268. Ahmed Johnson
It may be hard to believe now, but there was a time in the mid 90’s where Ahmed Johnson was the most over babyface in the WWF with the exception of Shawn Michaels.  Johnson was big and powerful and with his quiet yet fierce demeanor, fans bought into his street guy made good image.  Numerous injuries combined with an ill-advised heel turn, than subsequent face turn caused fans to lose interest in the muscular African-American.  By the end of his run, Johnson was accused of being sloppy in the ring and causing legitimate injuries to the other workers.  Had Ahmed Johnson not been injury prone, it is possible that he would have gone down as one of the most popular black wrestlers of all time.

Shawn Michaels was over in 1996? Then why did so many adult male fans switch to WCW then? Ahmed was BY FAR more over than HBK.
