Hulk Hogan Botches The Iron Sheik Tribute

The pro wrestling world mourned the passing away of WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik. He breathed his last at the age of 81. He is survived by his wife and three children. Several wrestling legends took to social media to pay tributes to the legend and including WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, who is considered Sheik’s greatest rival.



The Iron Sheik had a legendary career and his match against Hulk Hogan in January 1984 at Madison Square Garden remains to be one of the greatest chapters in pro wrestling. At the show, Hogan defeated Sheik, which is considered the beginning of “Hulkamania,” the greatest babyface run in wrestling history.

Hulk Hogan has now shared a heartfelt message on his social media account. However he made a mistake by writing Sheikh when it’s actually Sheik.
