hodges was the Best, Interesting stuff.

Anyway this docu looks great, Anybody seen it?

I bought it the day it was released. It's really well-made. Dude was on a rough path. Didn't look like he was going to last much longer. Really glad he pulled through and fought through his demons. The only upsetting part is knowing that his modern persona is basically a family friend speaking on his behalf. Anything you see on his twitter almost certainly wasn't said by The Sheik.

Just finished the docu up, I thought it was really good. I always got a laugh out of the Sheik, but after watching it I've got tons more respect for him and the journey he's been on.
