History

The original Nation of Domination was formed in 1996 in the USWA. The group was led by PG-13. The group also consisted of Kareem Olajuwon, Sir Mohammad, Akeem Mohammad, Elijah, Shaquille Ali, Randy X, and Queen Moisha. This group never really got off the ground in the USWA but they saw greater success in the WWF. PG-13 is the tag team of J.C. Ice & Wolfie D who worked for the WWF and USWA.

The heel group was originally formed in the WWF when wrestler Faarooq was joined by manager Clarence Mason. The group was based loosely on the Nation of Islam. The two men were also accompanied by two unnamed actors, Albert Armstrong and William Beach, who were supposed to represent other members of the Nation. Other wrestlers joined the Nation over time, including (in order) PG-13 (a tag team consisting of JC Ice and Wolfie D.), Crush, Savio Vega, and D'Lo Brown. This lineup of the group remained intact until Faarooq became angry with them and fired the entire group with the exception of Brown.

Faarooq promised that he would deliver a "bigger and blacker" version of the Nation, which led to the induction of Kama Mustafa and Ahmed Johnson into the group. Johnson would be forced out of the group due to injury and replaced by Rocky Maivia (later known as The Rock).The Rock later took over from Faarooq opposing the likes of DX. Meanwhile, former Nation members Vega and Crush formed their own rival factions, Los Boricuas and the Disciples of Apocalypse respectively. This led to a WWF style "gang war" that was heavily criticized for separating each faction by race, eventually turning the "gang war" into an angle based on racism.
