Former WWE Superstar Ahmed Johnson is no longer covering his body in baby oil, but oil still plays a role in the former Intercontinental Champion’s life.
Sitting down with “Wrestle Binge,” Johnson said he is asked about a return to wrestling but is happy with his current career as part of the oil business. He said,
“You know [people say], ‘Where you been, man? Why you working here, man?’ But [the oil company] pay real good. The oil company industry period pays good money, and so I got blessed, man. I struck oil.”
While no part of wrestling anymore, Johnson has spoken critically of stars he has worked with before and has claimed The Rock isn’t the man he appears to be.
Johnson has claimed that Yokozuna was jealous of him and that Shawn Michaels nixed his chance to become WWE Champion.
Johnson joined the WWF in 1995 and became the promotion’s first black Intercontinental Champion. He left the company in 1998 and later competed in WCW.
