TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… MAY 26TH: Turnbuckles and Turnpikes (1987)



Duggan would sign with WCW in 1994  and still makes special appearances today.

The Iron Sheik  and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan were arrested on drug possession charges after Duggan is pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence on the New Jersey Turnpike.


Duggan was charged with possession of marijuana and drinking alcohol while driving. Sheik (aka Khosrow Vaziri) was charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana.

Jim Duggan received a conditional discharge, while The Iron Sheik got one year’s probation.

Ironically, the two men were feuding in WWF storylines at the time
