Potential Spoiler On WWE Star Set For Big Spotlight On May 15 Raw WWE

The WWE Draft is now in the books, with many WWE stars finding their footing on their new brands, including some names who are currently ‘free agents’.

One of those free agents is Mustafa Ali, who appeared on last week’s episode of Raw despite his free agent status, picking up a win over Otis.

Ali’s win seemingly came as a surprise, though perhaps it shouldn’t have, as it was reported by WRKD Wrestling prior to WrestleMania that Ali would be getting a ‘bigger spotlight’ following WrestleMania.

In an update from that post, WRKD responded to their report from March today, simply stating:

Something to keep in mind during tonight’s #WWERaw.

It is not known exactly what this spotlight would entail, but there will be a Battle Royal to determine the next contender for Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship on tonight’s show, so perhaps Ali could pick up the upset win there.

Tonight’s show will also feature appearances from Cody Rhodes and Becky Lynch, addressing their attacks from Brock Lesnar and Trish Stratus respectively from last week’s show.

Here are results from the Friday, May 12 episode of WWE SmackDown:

AJ Styles def. Edge, Rey Mysterio in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament
