44. Nickolai Volkoff & The Iron Shiek

Era: '80s

Speaking of stereotypes, we cannot go any further without discussing some of the best stereotyping of the modern era. Volkoff and Shiek were Russian and Iranian ex-patriots in the midst of the Cold War and Iran contra. Both dressed simply with Shiek's curled pointy boots probably being the only really unique piece of flare that they wore. The look was all about the flags, though. Each one waved their country's flag before matches with Volkoff singing a classic rendition of the Russian national anthem which in the '80s was a heat magnet. Shiek went on to become a hilariously rambling lunatic in his old age with Volkoff becoming an elected official in the Maryland state legislature. Obviously. -PR
