Ali has the skills to make it to the highest level in WWE but he would need to be pushed by the officials backstage, many of whom he has already started to impress.
The heart of the matter
Mustafa Ali recently appeared as a guest on the Talk is Jericho podcast where he revealed that Vince McMahon himself recently gave him some helpful advice.
"Vince has always been very positive feedback. I actually met with him a few times to introduce myself and what I represent like, ‘Hey I just want to let you know that this is my background. This is what I think is cool. This is how I think the company can leverage me,’ so I’ve talked to him before, but this was the first time he gave me very specific direction on how he thought I could make money in WWE."
Ali went on to talk about how The Chairman then told him how he would be able to make his money in WWE.
"I came back and he gave me feedback about the promo and this and that and he goes, ‘The one thing I wish you would have changed – you’ve got to remember, a guy like you, you’re always fighting from under. You have this rare quality to get actual empathy from the crowd. That’s so hard nowadays. Nowadays people are whatever. I feel like you have the ability to make them go, ‘Man, he’s really taking a beating.’’ He goes, ‘That’s where you’re gonna make your money,’ and he’s kind of like pointing at my chest when he’s saying that. He goes, ‘That’s how you’re gonna make your money," he said via WrestleZone.
Mustafa Ali is now an established member of the SmackDown locker room so he will continue to rise through the ranks and receive decent feedback from the boss.
