During the match, Faarooq Asad debuted and attacked Johnson.[20] This was supposed to lead to a match at Summerslam for the Intercontinental Title. Soon after, he was diagnosed with legit kidney problems.[2] As a result, he was out for 4 months and to keep the storyline going the attack by Farooq was said to be the cause of the kidney damage.[2] By the time the news was made public on WWF programming, the 3rd (out of 4) showings of Raw from Seattle taped on the same night as the attack had not been broadcast, and it included an 11-man battle royal which Ahmed Johnson won. Voice-over correction was done such that Ahmed's participation in the battle royal was said to be against doctors' orders when in reality his kidney problem had yet to be discovered. The injury forced him to vacate his Intercontinental Championship, which was subsequently won in a tournament by Marc Mero.
