Maybe next time? There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and unfortunately that means not everyone can be featured on a regular basis. That can be a problem at times, as it leaves fans wondering where some of their favorites are every single week. That was the case again this week, and it seems that one such wrestler has not been around for a good while for a specific reason.
According to Fightful Select, SmackDown’s Mustafa Ali was not present at this week’s double SmackDown taping in his hometown of Chicago. Ali has been absent from both WWE television as well as the road since before Survivor Series due to taking paternity leave. Ali was sent home before his requested date and has not returned now that the time has come and gone. WWE reportedly has not brought him back as they simply do not have anything for him for either SmackDown. There is no word on when Ali will return to television or live events.
WWE is missing out on a talented star. Check out what Ali can do when he is around:
Opinion: This is very in line with WWE’s regular decisions, as there is little reason to keep Ali off of television other than WWE not being able to think of anything. Instead, we got Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss not being able to pull a sword out of a desk. You would think there would be a place for Ali somewhere, but for some reason WWE does not seem interested in presenting him for reasons that I don’t think I want to understand.
What do you think of Ali? How could he be used in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
