Former WWE Star Speaks On Racism In WWE, Famous Gay Kiss Segment, More
The following are highlights from a recent Under The Mat interview with former WWE Superstar Ahmed Johnson:
On facing racial issues during his WWE run: “I go out to the parking lot and one of them boys scratched on my car ‘Congratulations N*****!’ Come on Dog what kind of s*** is that? I went straight to Vince and they acted all concerned but they didn’t even bring it up in the big meeting.”
On an idea Vince McMahon had for his character in WWE: “You know I dress how I dress, relax and cool. Shane McMachon comes to me one time and says his dad wants him to change how he dresses. Now this isn’t on TV, this is off TV. They wanted me to get a Gold Tooth, a bunch of chains, and wear my pants sagging. That’s what they wanted me to dress like right before I walked out of there. They want that image of an unintelligent dumbass n***** that what they were shooting for.”
On his reaction to being kissed on the lips by Goldust: “Oh, he got me! Let me tell you how it was supposed to go down. First of all, that was a live TV taping so whatever happened happened. So me and Goldust went over this shit over and over again during the pre-tape. I told him when we did mouth to mouth don’t touch my lips put your hand over my mouth and do it to your hand, nobody is going to know. The camera won’t be that close up to where anybody would see that and we worked out the angle with the camera man and everything. So I’m lying there and Goldust thought it would be (sic) if he did it. So I’m lying there and the part is coming up and I feel this mother f***** lips and, man, I lost it!”
