There has been a lot of speculation about why Mustafa Ali has been off television and how he would return.
On this week’s Raw, that speculation was put to bed as Ali returned as a surprise partner for Ricochet and Cedric Alexander to face MVP, Bobby Lashley & Shelton Benjamin.
Ali, who has not been on television since being a member of Team Smackdown at November’s Survivor Series, has been rumoured to return for some time.
In his absence, his WWE.com profile had been moved to Raw and back to Smackdown. He was also considered the front runner for the role Smackdown’s hacker in an angle that has now seemingly been dropped.
