The Sheik Hits the Fan Over Hulk Hogan

11/13/2008 5:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Like a deranged lunatic -- a homophobic deranged lunatic -- '80s wrestling legend Iron Sheik stormed into LAX yesterday screaming all sorts of offensive obscenities in a delusional attempt to score a rematch with Hulk Hogan.

After the tirade, the threats and the spitting -- the 65-year-old got rolled up right in the airport ... in his wheelchair.

This guy is a piece of garbage. To talk like that in public is a disgrace. This clowns agent makes this poor old man make an absolute joke out of himself. The Shiek was an absolute monster in the early days of his career. He is a former olympian and yes did manage to headline wrestling shows at MSG as a top notch performer in the 80s. If Hogan was there at LAX the Shiek would have been nothing but smiles and hugs. If it wasn't for the drawing power of Hogan, the Sheik wouldn't have made a dime. So, all of you laughing at this poor old man being exploited should seriously examine the situation.

What I'm curious about knowing is who was responsible for naming a Mexican guy "Sheik". That' guy isn't of middle eastern decent, he's mexican.

Campy....the Sheik is Iranian. He seriously used to be the bodyguard for the Shah of Iran. He was a legitimate bad ass. Google him. Also, youtube Iron Sheik on youtube as there are lots more rants like this.

He wasn't always like this, several years ago his daughter was shot and after she died he lost it.

Not saying he wasn't troubled before that, but it became far worse after that.
