Legendary Pro Wrestling Villain The Iron Sheik Weighs In On Chris Hemsworth Playing Hulk Hogan

Many children who grew up in the totally rad decade of the 1980s enjoyed them some good old wrasslin’. What some might call the glory days of sports entertainment seen the dawn of Wrestlemania and had what is perhaps the most memorable cast of characters including Hulk Hogan, Macho Man, Junkyard Dog, Honky Tonk Man, and of course, the guy everyone loved to hate, The Iron Sheik.

With the recent announcement that actor Chris Hemsworth is set to portray pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan in an upcoming film, The Iron Sheik had a message for Hemsworth which he posted on his Twitter account. You can check it out below.

Word is the Sheik is fairly active on social media though I have to say, not quite sure what the Sheik is trying to do here. Does he not want Hemsworth to portray Hulk Hogan, or does he not want anyone to portray Hogan? While I may be biased being a Hemsworth fan, I think he was a great casting choice for the film, just make sure he can do the ear thing correctly, and we’re all good.
