• Ahmed Johnson Backed Off From A Fight With The Rock, Says WWF Legend
On an episode of his weekly ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, Old School WWF Legend ‘Brother Love’ Bruce Prichard revealed that Ahmed Johnson backed off from a fight with The Rock back in the day.
Here’s what Prichard said about the incident:
“I was there when Rock backed him down.
With Rock, it was the same kind of thing. It was in the dressing room. Ahmed was complaining about something and Rock just kind of, basically, ‘If you want to go, let’s go.’ Ahmed backed down and nobody was stopping anybody in that one. I was there in the dressing room for that.
The Rock is up there in the top 5 guys you would never want to mess with.”
