I mean, the gimmick was technically exploiting xenophobia following a terrorist attack where a lot of people died. It was less that the gimmick was too hard for wimpy people and more that it was in poor taste in a lot of ways.

No he wasn't but he deserved more than what he got. Could have been a solid upper mid card act for years. WWE as a product really stunk during the Cena years.

He had something but we'll never know if the potential would turn into stars

He had the incredible good fortune of not being around long enough to provide 3MB with a 4th member.

Re: Would you say Mohammed Hassan was one of the greatest heels of all time?

Gonna upset some millennial fans but no, he wouldn't even make my top 20 he was very over rated by today's standards, hell I think he was over rated even back then. He got good heat it's true, anyone that is from another nationality and is a heel can get that pretty well with American audiences.

I am not sure where the love for Muhammad Hassan even comes from, I can only assume that most of the people that like Mohammad grew up around that time. For me he was a paint by number foreign heel, a more successful version of Tiger Ali Singh in my opinion.

Don't think I am ragging on him either, I liked Muhammad Hassan and I do wish he stayed longer, I just don't put him on the pedestal some of you people do. One of the better heels of 2005 sure. Of all time? No.

It's like making the case for Wade Barrett being one of the greatest heels of all time because he got a lot of heat in 2010

People today aren't used to "I hate that guy" heat that isn't aimed at the corporate-handpicked-chosen-ones,

The wrestling part I didn't care for. His character though, that was awesome.

For me, he did nothing, since I'm not American. I can appreciate his work, but he's no where near the top.
The character had more depth than that. He was criticizing the real prejudice that exists against Muslims in America. Watch his early vignettes and promos, there is real depth to the character.

However the "terrorist" shit at the end was awful writing and killed whole gimmick.

No. And I find the monthly "Mohammad Hassan" threads to be ridiculous. If anything the guy is extremely OVERRATED. Sick of hearing about him. How can he be underrated if this same thread pops up every month?

He was average
