10 Things You Didn't Know About Wendi Richter

4. Rejected The Advances Of The Iron Sheik


Be warned that the entire account is from an Iron Sheik shoot interview with Bostonwrestling.com. It does push some boundaries.

Beginning at 1:28 in the video above, the always wild Iron Sheik makes claims that Wendi Richter once was asked but did not want to engage in sexual relations with him.

According to Sheik, he propositioned Richter and his advances were shot down. He was so taken aback that any woman would not want to have sex with him so he assumed that she might not like men at all. He told her that she must be a lesbian. She is not.

"She said 'No Sheik, don't talk to me like that. I'm not lesbian.' Well, I said if you're not lesbian, why you don't want to have sex with me?"

Sheik then assumed that she must be like the celebrity lesbians that he is aware of and then told her that she must be like Rosie O'Donnell, Ellen DeGeneres, and Michael Jackson.

It's no wonder that this WWE Hall of Famer and former WWF Champion doesn't pop up too much on today's current PG product.
