A brief history of Mustafa Ali’s WWE career
After an impressive showing at the Cruiserweight Classic tournament, Mustafa Ali signed a full-time contract with WWE. Ali was one of the several superstars who were part of the 205 Live roster. Some of the notable matches of Mustafa Ali on 205 Live are between Hideo Itami, Lince Dorado and Buddy Murphy.
Mustafa Ali made his main roster debut in 2017 on an episode of RAW as part of the cruiserweight division. Ali did not see much success during RAW. WWE focussed majorly on the heavyweights. The superstars of the cruiserweight division did not get enough time nor freedom on the main roster when compared to 205 Live.
Mustafa Ali’s short period of success was during his time on SmackDown. In late 2018, Daniel Bryan became the WWE Champion. Bryan considered himself as the A+ Player and that everyone else was beneath him. Ali was slowly being built to be the underdog baby-face to dethrone Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 34. During the build towards Ali’s big WrestleMania moment, he had a small feud with Randy Orton. Ali got injured during one of their matches and put him out of action for a few months. This injury put a halt to Ali’s rise to the top. Kofi Kingston replaced Ali and allowed Kofi to win the WWE title.
Ali returned only to join the mid-card yet again. He formed the group called ‘Retribution’. The group was a laughing stock among fans and WWE creative simultaneously. The group was disbanded after an emphatic failure to succeed. Most of the members of the group were released from the company and now Mustafa Ali also has asked for his release.
