Mustafa Ali has come a long way since his WWE debut. He wasn’t a superstar who had a lot of buzz in the indies such as Cedric Alexander. He was relatively well-known but just not at the same level.

Ali has a lot of potential and it’s clear that WWE recognizes Ali for what he is: a role model. He’s always advocated for positivity and unity, beyond any barriers of nationality, race or religion. His message is inspiring and he’s the right superstar to help represent the company going forward.
