Founding Fat Boys member Prince Markie Dee has laid out a public challenge to WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik to engage in a charity wrestling match.
The origins of the “feud” stems from what Markie Dee calls “racist comments” that the Iron Sheik made to him on Twitter.
The Iron Sheik is known in the wrestling community as an eccentric character outside of the ring, and he hammered the original Fat Boy with several tweets last week.
“F**k you I am the legend. I am the Hall of Fame,” Iron Sheik stated. “You like Jake Roberts don’t put me over you try to put yourself over. F**k you. You don’t respect the legend you never make the money you need to be f**ked in the ass and be humbled you lowlife. You fat no good fat black motherf**ker. You don’t respect the legend take a f**king walk you son of a b***h. I love the god and Jesus.”
According to Fat Boys manager Louis L. Gregory, MMA fighter Frank Trigg has offered to train Prince Markie Dee for the proposed fight.
Other parties have shown interest as well. Marvel Comics Editor Ryan Penagos stated on Twitter he would offer cash for the bout, Harmonix/MTV has expressed interest in sponsoring, and Hugh Hefner has allegedly offered to host the match at the Playboy Mansion.
In the meantime, Prince Markie Dee is focused on finalizing the details for Fat Boys Fest 2010.
The event will take place on May 14, 2010, with all proceeds going to Prince Markie Dees’ Labor of Love Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Children with Cancer.
