Maybe not? WWE is structured differently than any other major wrestling promotion in the world. They have so many wrestlers running around their promotion that they almost have to split their roster up into various groups. That is the case with the Brand Split, which sees separate rosters for Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. Sometimes the wrestlers will switch shows, but in this case that might not be what happened.
With so many wrestlers on their roster, there are going to be several wrestlers who catch the fans’ eye. Sometimes it might be a promo or a character, but it could also be someone who puts so much heart into their matches that it is impossible to ignore them. That is the case with one popular wrestler today, who seems to have not been moved as originally reported.
According to Wrestlinews.co, Mustafa Ali was never actually moved from SmackDown to Monday Night Raw, contrary to previous reports. Ali’s WWE.com roster page was never actually switched over to Monday Night Raw and he has remained on SmackDown. However, Ali has not wrestled on WWE television since the December 13, 2019 SmackDown. Ali has been rumored to be revealed as the SmackDown hacker, but the story has not been referenced in over a month.
The guy has talent. Check out what he does when he is allowed in the ring:
Opinion: Ali is another great example of someone who should be able to become a top star just through sheer talent and charisma but for some reason WWE would rather leave him sitting on the sidelines for months at a time. I don’t quite get it, but making him the hacker would certainly be interesting. You know, assuming that WWE actually remembers the storyline is taking place.
What can Ali do in WWE? Will the hacker storyline be resolved? Let us know in the comments below.
