WWE Superstar Ali recently appeared on the WWE podcast After The Bell w/Corey Graves. The Retribution leader talked about a number of topics on the show, including his run on 205 Live.
As well as discussing how the show struggling going on after SmackDown most weeks, he also talked about how 205 Live needed a major star to get ahead.
“Here’s the thing, going on after SmackDown? It was the equivalent to an opening band going on after Metallica. No one’s there to see them.”
“If you gave us Rey Mysterio? You could put 205 Live on his back. He can create this brand because there’s immediate interest in Rey, therefore there’s interest in the show. And now you put Buddy Murphy against Rey? Now you’re building Buddy. Then once buddy is established? You put me in. Like, there’s a process [you usually follow].”
