WWE officials have decided to move a certain star to the Raw brand and that’s Mustafa Ali.
Pwinsider.com reported on Wednesday Ali has been quietly shifted to the Raw brand. It should be noted that Ali isn’t listed as a Raw superstar yet on WWE.com. That’ll likely change soon.
This comes during an interesting time for Ali, who recently took to social media to let fans know that he wasn’t happy with the way that he was used on Friday Night SmackDown.
You can see the tweet in which Ali voiced his frustration here.
For several weeks, WWE had been doing a hacker angle on Friday Night SmackDown. Although the identity of the superstar behind the hacker gimmick was never revealed, it was widely assumed that Ali was the hacker. WWE hasn’t aired any of the videos connected to the hacker in recent weeks, which has made fans think the company decided to drop the angle.
Ali hasn’t worked a match since February 7th, which was a dark match at a SmackDown TV event where he went over Drew Gulak.
While Ali could get a renewed push on Raw, it should be noted that he won’t be working with Paul Heyman as the advocate of Brock Lesnar was recently removed from the role of being the Executive Director of the red brand.
Bruce Prichard as taken over the role in addition to remaining as the Executive Director of SmackDown.
