Ahmed Johnson was someone who possessed a ton of potential but things just didn’t pan out well for him. Vince McMahon loved his look and they were going to strap a rocket to him.
Johnson picked up the IC Title and feuded with the Nation Of Domination. But unfortunately, Jim Cornette remembers Johnson for way more negative things than good. Corney discussed Johnson’s ego, his work rate, and his poor microphone skills and said that whatever he had been doing to stay in such amazing shape obviously didn’t stick by the time Ahmed showed up in WCW.

Jim Cornette told one story about Ahmed Johnson after he left WWE on a recent episode of Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru in order to put things into perspective as to how bad Ahmed’s ego got at times.
“My favorite Ahmed story was what he did to Dennis Coralluzzo when finally his brief career — I mean he went from main eventing WWF pay-per-views and two years later he’s working for Dennis Coralluzzo in Rahway, New Jersey or where ever, that’s about how it happened.”
“But in that instance, Dennis had booked him and he was in his hotel — Ahmed was in his room and Dennis sent a guy to pick him up to take him to the show and Ahmed didn’t want to ride in the guy’s car and said ‘I need a limousine’ and refused to leave the hotel — after flying to New Jersey from apparently from Texas he refused to leave the hotel in wherever the f-ck D-ck Lick New Jersey it was to go five minutes to the f-cking high school unless he had a limousine.”
“So Dennis announced at the show on the PA system in front of a sold-out crowd that Ahmed had refused to come to the show from the hotel to wrestle for those fine folks because we didn’t send a limousine for him so if you’d like to call him and express your displeasure his number is boom-boom-boom and gave the number and the room number and people called him all f-cking night.”
“So he flew to New Jersey, didn’t work, didn’t get paid cause he didn’t get a limo, didn’t didn’t get any sleep, and went back f-cking home — that’s the last I’ve heard of Ahmed Johnson. He was the sh-ts.”
When you get so much popularity in such a rapid manner, sometimes it doesn’t work out too well. It’s a tale as old as time and sadly it affected Ahmed Johnson’s possible future with WWE. But at least we got a rather interesting story out of it thanks to his hijinks at an indie wrestling event in New Jersey.
