Blood and Fire: The Unbelievable Real-Life Story of Wrestling’s Original Sheik by Brian R. Solomon

Paperback $21.18 from Amazon

The captivating tale of how The Sheik seized people's imaginations, took over the wrestling world, and eventually lost it all in a spectacular blaze of flame and glory. He was the most feared, bloodthirsty, and hated bad guy in wrestling.

Throughout the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, he brought in incredible attendance figures wherever he went and left destruction and violence in his wake. He was The Sheik: the ominous and frightening maniac from Syria, whose wild destruction and chaos are wrestling lore.

Little did his millions of devoted fans know that The Sheik was actually Eddie Farhat, from Lansing, Michigan, an Arab American veteran of World War II. When not yelling incomprehensibly or using weapons, he was running World Wide Sports, one of the most successful wrestling organizations in North America.

Brian Solomon did an incredible job telling Sheik's story and if that's not enough, Rob Van Dam did the foreword for the book!
