“Trust me, if Shawn sees anybody trying to go up the ladder, he’s gonna hold them back,” Johnson said.

“He had his hand on me for a while trying to hold me down. In the beginning, I didn’t understand it, but later on, I understood The Kliq was all about President Shawn running the nation. I just let it play out. If he ever got too far with it, I was gonna have to do what I have to do, but he didn’t go too far with me with it”.

He also recalled the Montreal Screwjob that occurred in 1997. He spoke about Vince McMahon having a meeting with his staff after the screwjob. “I felt so sorry for Bret on that one. I couldn’t believe they were gonna do that in his hometown,” Johnson stated.

“It did give me second thoughts. It played a big part in my decision when I left. He was cool. He was Bret. I didn’t have a problem with him. The Kliq kept getting together. They always got together, but this was more than usual.

“You had this funny feeling something was going on, but I did speak out during our meeting the next day. I did speak out against what I thought was wrong. Vince was leading the meeting and basically, his answer was, ‘You don’t like what we’re doing here, move on.'

” The screwjob is an extremely infamous incident and many people still remember just how bad it was for everyone involved. That was the reason why Bret Hart left the WWE and joined WCW, where Goldberg ended his career with a vicious head kick.

Johnson then spoke about Michaels being a born-again Christian but at the same time being a hunter. “I think it’s still work,” Johnson said. “‘I love Jesus’ and you’re still shooting little deer?” Ahmed Johnson wasn’t a very popular WWE star. He did win the intercontinental title but was never considered a main even talent.
