Andre The Giant Vs. The Iron Sheik
WWF on MSG Network
[September 7th, 1984]
When The Iron Sheik came to the United States, he made a clear path through anyone who stood in his way by simply outwrestling everyone he faced off against. This came to an abrupt halt, however, when he faced off against the larger than life Andre The Giant. While The Iron Sheik was fearless, he’d have to rethink his usual gameplan if he wanted to take Andre off of his feet. What’s interesting about this match is that originally, Sheik’s manager Freddie Blassie was supposed to serve as the guest referee, but he was replaced instead by Kamala’s manager Friday.
