Ahmed Johnson, a muscular wrestler who achieved fame in WWE during the mid-1990s, is reportedly enjoying his latest run in the company under the ring name “Ezekiel Jackson.”

“I’m having a blast,” Johnson told Kayfabe News. “I took a much-needed break after my last WWE run, and now I’m better than ever. As Ezekiel Jackson, I can showcase different aspects of my personality and ring style.”

Johnson says he is aiming to reclaim the Intercontinental Championship — his 1996 reign was cut short due to kidney problems — and he hopes to compete someday for the world championship.

“As Ezekiel, I’m going to far surpass what I accomplished as Ahmed,” he said. “Mark my words.”

Sources at WWE indicate that Johnson may soon form a tag team with another muscle-bound giant, Mason Ryan, who enjoyed an earlier WWE tenure under the moniker “Batista.”
