Paul Heyman Heaps Praise On SmackDown Star

Paul Heyman

Paul Heyman has been effusive in his praise of a certain SmackDown star, commenting that they are going to become a “sensation.”

During his more than three decades in the wrestling industry it’s fair to say that Paul Heyman has developed quite the eye for talent. On-screen he had played a significant role in the careers of the likes of Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns and CM Punk, while numerous other stars credit him with helping them fulfil their potential.

Always on the lookout for the next big thing, Heyman sat down with BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani. During the conversation the former ECW boss heaped praised on Mustafa Ali, describing him as one of WWE foremost talents.

“Look at Mustafa Ali. Mustafa Ali is one of the foremost talents in WWE. Why? Because he constantly pushes against boundaries. He is going to be a sensation. One day or the next, he’s going to be. Why? Because he’s not held the convention, he’s not held the ‘what’s been done already.’ He looks and he says, ‘This is what I can do in the next 36 months and nobody else is doing it.’ We need more people like that.”

High-flying Superstar Mustafa Ali made his first appearance in a WWE ring back in the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016, going on to wrestle in NXT before heading to 205! Live.

Despite being unable to capture the Cruiserweight Championship Ali moved to the main roster in December 2018. He later appeared as the leader of RETRIBUTION before the faction folded in early 2021. As part of the 2021 WWE Draft Mustafa Ali was drafted from Raw to SmackDown.
