Iron Sheik

THREATENS OLYMPIC OFFICIALS

'I Swear to the Jesus I Suplex Them'

2/12/2013 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212_iron_sheik_wweThe Iron Sheik isn't just a WWE legend ... he's also a veteran Olympic wrestler ... and he's so pissed that his sport is getting booted from the Games ... he's now threatening violence.

As we previously reported, the International Olympic Committee has moved to drop wrestling from the 2020 games ... in favor of other sports like field hockey. Seriously.

Now, Sheik -- who says he competed for Iran in the 1968 Olympics and then became an asst. coach for Team USA in the '70s -- tells TMZ (in his trademark broken English) he's looking to take matters into his own hands.

"After 1000 years they take away the best sport in the world? This is the first time the dumb motherf**kers have no balls for they make the walking an Olympic sport."

He adds, "If I see anybody on the street that work from the IOC I swear to the Jesus I suplex them put them in camel clutch break their back make them humble."

"The #TEAMSHEIKIE respect the Olympic now they can all go f**k themselves and make the Curling Olympic sport because they all the biggest piece of no good s**t and I never watch the Olympic again. Also buy my t shirt [on my website] or go f**k yourself.”

It's a little confusing ... but we think we get the point.

Has this picture been photoshopped? It looks like his face is on someone else's body--just a strange picture. As for the suplex thing--not sure what that means, but it doesn't sound too good.

This is such a typical response from an Arab. All they know is violence. How many children will he kill in the name of wrestling?

I agree that taking away one of the original, Ancient Greek, sports from thousands of years ago is idiotic.

hahaha... omg... this is great. i mean, when you think about it, it is kind of ridiculous that WALKING can be a sport- and they're taking out something that involves a skill! no offense to people who are, you know, good walkers and all that... i respect walkers... but, let's face it, it's a dumbass sport to be in the olympics taking up space.
