Raw Star Defends WWE Celebrity Matches After WrestleMania WWE

Raw star Mustafa Ali has now defended WWE for recent celebrity involvement, calling it a staple of the business.

WWE celebrity matches have changed significantly in the last few years, with Bad Bunny and Logan Paul wrestling competitive matches during their debut bouts at WrestleMania 37 and 38 respectively.

Logan Paul especially has exceeded expectations in the year he’s been an active competitor, with the WWE signee notably challenging for Roman Reigns WWE Undisputed Universal Championship  in an almost 25 minute match at Crown Jewel 2022.

Paul last wrestled during WrestleMania 39 Saturday, competing in a prominent match against Seth Rollins.

The influencer having such a high-profile match at WrestleMania once again sparked the debate about whether or not celebrities deserve marque matches at major events, with some arguing that these spots should be reserved for the talent who compete all year long.

During a Twitter Q&A session, Ali was asked about ‘outsiders’ coming into WWE.

Ali pointed to the first WrestleMania event in 1985 to prove that WWE celebrity appearances are nothing new.

The Raw star tweeted:

it’s been a staple of the business since the beginning. look at the first WrestleMania. more eyes means more money.

Ali also recently addressed the idea that he deserves better in WWE. You can read his response right here.
