If The Iron Sheik was a rookie today, what kind of character would he play?
Would WWE push him as an over-the-top, foreign heel, like they did in the 1980s? He certainly had the charisma for it, and tensions between Iran and America are almost as bad today.
Or would the focus be on the Sheik's background as a legit wrestler? It could be both, I guess, but I feel like he'd work a different style, depending.
