Ron Simmons Reflects On Transforming From The Acolytes To The APA

WWE Hall of Famer Ron Simmons recently appeared at the Music City Multi Con, where he talked about a number of topics including his tag team with fellow WWE Hall of Famer JBL and how they went from the Acolytes to the APA.

Simmons said, “We just morphed into ourselves is what really happened! He and I got a similar background: he’s a football player and me coming from the same thing. Our personalities were similar outside of the ring and so when they said ‘Hey, well, what about if we just put these guys together?’ And I don’t think anybody, to be honest with you, were thinking that the success we had was going to come about. Because, if you’ve been in a tag before, you can feel it. You can feel if it’s going to work. And in that short period of time, we were together, we knew that we were on to something there and that it was clicking with the people.”
