• Former WWF Star Says Shawn Michaels & Steve Austin’s Racism Resulted In Him Not Winning The WWF World Title
During a recent appearance on ‘Why It Ended’ podcast, former WWF Superstar Ahmed Johnson talked about how Shawn Michaels & Steve Austin’s racism held him back in the World Wrestling Federation.
Below is what he said:
“I was supposed to work against Shawn (Michaels) for the World Championship, but that kept getting pushed back further and further. There were people getting hurt and different things happening. I believe that if things would have went by the book the way I wanted to I would have probably been World Champion.
I do think that it was behind my back, not just from what Shawn was saying, but some other racist boys were saying, I really do.
Because with the things I heard from some of the boys about what Shawn was saying about handing over the belt to an African American and this, that, and the other. Then when I won the Intercontinental belt, someone scratched, ‘Congratulations Ni**er’ on my car — on my rental car.
Then you got some people saying it was Shawn, some saying it was Steve (Austin). I don’t know which one it was but they were all too cowardly to stand up to it.”
