Ahmed Johnson didn't recognize D'Lo Brown and paid the price for it.
Speaking with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, The Godfather said the most memorable backstage fight he can remember involved D'Lo Brown and Ahmed Johnson. The three men were all part of the Nation of Domination together, albeit briefly, in 1997. Johnson left the group after only two months and was replaced one week later by Rocky Maivia (The Rock).
Here is what happened when D'Lo and Ahmed fought, according to The Godfather:
"D'Lo whooped his ass. D'Lo's a real wrestler, he was a collegiate wrestler. D'Lo had him hooked so bad and he's trying to tap out and D'Lo had him hooked so bad that me and Ron [Simmons] had to tell D'Lo, 'let him go, let him go,' because D'Lo was just going to break his arm or something. That was the best one I've seen."
The Godfather (Charles Wright) doesn't know why the two were fighting but says that Ahmed didn't fit in and that nobody could stand him. He added the following:
"I just remember D'Lo and him going at it. I don't remember why. Ahmed Johnson -- he just didn't get it. He didn't fit in with us either. At that point, everybody couldn't stand him. I'm about the only guy that doesn't have real, nasty things to say about him. I just tell people he didn't get it. We tried to help him and he just didn't get it."
Johnson would finish up with the WWF in February of 1998, later citing family reasons for his departure.
D'Lo Brown currently serves as one half of the IMPACT Wrestling commentary team alongside Matt Striker.
