Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports has a great article about the Iron Sheik. The article looks at the Sheik's various health problems, as well as his past addictions to alcohol and crack cocaine. The story includes quotes from the Sheik's family, as well as his former tag team partner, Nikolai Volkoff.
"My God, I think at one time, more than 90 percent of the wrestlers were taking one drug or another," Volkoff said. "I was fortunate that I never got mixed up in that. I don't drink, and I don't smoke and I never was fooling around with drugs. I thank God for that. But I know that the Sheik had a lot of problems with it."
