A WWE Raw star has addressed his lack of TV time and not being able to properly tell the story he’s trying to get across.
Everyone knows that the booking of RETRIBUTION has been abysmal, but Mustafa Ali being revealed as the leader seemed to breathe some life into the faction.
Speaking with TVInsider, Ali spoke about how he wishes he and the group had more time to explain things instead of leaving fans to connect the dots, saying:
“The talent is there. The biggest obstacle and challenge the group faces is the ‘Why’. Who are we? Why are we here? What’s our vendetta against WWE and corporate infrastructure? We have not been able to tell that story. RETRIBUTION is still an opportunity to be on TV every week. We’ve done stuff, and everyone is aware who is in the group. But we’re not able to address who we really are. I haven’t explained why I’m the leader and what power I hold over these people. I’d like to do so. The fans have been left to connect the dots, which I never like to do. It’s a three-hour show. Stuffing 5,000 pounds into a five-pound bag isn’t going to work. We have to take our time. We’re doing the best with the time we’re given.
Ali has had some mic time recently on Raw Talk to get some of his points across. He added:
“It’s the most fun because that is 100% me. It’s just off the top of my head. The last show I didn’t know I was a guest until minutes before and it was probably one of my better appearances. Sami Zayn told me a true artist is able to work within parameters. It’s not hard to have amazing matches when you have 25 minutes. Now, try to have a super-competitive match in six minutes, and 60 seconds to get your point across in a promo. That’s true artistry.”
Ali challenges Riddle for the United States Championship on tomorrow’s episode of Raw.
