Current Star Reveals He Was Almost Given Hulk Hogan WWE Entrance Music WWE

WWE free-agent Mustafa Ali has revealed that at one point, he was almost given Hulk Hogan’s Real American entrance music.

Hogan’s walk-out music was one of the most iconic wrestling themes of all time.

Speaking with Sportskeeda, Mustafa Ali revealed that there were serious discussions about him using Hogan’s theme for his nixed ‘New America’ character.

Recalling talks, Ali said:

“With the Real American, Hulk Hogan’s old theme music, yeah, that was an actual discussion I had. At one point, that was gonna be my entrance music.

“The reason for that is a few years ago we were laying the groundwork for me to do this politician-esque character.

“There wasn’t going to be anything political-specific about this character. He was just presented as a politician.” 

In November 2021 Ali shared a scrapped vignette for his New American character, which quickly went viral.

Explaining the concept of the gimmick, Ali said:

“He was quick-witted, sly talker, but kinda sleazy, podium, press secretary, secret service, and I was always saying things and making promises that I would never fulfil, kinda like politicians do nowadays sometimes, right?

“It was just more of a tongue-in-cheek kind of another way to show some layers to my character.”

Following the WWE Draft, Ali is now a free agent, so can compete for either Raw or SmackDown.
