That would have been something. There are all kinds of ways to present a wrestler and one of the most important is with their theme music. The right song can give a wrestler the vibe that the promotion wants, which sets the tone for whatever they are going to be doing. Getting the correct fit can be tricky, and apparently a modern star was going to dust off one of the all time classic wrestling themes.
Last year, Mustafa Ali posted a video to Twitter showing a new character featuring Ali talking about how much of an American he was. The gimmick was ultimately scrapped though and Ali went on hiatus for several months. A fan has since reached out to Ali on Twitter, suggesting that Ali use Hulk Hogan’s Real American theme because real Americans come in every shape, size and skin tone. Ali responded, revealing that the original plan called for him to use the Real American theme, though this never took place.
…at one point that was the plan! https://t.co/5PtuE1J9kc

Opinion: This could have been quite the way to go and it would have fit rather well. The theme of the song is that America is for everyone and that would have been the perfect way to present the character. I’m not sure why WWE didn’t do this when it was such a perfect idea. Maybe that is where WWE will go in the future, but at the moment I don’t exactly see it happening.
What do you think of the idea? How would it have worked for Ali? Let us know in the comments below.
