Ali has had a very stop-start career in WWE, at one point being ear-marked for a WWE Championship program with Daniel Bryan.
Despite being one of the best in-ring performers in the company, Ali has been given nothing meaningful to work with.
And the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion has outright stated that he is happy to sit out his contract if it means he can go work elsewhere in the future. All that might change this week.
While it must be noted that the backstage updates must always be taken with a grain of salt, if this is true, it might inject RAW with the jolt of energy it desperately needs.
