* OddFriendship: With Prime Time Amy Lee, whom he served as a manager to, going so far as to pop up behind her in Women's Extreme Wrestling, an all female {{garbage wrestling}} promotion. This also made it easy for him to show up in Wrestling/{{WSU}}, another all woman not ''quite'' garbage wrestling promotion when she was its commissioner.

** While working for the National Wrestling League he described Wrestling/{{Kamala}} as "Not Jabroni" and formed a tag team with him. They didn't seem to have much in the way of conversations but it seemed like friendship.

* LegacyCharacter: Crossed with OneSteveLimit. While Shawn Daivari was in WWE's developmental program, he was renamed "Khosrow", although the first name never made it to WWE TV, as both a tribute to the Iron Sheik and to avoid the possibility that anyone might somehow confuse Daivari with Wrestling/ShawnMichaels.

* IsThisThingStillOn: Wrestling/JimCornette tells a story from back in the territory days, he and the Sheik were working for a promotion which had a commissioner who was not "smart" (aware of {{kayfabe}}), and therefore imposed a number of limitations on the show, for instance, anyone who was not a licensed announcer was not allowed on the mic. Cornette was working as the announcer, and the Sheik tried to take the mic off him. As they struggled over the mic, Cornette warned him about the commissioner, and, just as Cornette lost his grip, Sheik screamed "OH, FACK DEH KOMEESHUNUR!" at the top of his lungs into the mic.
