• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW/WWF Legend “Faarooq” Ron Simmons celebrates his 61st birthday today. DAMN!
WCW Executive Vice President Bill Watts made him the first ever black World Heavyweight Champion in 1992, before Simmons joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1996 as Faarooq Asaad.
Faarooq eventually became the leader of the controversial faction Nation of Domination and later formed a Tag Team with Bradshaw (now known as JBL), called The Acolytes aka The A.P.A.!
In 2012, Simmons was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his former Tag Team partner Bradshaw.
