When did the Accolytes become the APA? I'm guessing it had to do with Undertaker becoming the American Badass, but I don't know when it happened. Anyone have even an approximate date?

I wanna say it happened around the time Crash became the Hardcore champion and started putting the belt on the line 24-7. He evemtually made a deal with the APA for protection and the gimmick went from there. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it happened sometime around then, even if that's not exactly how it happened.

Actually it was the night the Radicals debuted. They beat up the Mean Street Posse. In response, the MSP paid the Acolytes to protect them. This gave Bradshaw and the idea to start the APA. It was an attempt to play up on Bradshaw's real life finiancial expertise by having him start a business.

But don't take my word for it.

I think you're right with the Mean Street Posse being the first ones to ask for protection -- They were still called the Acolytes for awhile after that when they made their entrance -- before that, they were just two space-fillers in Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness (hence -- Acolytes) -- they were paired off and Mideon/Viscera were paired off

Don`t forget the couple of weeks when Mideon was hanging around with them, trying to be in the APA but wasn`t cool enough. He had his homemade APA+MIDEON = FRIENDS t-shirt.

They were actually paired together as an un-named team under the Jackel (Don Callis), but then he disappeared and a week or two later the ministry was formed and they were put with them. They weren't just two random guys in the Ministry like Mideon and Viscera who were paired together. They came into the ministry as a team.

Poor, poor Jackyl. He'd come along, set up a team, make some apocalyptic threats, then vanish just like that. Remember the Truth Commission and the Oddities? They were STOLEN from him, I tells ya!

Remember, he's "David Koresh-like". I'm actually pretty sure that Koresh didn't have his minions stolen by a big-breasted primadonna and a delusional Satan worshipper, but what the hey.

And if you want to be really anal-retentive, the APA personality first appeared on May 10, 1999:


    ACOLYTE BRADSHAW v. ACOLYTE FAAROOQ in a lumberjack match - yeah, they both look THRILLED to be there, don't they? Ha! "We are the UNION - live and in colour - don't dis the man or we'll bum rush your mutha" - BIG SHOW, TEST, and KING KEN SHAMROCK and their 2x4's walk out. Faarooq gets mic time! "Whoa, hey - I know that punk-ass Shawn Michaels think he's gonna come out here and make me and my partner fight each other for you aMOOZment, naw I don't think so! Because you and I know if there WAS a match, who the winner would be, right partner?" And they - well, do they agree or not? "You don't think - hey, Faarooq, the last six months, every night I've proven I can outdrink you - don't make me beat your ass to prove I can outfight you!" "Well I'll be DAMNED." "It's real easy! We got a heck of a team! Don't make me ruin it by handing you your ass!" Faarooq tosses the mic. Battle lines drawn - oh, wait, they're gonna make up. Yeah right. Both men turn - then strike simultaneously! Ha!



Of course, I remember this as the time Shawn Michaels, The Commish, brought back Cactus Jack "one night only" in Florida for His Worst Match Ever.
