In 1995, the World Wrestling Federation was greeted by a powerhouse from the streets of Pearl River. Ahmed Johnson
was all business in the ring. During his Monday Night Raw debut, he showed he was for real when he bodyslammed Yokozuna.
Johnson had one of the most impressive starts in WWF history and continued handing opponents quick lessons, including a win over
Buddy Landell at In Your House: Season's Beatings in less then 45 seconds.
At the 1996 King of the Ring, he made history when he defeated Goldust to become the first African-American
Intercontinental Champion. He also formed an alliance with "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels and battled Camp Cornette. Unfortunately,
a serious kidney injury at the hands of Farooq forced him to vacate the championship. When Johnson returned to action, he
had an on-and-off relationship with the Nation of Domination.

His WWF career ended in 1998 as a brother in arms to the Legion of Doom and Ken Shamrock. Johnson, however, didn't vanish
from the spotlight entirely. In 2001, he appeared in the movie Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story.
