Mustafa Ali was a unique addition to the WWE at the time he made his debut. He instantly showcased his athletic abilities and quickness inside the ring. Throughout his career, he gained huge popularity for taking high-flying risks with his exquisite wrestling style.
Now that he has been released by the WWE, a layer of throwback moments have erupted all over the internet regarding Ali’s career. Many people have shared some of his best matches with the likes of Buddy Murphy and Randy Orton. While some of the fans have also shared some of his career highlights, showcasing his most popular moments,
One of the videos surfacing online since Ali’s departure features his confrontation with Brock Lesnar backstage. It shows that Ali is fully determined to win the Intercontinental Championship from Gunther in the upcoming PLE. Brock Lesnar appears on the camera and yells at Ali quoting, ‘Get a Life, Kid!’. Fans are getting quite furious with the promo after Ali’s release calling it a burial of Ali’s whole career.

The promo itself is tough to watch as Brock interrupts Ali which causes him to move giving Lesnar the spotlight. Some of the audience also called out how WWE portrayed Ali and how he was always degraded in the company.
What’s next for Mustafa Ali after WWE?
Mustafa Ali was undoubtedly a technically gifted wrestler and did have some tremendous matches and rivalries in WWE. His match with Randy Orton displayed his technical prowess which made even Orton pat his back.
After his unfortunate release, it is quite unsure as to where he will finally end up. With Ali’s skills and charisma, he needs a strong promotion which will enhance him even more.
No longer*. Sorry for the confusion.

The most possible direction for Ali might be AEW. There is a huge speculation that he might make his debut at AEW and confront the legendary Daniel Bryan.
They have a lot of history between them, as Ali was originally scheduled to beat Bryan at WrestleMania 35 for the WWE Championship. His big moment was halted because of an injury, but he could relive that match and create magic inside the ring with Bryan at AEW.
It’s crazy how Mustafa Ali was originally supposed to beat Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35, but ended up getting hurt.
Then we ended up getting KofiMania instead where Kofi ended up beating Daniel to win the WWE Championship
