The story about Toronto mayor Rob Ford has taken an even weirder turn.

There are rightfully a lot of people offended by Ford’s alleged drug habits, but one man in particular wants to express his anger with fisticuffs, according to Huffington Post Canada.

That man is none other than former WWE Champion and WWE Hall of Famer Iron Sheik.

Sheiky Baby is in Toronto for a comedy roast and decided to go Toronto City Hall to make Ford humble. He challenged the embattled mayor to an arm wrestling match.

He also sent out some NSFW Tweets and another NSFW Instagram to let people know he meant business.

Meanwhile, Brutus Beefcake was apparently escorted out of Toronto City Hall by security for trying to speak with the Toronto mayor.
