Mustafa Ali Says He Won’t Tone Himself Down To Be Marketable

Mustafa Ali Says He Won’t Tone Himself Down To Be Marketable WWE

WWE Raw star Mustafa Ali has opened up about embracing himself after previous attempts to make himself ‘more marketable’.

Ali joined WWE in 2016 after competing in the Cruiserweight Classic tournament. He competed on the 205 Live brand before officially being moved to the main roster, on SmackDown.

Bar his recent hiatus, Ali has been wrestling on the main roster for four years.

On Twitter, Ali noted that he plans to be a ‘message’ moving forward. Stating that he’s not going to worry about marketability anymore, Ali wrote:

I’ve always found myself toning down who i am to be more “marketable”…and because of that i find myself trying to find myself.

im pakistani. im indian. im american. im muslim. im mustafa ali.

and im gonna embrace all that. screw being marketable. im gonna be a message.

Ali has been appearing on WWE Raw more since Triple H took over WWE creative, most recently in tag-team action on the August 15 episode, alongside Cedric Alexander.
