An embarrassed Iron Sheik admitted yesterday that his many hateful diatribes over the years should have been directed at Jumpin’ Jim Brunzell, not B. Brian Blair.
“I make mistake,” confessed Sheik. “Sorry.”
Sheik’s apology came after a barrage of explosive outbursts in which Sheik threatened to break Blair’s back and “make him humble,” among other vulgar threats we cannot print here.
Sheik said he knew he hated one of the Killer Bees, but “thought it was the moustache one.”
“They put on masks, I get confused!” admitted the Iranian, clutching a replica title belt that looks remarkably unlike the one he lost to Hulk Hogan in 1984. “Now I see – Blair has moustache, Brunzell no moustache.”
Though he failed to explain the roots of his hatred, the Iron Sheik insisted he would break Jim Brunzell’s back and make him humble.
“B. Brian Blair number one,” Sheik said. “Jim Brunzell, acchh-tooie!”
