Nikolai Volkoff and the Iron Sheik were the greatest wrestling tag-team of all-time, if not the most hated. As the evil Russian, and the wrestling generation’s face of the cold war, Volkoff drew a lot of heat.
Now Volkoff is looking to become an even more despicable character – as a politician.
Volkoff is preparing for a run for the Maryland House of Delegates in September. Do you think he will ask for the playing of the Soviet national anthem before each session? Maybe the Iron Sheik can join him in office and the duo can be the heels of the Maryland legislature. You can see the Sheik saying, “West Virginia, #1! The District #1! Maryland, patoo!”
Maryland is so lucky.
Talk to The Iron Sheik, a regular contributor to The Hater Nation Forums. (Don't tell that sports editor for the local Orange County paper that it's a parody. He thinks its real.)
