Mustafa Ali was set for a big push earlier this year before WrestleMania. The WWE had to scrap those plans as Ali got injured before WrestleMania and had to take time off. Kofi Kingston was the one that received the push and went on to face Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35.
He became the WWE Champion after beating Bryan. It appears as though the WWE has not forgotten Ali. He was in a video that the WWE released recently. in the video he was seen talking to Shinsuke Nakamura, who is the current WWE Intercontinental Champion.
The WWE could be setting up a new feud between these two. A dark match took place just before the WWE Smackdown event took place. It was held in the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. Heavy Machinery took on The B team and were able to beat them using The Compactor.
Otis and Caterpillar were super over with the crowd according to reports. The WWE is probably going to go ahead with Randy Orton vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE title at some point. This week, they posted a new title feud involving these two people.
Orton, Samoa Joe and Elias were able to beat The New Day in a six-man action match. Kofi was pinned by Randy Orton and that is how the match finished. Randy Orton is still one of WWE’s top talents.
