NATION OF DOMINATION - FAQ

Who have been members?
The original version was Faarooq and his manager Clarence Mason, with a group of no name jobbers. (including D-Lo Brown) The group was pretty much a parody of Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam. Soon after Crush joined the Nation since he was already managed by Mason and then Savio Vega joined a few months after Crush, by turning on his partner Ahmed Johnson.

After there was too much dissension in the group, Faarooq fired the whole group except D-Lo Brown and then brings in Nation enemy Ahmed Johnson and Kama Mustafa. The group turns on Ahmed weeks after and Rocky Maivia turns heel and joins the group soon after.

Rocky and Faarooq begin fighting over leadership in the group. Rocky brings Mark Henry in the group without consulting Faarooq. Soon after Rocky and the other members kick Faarooq out of the group and brings Owen Hart into the group. Rocky declares himself leader and renames the group from Nation of Domination to just The Nation.

Both Kama Mustafa and Owen Hart leave the group without too much notice. Mark Henry and D-Lo Brown kick Rocky out of the group. The group breaks up soon after.

Why did Ahmed Johnson join the Nation?
In the weeks leading up to his heel turn, WWF announcers talked up Ahmed's old gang roots and how he needed a gang situation to stay focused. At the "Cold Day in Hell" PPV in May 1997, Ahmed fought all three Nation members (Faarooq, Crush, and Savio) but was unable to beat them. WWF announcers then begin saying that Ahmed had a new respect for Faarooq and soon after Ahmed Johnson joined his enemies The Nation. Right after his heel turn he was to receive a WWF title shot against The Undertaker but was forced to give it up due to an injury. The injury ended up keeping Ahmed out for the whole turn and the WWF just decided to drop his heel turn. The Ahmed Johnson heel turn is generally thought of as one of the dumbest heel turns in history. But it is mostly blamed on Ahmed's injuries and not the WWF since they did try to explain the turn even though it didn't make sense.

Why was Ahmed Johnson dumped from the Nation so soon?
The decision was due to injuries and politics. Ahmed's heel turn gave him more heat from the fans than Faarooq had and it began to look like Ahmed was the actual leader of the Nation. Faarooq thought that he should be the true leader of the group and Ahmed's injuries were keeping him out of action. WWF officals then decided to drop Ahmed from the group and replace him by Rocky Maivia. Faarooq didn't stay the "true" leader of the Nation for long though as Rocky took over the same position as Ahmed was in and eventually replaced Faarooq as leader.

Since Ahmed's drop from the Nation was a late minute booking decision, it made no sense to WWF fans as did his joining the Nation did.

What were the "Gang Wars"?
After the original split of the Nation of Domination, the members all started their own factions: The Nation of Domination (still led by Faarooq), the Disciples of Apocolypse (led by Crush), and Los Boriquas (led by Savio Vega). The three groups all contained 4 members and fought each other for a couple months with no one group gaining an upper advantage. The whole storyline was controversial because the three groups consisted of all black, white, and latin members. The storyline was also very boring at times and produced very bad matches.

The Truth Commission stable was also involved in the feud, but only at the very end when the storyline was pretty much over.

Was Clarence Mason really a lawyer?
Yes. He was a lawyer of WWF's legal team that somehow was given a try as being a manager. He first showed up as Crush's lawyer and manager. He did well with that job so by Summerslam 1996 his management role turned into a full-time job as he started managing Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith. He then went on to manage the Nation of Domination until he was kicked out of the group by Faarooq. He returned to managing in WCW around 2000 when he managed Kanyon and then Harlem Heat 2000.
