Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches. 

This week, we’re looking at the career of Ron Simmons. Known as Faarooq in WWE, we take a look at Simmons’ career from his time in WCW and his WCW Championship win to his time as one-half of the Acolytes alongside Bradshaw. Watch the matches, listen to the promos, and follow along with Evan & Javier as they break down Simmons’ legendary career.
