Mustafa Ali had a lot of potential after debuting on the main roster a few years ago. Unfortunately, a slew of unfortunate injuries and bad booking would ruin all of that. Ali has been back for a while now and he does not regret airing his grievances either.
Ali requested his release from WWE, which was not necessarily a surprise for fans. The company did not grant him his release. Instead, Ali returned to WWE television last month.
Since then, Mustafa Ali has been feuding with Austin Theory for the WWE United States Championship. While speaking on After The Bell with Corey Graves, Mustafa Ali made it clear he does not regret airing his grievances with WWE publicly.
“I believe private conversations are meant to be private. The reason it went public is because that private conversation went nowhere,” Ali said. He went on to further explain his point.
“So anyone that truly knows me, and I know there’s a portion of the audience that was like, ‘How unprofessional’, but anyone that’s ever worked with me or dealt with me as a human being knows how much I love this place, how much I love sports entertainment, and how much I love wrestling. This is the only thing I ever want to do.”
“For me to even get to that point, that’s the issue. Everyone’s judging the action. They’re not judging the intention behind the action. Corey, you know me. Imagine how much it would take for me to try to leave. So I think that’s the conversation. That’s the hot topic. There’s situations that I can’t publicly discuss, but that’s what I would want to say about that whole issue. The only reason it got to that point was because there was no other option.”
“It’s incredible the things that you’ll do when you’re back is against the wall and you’re fighting for survival. I wouldn’t have done something unless I believed in it, I still stand by that choice. I did what I had to do.”
Mustafa Ali also demands Hall Of Fame stats from WWE. Vince McMahon might also change his mind when it comes to Mustafa Ali’s push. We’ll have to see what the future holds for Ali.
