In the last few hours, there is nothing but talk of the request for release made by Mustafa Ali to the WWE management, with the Friday Night Smackdown athlete who played for months in the 205 Live and Main Event rings, with his being the leader of the Retribution which unfortunately did not get his career off the ground in the main roster of the Stamford federation, as the management and the athlete himself probably wanted.
With a fairly short statement on his social networks, the athlete confirmed that he had requested his release directly from the top management of the federation, with the athlete who apparently even discussed this with the Chairman himself, Vince McMahon, shortly before making this decision, now apparently final for him.
In the last few hours, new news is also emerging, which speaks of one of the missed plans for Mustafa Ali, which would have led him to have an important match for WrestleMania 37, last year, which was eventually trashed by the federation and which disappointed the wrestler immensely.
What Happened at WrestleMania 37?
Like its previous year's event, WrestleMania 37 was a two-night affair. The event took place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, and was the company's first pay-per-view with fans present since early 2020.
After a lot of speculation, WWE finally confirmed the opening match of WrestleMania 37 Night One. In his latest interview with the Metro newspaper, former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston wanted to talk about the plans that initially existed in WWE for Wrestlemania 37, with a first match that saw Kofi himself go to fight 1 vs 1 against Mustafa Ai, then turned instead into a tag team match between Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods vs AJ Styles and Omos.
In his speech to the microphones of Metro, Kofi said: "It was perfect! It was already written, you didn't even have to go out there and create something new or different, it was perfect! But in the end, it wasn't the direction the offices took, I think, they didn't want to believe it.
I was told a few things and in the end, we started other plans, as we had been told and all of a sudden nothing was done. This is kind of a standard rate for us, something that happens very often." The WWE title match between Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley opened the show.
