News broke earlier this month that Ali had a heated argument with Vince McMahon after a pitch was made for "something Mustafa Ali would have never done."

It's unclear what the pitch was but prior to his removal from WWE TV, Ali's "New America" storyline was scrapped and he hasn't been mentioned on television since November. Ali has publicly stated that his "New America" storyline was scrapped apparently because it was deemed too controversial.
