John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Ron Simmons will be inducting Teddy Long into the WWE Hall of Fame in a few weeks time.
The duo, who formed the APA tag team in the WWE, have a long history with the ex referee and Smackdown General Manager, being travel buddies along with The Godfather during their time in WWE.
For Simmons, his relationship with Teddy Long goes even way back to the WCW days. Long was the manager of Ron Simmons and Butch Reed, who together were known as Doom. Long also managed Simmons occasionally after he won the WCW title from Vader in 1992.
