Mustafa Ali was revealed as the leader of Retribution, and then he admitted that he was the SmackDown hacker. When they wrote the storyline it was not the plan to wrap the hacker angle into things, but they did tie everything together. Still, Retribution is continually mocked.

Ali dropped a new video promo from the hacker’s Message account. He is obviously not satisfied about how Retribution has been treated, and he is seeking a serious change of pace for his stable. He asked fans to “imagine something,” and he continued to cut a very personal promo in the process.

“I want you to imagine something. I want you to imagine being judged by your name. I want you to imagine being mocked because of how you look. Now I want you to imagine a man named Mustafa Ali that has given names and masks to members of Retribution so they too can be judged by their names. They too can be mocked because of how they look. They too can see the world the way he sees it. Imagine that.”

Retribution is in a very interesting situation right now. They entered the picture in WWE as a very hot angle, but they diminished considerably in recent weeks. We’ll have to see if WWE can pull the nose up on Retribution before they plummet further, but Mustafa Ali certainly seems eager to do what he can to change things.
