There is an interesting name backstage at the Performance Center for the Monday Night Raw tapings.
PWInsider is reporting that Mustafa Ali was at the tapings, which could mean that he is being brought back to television. Ali hasn’t wrestled on live events since February and he hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since early January.
Ali was quietly moved to Raw a few weeks ago. Prior to that, there was heavy speculation that he was the mystery person featured in the hacker storyline that was playing out on SmackDown. That angle appears to have been dropped because there have been no hacker videos on SmackDown in many weeks.
As noted earlier, the Raw tapings were delayed but the show was taped later in the afternoon. WWE will also tape Friday’s episode of SmackDown this evening and tomorrow they will tape next week’s episode of Raw and SmackDown.
