I'm going to pour one out in honor of thread staple Tenor Reaper for that one. I think she was a fan along with SW

From what I read I got the impression that Vince asked him to do something racist and/or anti-Muslim. Good on him for saying no and walking away. He's really good and I'd love to see him get some actual opportunities somewhere else.

The other piece of news out there is that not only is there a Saudi show next month (which we knew), but it's officially going to be the Elimination Chamber show as well.

I don't see how much worse they could have done than having him lead Retribution while the country was burning.

Maybe he can be Ali Impact now

I want 2 things for RAW and I'll be happy if one comes true

1. Bobby getting physical with Brock
2. Alexa not continuing with that stupid ass gimmick.

I mean... asking him to do something to disparage his culture and/or religion (which as far as I can tell he takes pretty seriously) would've been way worse than leading a bad stable, especially considering he wasn't even involved with that stable until well after most of the civil unrest has calmed down.

You're expecting Brock to work on network tv?  Isn't that 3 million per bump?

1. maybe
2. what're you talkin about, pal? That's good shiat!

In seriousness though, based on last week's segment they could be going in one of two directions with her:

-the therapy is an angle to gradually ween her out of the gimmick and into something else. Maybe less supernatural but still "disturbed", and they're doing it this way to better preserve continuity
-..or they're gonna lean even harder into it

The last time he was on TV gave a hint at what was planned for him. He then requested paternity leave, but was supposed to be back soon after. He posted a video of a promo that showed where he wanted to take the character (perhaps as a way to salvage what Vince was giving him in a way that was acceptable to him), but Vince apparently shot it down.

Yeah, I figured it was tied to that as well - Mohammed Hassan v2.0. I think Ali wanted to try to do it as that gimmick was originally designed (which I've always argued was a really good idea that WWE had no chance at presenting correctly) while Vince wanted him to go more the route of how Hassan was towards the end of his run.

Ali probably wanted to go the "you hate me because of my background, but I'm American just like you and I'll prove it" route while Vince wanted him to go the "DEATH TO INFIDELS" route.

natural316: The Bestest: so.. Mustafi Ali has very publicly requested his release...

Two things that became apparent this year.

WWE is a business above being a wrestling promotion.  The wheels will keep moving

And AEW is not the saving grace marks think it is.  I can't think of 1 talent that has gone to AEW that has moved up the card from when they were in WWE.

Agree to Disagree.

Adam Cole was a champ, and is now doing whatever with the Young Bucks and The best Friends

Cody went the "Jeff Jarrett" route and created his own promotion, and made himself TNT champ

Malakai Black is still floating around the midcard, although I like his gear and am intrigued by his team with Brody King

Moxley was a Champ in WWE and before his rehab was just enjoying walking out to "Wild Thing" doing death matches and jumping between fueds
