Paul Heyman has lavished praise on Mustafa Ali and thinks he is going to be a “sensation” because he brings something different to the table in WWE.
Paul Heyman’s eye for talent is perhaps second to none given the future stars that walked through the doors of ECW and the array of champions that Heyman has stood beside in his illustrious career. The current Special Counsel to The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns may have his hands full with the WWE Universal Champion but another WWE Superstar has definitely caught Heyman’s eye.
Heyman was talking to BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani about a range of subjects when he singled out Mustafa Ali, saying the star’s differences are what’s going to help take him to the top of WWE:
“Look at Mustafa Ali. Mustafa Ali is one of the foremost talents in WWE. Why? Because he constantly pushes against boundaries. He is going to be a sensation. One day or the next, he’s going to be. Why? Because he’s not held the convention, he’s not held the ‘what’s been done already.’ He looks and he says, ‘This is what I can do in the next 36 months and nobody else is doing it.’ We need more people like that.”
Mustafa Ali recently released a promo on social media that would have backed up his recent comments about being disliked by the WWE Universe because of his name. That storyline appears to have been dropped but would have seen Ali take on a politician-type role as he campaigned for a New America.
