The summary states:

A group of new school professional wrestlers are roasting wrestling legend The Iron Sheik when lightning strikes and gives life to a rare Iron Sheik doll. The sentient doll hunts the disrespectful wrestlers with the intent of making them humble.

The trailer for The Iron Sheik Massacre is wild. In just a glimpse of the violence, Sheiky Baby shot Kross in the head with a crossbow, took Taya to Stabtown, and stomped on snack crackers.
