WWE Star Shares Pitch For New Show WWE

Mustafa Ali has discussed his plans for a potential Intercontinental Championship ahead of his huge title bout.

On the May 15 edition of Raw, Ali won a battle royal to earn a shot at GUNTHER’s Intercontinental Title.

Ali will challenge for GUNTHER’s gold at the May 27 Night of Champions event.

Speaking on WWE The Bump, Ali noted that if he wins the title, he’ll defend it on Raw, SmackDown and NXT.

Teasing that he wants the Intercontinental Title to be the focal point of its own WWE show on Wednesday nights, Ali said:

“The reign of positivity man! It’s gonna be the free agent, the Intercontinental Champion, going to Raw, going to SmackDown, I mean the people have been saying they want me at NXT.

“I don’t know, maybe I’ll just go around and this Intercontinental Championship goes back to what it was meant to be.

“I know Gunther, he gave an honest effort, he’s been trying to restore honor back into a ring and I just think he’s been a big bully.

“I think he’s been protecting the Championship, I don’t think he defends it as much as he should but don’t worry, with me as the Intercontinental Champion, I’ll be defending that on Monday, on Friday, on Tuesdays, I don’t know if we ever gonna have a show on Wednesdays soon, maybe we just make a show just for me on Wednesdays.

“But that’s what’s gonna happen. The Intercontinental Championship is now going to equal opportunity. I’ll be calling out Dolph Ziggler, I’ll be calling Apollo (Crews), Ricochet, I’ll go down to NXT with Carmelo Hayes.

“It doesn’t matter, the Intercontinental Championship is gonna go back to what it’s supposed to be, this exciting competitive field, not Gunther defending it here and there, no. But he did a good job, I mean, I’ll think of him.”

This comes after WWE President Nick Khan noted that he’d ideally like for WWE to produce shows on every weekday.

Khan also indicated that there have been ‘internal discussions’ about a potential WWE lucha libre show, which you can read more about right here.
