Just as a happy sidenote, as I was looking (unsuccessfully) to put the old PG-13 entrance rap as a tribute here, do you realize that if you google search "faarooq so hit your knees and start praying" that the first three links are to either the W or to one of CRZ's old recaps?
As a personal rememebrance I remember watching Ron Simmons when he was greener than freshly cut grass and working in Florida after leaving the USFL. They booked him to protect him back then, since after Luger and Windham left they were grooming him to be the #1 babyface in the territory, but the territory was bought out by Crockett before that could happen.
Also, the one thing I remember most about seeing him at the MBCC when I was a kid was he blew something in the ring and I heard the loudest deepest voice I've ever heard just bellow out GOD...DAMN!! Which in wrestling mythology has to be right up there with Austin's KotR 96 promo as a legend being born.
Originally posted by BWTApparently Faarooq's release was due to a drug problem, just the nature of the business i guess.
From where did you hear that?
I heard this too. I was out walking my dog, and Bret Hart came up and told me.
ANYWAY, I have a DVD from WRESTLING CLASSICS which shows a bunch of old FLorida area footage from the Mike Graham promotion, and they were showing Ron and some other football reject working out, and playing ball and stuff like that. Pretty interesting.
Kinda strange that Faarooq is the one considered having a drinking partner while his partner is the one rumored and reported to cause a scene everytime they have a long plane ride.
One thing I always like about Faarooq is the delivery of his lines just like we saw in the last Smackdown he was very good at it.

A year or so ago, Simmons was slated to become an agent, which would have made him part of management. Now, that option has been shut down. The word I have gotten was that he allegedly acted inappropriately towards Stephanie McMahon at the post WrestleMania party last weekend and that was the final straw for him. The APA way of life is supposed to be a gimmick, not a shoot.
HA HA HA! This just got a whole lot more interesting and I like Farooq a lot more now. DAMN!

I read this and I think of Simmons talking shit to Stephanie and HHH being afraid to say anything. Somehow Simmons seems like one guy you dont want to mess with after hes had a few.
Well, well, well. If it isn't the serious, elusive, Leroy Green. I've been waiting a long time for this Leroy. I am sick and tired of hearing these bullshit Superman stories about the wassa legendary Bruce Leroy catching bullets with his teeth. Catches bullets with his teeth? Nigga please.
Y'know, I really wonder how this stuff about 'Taker first got started. In Mankind's book, Calloway was described as a great worker and someone who wasn't unwilling to put over an overweight guy in a leather mask noone'd ever heard of.
