• “I can outdraw Stone Cold. Just give me that gimmick” – WWF Veteran Wanted To Be The Black Stone Cold
During a recent episode of ‘Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw’, Old School WWF Legend The Godfather talked about his former co-member in The Nation of Domination, Ahmed Johnson.
Charles Wright (Godfather’s real name) claimed that Johnson wanted to be a black version of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.
Here’s what the 2016 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“I had a really good time in that group and became friends with everybody in that group, except Ahmed Johnson. I remember him going to Jerry just about the end of it, Jerry Brisco, and him telling Jerry, ‘I wanna be the black Stone Cold. I’m gonna be a black Stone Cold.’ Yeah, okay, you are going to be the black Stone Cold, alright.”
Brisco then went on to confirm it:
“I remember it very clearly. You know, you look at the guy, he had the physical tools and everything that you require, but he just didn’t get it inside that squared circle. You could have all those imposing tools but unless you get it up here [mindset] too, you know, you’re not gonna go anywhere. ‘I’m Stone Cold, I can outdraw Stone Cold. Just give me that gimmick, I can do it.’”
Ahmed Johnson became the first black WWF Intercontinental Champion in history, when he defeated Goldust at the King of the Ring 1996 PPV.
