Those ex-wrestlers storming city hall? They’re a PR stunt for a sandwich shop
Rob Ford’s extraordinary week of woes became extra-surreal yesterday when Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake became the second ex-wrestler in two days to storm city hall—the first being The Iron Sheik, who rolled in on Wednesday to challenge Ford to an arm-wrestling match. Now it turns out the pair share more than muscles, a propensity for belligerence and a common mission to save the mayor from himself. They also share an agent: Page Magen, the co-owner of Magen Boys Entertainment, which is currently involved with an Indigogo campaign to raise money for a documentary titled Iranian Legend: The Iron Sheik Story. Magen and his brother Jian also co-own The Belly Buster Submarines, the same sandwich shop The Barber is seen promoting in footage from yesterday’s supposedly impromptu rampage. And the same sandwich shop the Sheik recently raved about on Twitter. And the same sandwich shop that sponsored The Iron Sheik Roast, a comedy show that took place yesterday at a venue on College Street. So, not so impromptu after all.
