• Mark Henry Recalls WWF Veteran Putting Pills In His Water
During a recent appearance on the Stone Cold Podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry talked about not liking WWF Veteran Ahmed Johnson.
We previously covered Henry talking about Ron Simmons beating the crap out of Ahmed Johnson and ending his push (tap here to read the complete story).
Henry talked about his dislike for Ahmed and how Ahmed once put pills in his water.
Below is what Henry said:
“As you can tell, I don’t like him. I never liked him. He was a bad example for a black man. People struggled to get in this business. And try to make it a success and to make it equal and better than equal and he was ruining it.
Ernie Ladd told me on my first day in the business, ‘Henry, don’t mess it up for everyone that looks like you afterwards.’ And I feel like Ahmed didn’t get that memo. Nobody told him. I think he was such a liar and people didn’t have enough faith in him to do the right thing that they wouldn’t have helped him anyways. So he ended up doing his own thing.
He tried to pill me one night. I went out to eat with him and Fatu. I turned my drink up and there’s two Somas in my water. I don’t drink alcohol. Two Soma’s could have killed me for all I know. I said, ‘Look guys, who put this in my drink?’
Fatu said, ‘Look man, I’m not saying nothing about nobody else but I didn’t do it.’ And there’s only two of them sitting there. I said, ‘Don’t finish your meal because I’m going outside and we’re going to handle this outside.’ I waited 30-40 minutes. I just threw his and Fatu’s bags out of the car and went on my way to Miami.
So, I never liked Ahmed since. He never apologized or anything. I’m a guy who has based my life off being drug free and you’re going to try and pill me? You go to prison for that now.”
