Attn Iranian Fans: How powerful is Jadidi in your country?

Postby DF » Fri Feb 18, 2011 10:07 pm

Dear fans from Iran,

I have noticed a lot of pictures of Jadidi are him wearing designer suits surrounded by government officials. How powerful is Jadidi in your country? Is he a politician of some sort? Thank you in advance from your humble fans in America.

I like the choice of Scott Norwood almost as much as the revered Don.

We should ask Iranews over on TheWrestlingTalk forums, he posts there quite a bit.

I am somewhat puzzled by the question and why you would ask it but here is what I know about jadidi:

Unlike most wrestlers in IRAN which come from poor financial backgrounds, jadidi came from an upper middle class family and his family owned several Auto dealerships before he was even a wrestler.

He does not support the current government nor does he have any influences. I am not sure which photos you are referring to but in IRAN if you are being escorted or surrounded by some type of officials, you are in some sort of trouble.

there are other former wrestlers that are presently or formerly members of congress but jadidi is not one of them.

DF - I met Hamid Kermanshah who was an Iranian World Champ and former Iranian team coach, but I forgot to ask him about Jadidi. He may have left Iran before Jadidi's time, but if I see him again this week I will ask him for you. I will also get his opinion on '96.

There are several threads on this board casting jadidi in a negative light!!!

I have met him personally and have spoken to him. He had a Q and A with iranian fans at the 1995 world championship at the omni in Atlanta right after the competition. he was very humble and gracious and friendly.

why is there such a negative fascination with Jadidi so many years later????

shamrock, these threads about Jadidi are not meant to be disrespectful. It's just that we probably have a different sense of humor than in your country. Jadidi is probably the most famous non-American wrestler on this forum!

Jadidi is equally famous here and there.

In Iran it is common that officials set meetings with champions to show that they are humble and try to stick to champions to say that such victories are because of their politics and supports.
Jadidi is a member of Iran wrestling federation as a supervisor and owns a restaurant and sports complex too.
And there are many more popular wrestlers from past to now, such as Takhti , Movahed, Rasoul Khadem , Alireza Heidari,....

Jadidi is recognized as a a great wrestler on this forum.

I saw him wrestle at the 1995 Worlds and the 1996 Olympics. Not too many people can say they were there for the famous gold medal match between Jadidi and Angle, because the venue was so darn small. 6,000 capacity, maybe.

I was lucky to get a ticket at face value, minutes before the session started.

Shamrock, do you have a strong opinion about the refereeing of the Jadidi/Angle match?

I was there for the Angle Jadidi match. I would like to watch it on replay. I thought it was an extremely close match, though Jadidi's histrionics were somewhat over the top.

Jadidi is not nearly as powerful in Iran as he is on this forum.
