#Fact
1Despite his success, he lost money on some bad investments and had to keep wrestling when he was long past his prime.
2Sometimes referred to as the Original Sheik to avoid confusing him with the Iron Sheik (Khosrow Vaziri).
3Led his own stable in FMW called the Sheik Army, which included Sabu, the Gladiator (Mike Awesome [Mike Alfonso]), Damian 666 (Leonardo Carrera), Tiger Jeet Singh and Tiger Jeet Singh Jr. (WWE's Tiger Ali Singh [Gurjit Singh Hans]).
4He was of Lebanese heritage. His family name was anglicized and pronounced just like "far hat.".
5Inducted into the Greater Lansing {Michigan} Area Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
6WWE Hall of Famer.
7Inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2011.
8Notable Title wins include: NWA (Detroit) United States Heavyweight title (12); NWA (Toronto) United States Heavyweight title (3); United National Heavyweight (Japan) title; All Star Wrestling (Montreal) title (2)
9He became the originator and master of the "blackout." During television appearences, The Sheik would do something so vicious or violent that they would cut to a station break or black-out the image. This, of course, would have the desired effect of having fans flock to the local arena to see what couldn't be shown on televison.
10His first known act of chicanery occurred before he became a professional wrestler. He lied about his age in order to serve in World War II.
11When he passed away in January 2003, his son revealed that the grandchildren used to call him "Grandpa Sheik."
12"The Sheik" could not speak or understand English. He would rant and rave in Arabic. In reality, Mr. Farhat could not speak a word of Arabic.
13Though hated by the fans, Mr. Farhat was apparently admired by his fellow wrestlers for his business sense and for the way he engaged a growing audience by enraging it. He became the head of the Big Time Wrestling syndicate, running its television program from Detroit from 1964 to 1980, the year he stopped fighting.
14The Sheik's pioneering sadism clearly established his credentials.
15He pioneered hardcore style wrestling.
16Best known for his vicious, ruthless and brutal wrestling style.
17One of the most notorious heels (villians) in Professional Wrestling history.
18Uncle of Terry Brunk, also known as Sabu.
19He is survived by his wife, Joyce, his sons, Ed George and Thomas, and four grandchildren.
