Mustafa Ali made his Smackdown Live debut a couple of weeks ago and has had a great run so far. He has impressed the WWE universe with his skills in 205 Live and is now doing the same on Smackdown Live.
On PW Torch SmackDown Post-Show, Wade Keller discussed a recent interaction Ali had with Shelton Benjamin, where Benjamin extended his hand to congratulate Ali backstage, before Ali was attacked from behind by Daniel Bryan.
“I’m assuming that they did that because Shelton Benjamin as a heel is going to end up turning on Ali at some point and then Ali will then move down the card after having beaten Daniel Bryan and Andrade Cien Almas and then feud with Shelton Benjamin? I don’t know, maybe. Or maybe he’ll just beat Shelton Benjamin on TV and then continue his push which I guess would be fine.”
Of course this is pure speculation at this point. However, considering the way WWE has been pairing Ali with top superstars, the company might have big things in store for Ali. We will have to see how Ali is booked.
