Booker T: Ahmed Johnson Is A Notorious Liar And Lowdown Scum

It doesn’t sound as if Booker T has any love for former WWE Superstar Ahmed Johnson.

In an Interview with WrestlingNews.Co, Johnson shared that he has issues with the current NXT Commentator. Following this, on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T addressed these accusations. The former World Heavyweight Champion claimed that he would never acknowledge these claims as he believes Johnson is a lying scum.

“If Ahmed Johnson is doing conventions and stuff now, if he wants to say something to me about this, because I’m sure he’s gonna hear about it, I’m not gonna ever acknowledge him because like I said, he’s a lying, lowdown, scum. I’ll never acknowledge him, but if he ever acknowledged me, I would definitely proceed. I just wanted to put that out there.”

“Like I said, he’s a notorious liar. He said he played for the Dallas Cowboys. He said he was in a game. If you played for the Dallas Cowboys, anybody from ’85 to ’95, go look on any scroll, and I’m not gonna even call him Ahmed Johnson anymore because that’s not his name. His name is Tony Norris. That’s what his name is. WWE owns Ahmed Johnson, okay. He’s not Ahmed Johnson. He’s Tony Norris. Like I said, if I ever see him, you know, we’ll deal if he wants to say something to me, but for me, for my part, I’m never going to acknowledge someone like him because I know what kind of person I am and to hear someone like him disparage me,” Booker T said.

Booker T weighs in on the issue with Ahmed Johnson

Booker T carried on by mentioning that his brother was one of the people who helped Johnson to be a part of WCW.

“Ahmed Johnson, you know, he’s made a lot of claims and I just want to clear them up. He said, you know, when he came into WCW, my brother and I, you know, were having problems was the reason why my brother got him to come in. My brother got him in to help him make some money. That was it.”

“I saw Ahmed Johnson about two months ago at the airport. I was on my way to Florida, I walked up and we made eye contact. He looked at me and he smiled. I turned left and I went to the counter and I proceeded to get on the plane, I didn’t even speak to him. I didn’t even acknowledge him because he’s a lying, a notorious lying, lowdown, piece of you know what, and that’s the reason I didn’t even acknowledge him.”

The WWE Hall of Famer also shared that he and Johnson had an issue during their time in wrestling school. He also stated that Johnson was the one who wanted to ‘squash’ any animosity they had with each other.

As Booker explained it, Johnson got upset with Booker over not practicing powerbombs at Ivan Putski’s wrestling school. Booker says he never had a problem with Johnson before. Now, after Johnson did the podcast, Booker seems to have changed his tune.

“I never disliked Ahmed Johnson. Me personally, I don’t even know where he’s getting half the stuff that he’s saying. But then again, I do,” Booker added, “because he’s a notorious, lowdown, piece of you know what.”
