• Kurt Angle Reveals Which WWF Superstars Were The Locker Room Leaders Alongside The Undertaker During The Attitude Era
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Gold Medalist revealed that The Acolytes Protection Agency (APA), consisting of Bradshaw (later known as JBL) and ‘Faarooq’ Ron Simmons, were actually the locker room leaders alongside the #1 locker room leader The Undertaker, back in the WWF Attitude Era days.
Here’s what Kurt Angle said:
“Those guys were crazy, man! They drank all the time. They drank during the show, they drank before and after. They were crazy, but you know, surprisingly, even though they drank so much, they were kind of the in-ring locker room leaders with The Undertaker.
Those guys were like The Undertaker’s muscle, and you know, they set the rules in the locker room.
Understandably, Farooq and Bradshaw are badasses, and so is The Undertaker. Rightfully so, they should be the leaders.”
The APA teamed up from November 1998, when they were just known as The Acolytes, until they eventually split up in March 2004, which was done to give Bradshaw a huge singles push as a main eventer and eventually WWE Champion.
