    Backlund was an NCAA wrestling champ while Sheik was an Iranian Olympic wrestler.  I'd pick Backlund in a shoot match.

  • In their Primes? While Bob Backlund was a Top College Wrestler, The Iron Sheik was a Top Greco-Roman Wrestler, represented Iran at The 1968 Summer Olympics and at the time was The Youngest Iranian Athlete to Medal at The Summer Olympics. Considering that The Iron Sheik was a Trainer for The Legendary Verne Gagne, I would put my money on The Iron Sheik in his Prime to beat Bob Backlund in his Prime in a Real Wrestling Match.
