Mustafa Ali made an impact during his debut on the main roster a few years ago. Fans were hopeful about his future in the company, but it was all in vain. His run as the leader of Retribution did not help matters either.
Ali requested his release from WWE, which was not necessarily a shock for fans. However, WWE would deny Mustafa Ali’s release request. Ali had to sit at home for several months after that.
Finally, Mustafa Ali returned on this week’s episode Of Monday Night RAW. He beat The Miz in a singles match and also made it clear what his intentions are.
While speaking with Kevin Kellam, Mike Bennett talked about Mustafa Ali’s booking in WWE. He blasted WWE for not using Ali properly.
“My whole thing is, let the most talented people have the best jobs. I think, recently we have been going in that direction. I do believe thatAEW has done a terrific job of giving the best wrestlers the best spots. I think Impact has been doing a great job most of the time. WWE is simply terrible at that. But I think everyone knows that I’m kind of beating a dead horse about that. You have a guy like Ali and you send him home and you don’t do anything with him. Now they brought him back but you have a guy. Clearly, this guy is one of the best on your roster. Why wouldn’t you use him? I think that needs to go away”
Mustafa Ali is also going after Austin Theory’s WWE United States Championship. We will have to wait and see whether he will be able to win the title or not.
