Mustafa Ali recalls his experience with Vince McMahon

During a recent interview with Metro, he recalled his experience of talking with Vince McMahon in his office about his on-screen performance. He explained, even before the pandemic, he attempted to maintain his television presence. After spending seven months, he returned to RAW.

Further, he stated that his in-ring performance was lagging somewhere so to address that he went to Vince’s office. He said,” I went up to Vince McMahon himself and said, ‘What am I missing?’ [He said], ‘Too polished, too clean, too nice, I don’t know if you have it in you!’”

Vince’s words fired Ali. He asked Vince to put him on the main event where he could slowly turn himself into a heel through his matches. He said, “I’ll still be presented as a babyface, I’ll still come out with the same look, I’ll still shake the guy’s hand at the end of the matches,” Ali said in his pitch to McMahon.

“But there’s a moment in the match where I’ve just had enough. And I did it! If you go back and watch these Main Event matches before I was revealed as the leader of RETRIBUTION, those were actually me auditioning to turn heel.”

During the time of Retribution, Ali proved to be the heel. A year before, he revealed himself as the leader of Retribution.
