    Man, I don’t think you guys want to take credit for this one. My aunt worked for him, and loved him to smithereens, but other than her… not so much….

    I don’t know what is he doing in this list. According to his bio:
    His parents were ethnic Armenians born in the Ottoman Empire – his father in Aintab and his mother in Erzurum.

    Homeyra, have you seen Hatami’s Haji Washington?

    Do you know around what period he was ambassador?

    I haven’t seen the movie. Just googled: 1888, a contemporary of Hajji Sayyah.
    Short page here.

    So I just took him off the list… and so now your reputation is restored. 😛

    lol, yes!
    I can’t believe a cousin records this sort of wrestling programs on TV and watches them again!
    You made me look up his bio, I wasn’t aware that he used to be a “true” athlete!
