Default Deep Sleepers #2 The Zambui Express

The second installment of "Deep Sleepers" are the duo The Zambui Express. Elijah Akeem and Kareem Muhammad. The two were both massive 300 plus monsters and wore camo tops, dark shades, and long tights to go with the militant gimmick. They wrestled together in the Georgia, Florida, and Memphis territories winning tag belts on three different occasions. Their run was memorable managed by Oliver Humperdink and other heel managers during the era, but each man also had fine careers outside of their alliance. Their imposing size and intimidating look just made you feel like they were unstoppable.

Akeem worked for a few years as Bad Leroy Brown his real name was Roland Daniels. He wreslted primarily in tag teams, winning tag titles with such standouts as Tim Brooks, Bad News Allen, Bill Irwan, and Ernie Ladd. His career came to an early end as his heart gave way while he was only 37.

Muhammad had a longer career and also wrestled under the name Ray Candy. His real name was Ray Canty. He won over 20 regional titles, the majority of which were in tag teams. He won titles teaming with legends like Dory Funk and Abdullah the Butcher. His most significant run came in Florida on his own, (as Kareem Muhammad) winning their heavyweight title and fueding with the top faces there including a memorable fued with Blackjack Mulligan. His only national exposure came in the WCW 1988 as one half of the Commandoes who had a very brief run. Muhammed also passed away very young at age 42.

Although the duo had a relatively short career together the Zambui Express will be remembered as a physically indtimidating team that made an impression on those enough lucky enough to see them.

Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.
