That’s quite the bold statement. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster today and as a result, there are only so many ways to stand out. Unfortunately that means a lot of talented wrestlers are left trying to get some attention, which can be rather frustrating for the fans. It can also be frustrating for the wrestlers and one of them has something to say about his situation.
Monday Night Raw’s Mustafa Ali was a guest on this week’s edition of the Bump and spoke about his career in WWE. This included a discussion of the hacker gimmick, which Ali felt had some legs, as well as a suggestion that it could return someday. Ali also said that he was the most unheard voice in the history of WWE as well as the most underutilized talent the company has ever seen. He also asked where his justice was and said all he needed was an opportunity. Ali is scheduled to face Mansoor at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia later this month.
There’s a lot to this. Check out the full show (with Ali’s time beginning at about 30:00), plus some of Ali’s work in WWE:
Opinion: I’ve always liked Ali and it would be great to see him get a chance. That being said, I think WWE feels he already has with things like Retribution, which was never given a real shot. Other than that, I’m a bit skeptical about Ali getting a shot, which is a shame as he really is that good. There are very few people who can bring out an emotional response like he can but that has never been able to come out on the main roster.
What do you think of Ali? Will he be a champion in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
