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????
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?
