Mustafa Ali Says He’ll See Fans In Two and a Half Years

Feb 12, 2022 - by James Walsh

Mustafa Ali seems to think he’ll be out of in-ring action for the foreseeable future. In a post on Twitter, Ali sent out a message to fans suggesting they might not see him for years.

He wrote: “I’ll see ya all in like 2 1/2 years.”

It’s unknown if that is a reference to the end of his contract or not, but it seems likely. If so, that would mean that Ali would be done around the end of 2024. Ali asked for his release from the company last month, but so far it hasn’t been granted. The recent rumors suggest that WWE has no plans to let free Ali, but they also haven’t used him on television, either.

    Sounds great to stay at home and get paid…but in the wrestling/entertainment world, being out of action is the kiss of death. Why else did so many wrestlers before him work with injuries? Because they were afraid to lose their spot and end up at the bottom of the card. Or worse, be forgotten.

    WWE let almost 100 people go last year because of ‘budget cuts’ yet, if what’s suggested above, is true, they’ll pay someone who doesn’t wanna work there to sit at home. THEY know being out of action is probably gonna hurt this guy in the long run. He should just bad mouth the WWE on social media (or any media) until they let him go.

    @Sonia I get that, but we also don’t know what his guarantee is. Might not be great, especially after taxes as a 1099. Just because they’re not using him doesn’t mean he isn’t expected to show up either, so those expenses occur.
