I. Intro

	Hey, It's me Gruel. I'm here this time to deliver the movelist for 
Faarooq this time. Hope you enjoy the list and find it very useful.


II. Mini-Faarooq Bio & Tidbits

	Real Name: Ron Simmons
	Former identities, names, nicknames: Ron Simmons(WCW, 1990-1995), 
	Faarooq Essad(WWF, 1996), Faarooq(WWF, 1996-Current)
	Major Titles Held: WWF Tag Team Title (2)with Bradshaw(2), WCW 
	World Title, WCW Tag Title with Butch Reed
	Former Ring Escorts: Sunny(WWF, 1996), Clarence Mason(WWF, 1996-
	1997), The Jackyl(WWF, 1998)

		Faarooq wrestled in WCW from about 1990(not sure) to around
	late 1995. He wrestled by his real name, Ron Simmons. Simmons 
	turned out to be a great singles competitor, and became the first
	African American to win a major orginization's belt when he 
	Big Van Vader in a house show in 1992, Simmons lost the strap back
	to Vader later that year.

		Simmons later won the WCW Tag Belts in early 1993 with Buth 
	Reed, known as the team of Doom from the Steiners, but when they
	won the belts, they had already lost them, due to some weird 
	television taping schedule. Simmons finished up his WCW career
	in 1995, and signed with the WWF. 

		On a July episode of RAW in 1996, the WWF World Champ, Shawn
	Michaels, and the WWF Intercontanental Champ, Ahmed Johnson faced
	the Smoking Gunns(Billy Gunn & Bart Gunn) for the Tag Team Titles,
	during the match, Simmons ran out dressed in some weird midevil 
	like outfit(sorta Glacier like costum and weird helmet) and 
	started to beat the crap out of Ahmed Johnson with Sunny cheering 
	him on. After the match in a backstage interview with Simmons and 
	Sunny, Ross started calling this new mystery man by his real name, 
	Ron Simmons, but Simmons responed by saying he no longer wants to 
	be recognized by that name and will now be known as Farroq Essaad.
	Later in July, Farrooq pummeled Ahmed again, injuring him of his
	kidney, and so Ahmed was stripped of the WWF IC belt. 

		An 8-man tournament started for the vacant belt and in the
	finals on an October edition of RAW, Faarooq faced "Wildman" Marc
	Mero. The loss came when Sunny accidentally nailed Faarooq Essaad
	with a brick, causing him the loss. After the match Faarooq Essaad
	and Sunny parted ways and Faarooq wasn't seen until an November
	episode of Live Wire. You might recognize Live Wire as a WWF TV
	show that recaps highlights from episodes of RAW and Smackdown, 
	but back then it was a live show, that had a weekly guest and you
	can call in and ask your own questions. Anyways this was the day
	before the Survivor Series and Faarooq was scheduled in one of 
	those 8-man elimination matches. He came out on Live Wire with
	Clarence Mason, and started to talk about a new era in the WWF 
	called the Nation of Domination, we didn't know what he was
	talking about, but the next day at the Survivor Series, he came
	out with Clarence Mason, and a couple of bodyuards(one of 'em
	know goes by the name of D-Lo Brown). 

		By January 1997, Crush and Savio Vega joined the NoD. They
	seemed to be a dominating group with nothing to lose, but Ahmed
	Johnson came back with a vengeance in Januaruy and finally fought
	Faarooq in a match at the Royal Rumble, Ahmed won by DQ after
	other Nation members interfered, and Ahmed challenged Faarooq,
	Vega, and Crush to a triple tag team no holds barred match against
	him and his mystery partners at Wrestlemania 13. The partners
	turned out to be a returning Legion of Doom, and of course, they
	won the match.

		Faarooq then started to get tired of Nation members costing
	him matches. Especially a world title match against the Undertaker
	at the June 1996 King of the Ring. The next day on RAW Crush and
	Vega left the group, and Faarooq fired all NoD members, except
	D-Lo. A couple of weeks later, Farrooq formed the new NoD with
	D-Lo, Kama Mustafa(now known as The Godfather), and Ahmed Johnson.
	About a month later the new NoD kicked Ahmed out of the group and 
	replaced him with Rocky Maivia a day later. 

		Things seemed to flow around smoothly with the NoD until 
	Rocky won the IC belt in December, and started to get cocky, and
	started to call himself "The Rock." Things finally boiled up and
	the day after Wrestlemania 14, The Rock and Faarooq went at it
	and the whole NoD kicked Faarooq out of the group. Faarooq then
	temporarily joined forces with Steve Blackman and Ken Shamrock
	in a little stable and beat the Nation in a triple tag match at
	the April 1998 PPV: In Your House: Unforgiven, where Faarooq 
	pinned Rocky after his finisher, the Dominator. Faarooq lost
	to the Rock in a IC Title match the next month at the Over the 
	Edge PPV, and after that loss, things started to go downhill
	for Faarooq. He started to lose most of his matches, and seemed
	to go on a constant losing streak until after a loss against
	The Godfather on the Heat PPV Preshow of the October PPV: In
	Your House: Judgement Day, where after the match, The Jackyl
	came out and started to console Faarooq telling him about more 
	high hopes. The Jackyl did the same after Bradshaw suffered a 

		Later in November, Faarooq and Bradshaw came out and did
	random beatings on episodes of RAW, with the Jackyl by there
	side. Both guys were completely gimmick changed and both started
	to sport black trunks and body tattoos of werid symbols. The team
	were dubbed the Acolytes. In December, The Jackyl's contract 
	expired and he went to sign with ECW. The Acolytes resurfaced in
	January 1999 and were members of the Ministry of Darkness, with
	the Undertaker as there leader. The Acolytes started to dominate
	the tag team ranks, and won the tag team belts from Kane & X-Pac
	on an May 1999 episode of RAW, with help from Shane McMahon. 

		They lost the belts a month later to the Hardy Boyz in June, 
	but regained them a month later at the July PPV: Fully Loaded, and
	lost them in early August to Kane & X-Pac.

		The Ministry disappeared, and the Acolytes went on there own
	still dominating the tag team ranks, they won a 7-tag team 
	elimination match at Summerslam, and beat the Dudley Boyz at the
	September PPV: Unforgiven, and still are on a roll. More tag team
	gold shots are definately in the future for the Acolytes.
