Jim Ross Confirms Report Of Iron Sheik’s Arrest On Vegas Flight


As noted earlier today, there is an unconfirmed report that The Iron Sheik was arrested last week after behaving belligerent on a flight and personnel discovering alcohol among his belongings. The story appears legit as Jim Ross made note of a flight incident involving the WWE Hall of Famer on both his official website and Twitter account last week.

J.R. wrote in a blog post last Friday: “Small world….an old friend of mine was on a flight from Vegas to Atlanta this week and was seated on the same row, row 10, with a reportedly rowdy Iron Sheik. My friend, who is not in the wrestling biz, sent me a few text messages describing the scene which apparently was a little wild. It’s hard to believe that when I first met the Iron Sheik that he was quiet, weighed about 195 pounds or so, had hair, and was then a regular traveling partier with Danny Hodge.”

He then wrote on Twitter, “Friend called from Vegas airport boarding flt 2 Atl. It was loud & noisy. Reason: Iron Sheik was boarding! Maybe 2 many jabroni’s” and “My friend called me and Sheik got met by PO-leese @ ATL airport. Ouch, Daddy.”
