Re: How Do You Get "Ali" Over?
Have him just straight-up pick a fight with Brock Lesnar.
Not saying have him have a feud with him, or even have a match with him. Just pick a fight with the Beast. Square up to him, get his arse handed to him but refuse to stay down. Do it multiple times. Every time Lesnar shows up, there's Ali. Maybe have him cost Lesnar a MITB cash-in chance. Not cost him the briefcase but just screw him once.
Like have Rollins beaten down by Corbin or something. Lesnar's music hits, he runs out. But as he's being a smug bitch and before the bell rings have Ali appear and swipe the briefcase, distracting Lesnar long enough for Rollins to recover and superkick the fucker so he can't cash in.
As SmackDown proved Ali is gold with the crowd during babyface in peril booking. So use that to his advantage, give him the exposure of standing up the guy who WWE books as the biggest badass in WWE history, and play on the annoyance of Lesnar robbing him of his biggest opportunity at Money in the Bank.
