What even is this thread lol?

Lol


Mustafah Ali is just as inappropriate in the main event as Balor imo because of little and bland he is.

I think Vince respects him backstage because he isn't a yes man and challenges things, but does it maturely and not by protesting, crying on the floor of a locker room kicking and screaming. I believe the reason he isn't playing an anti American esque heel like Jinder or Daivari is because of his temperment and unexpected confidence.

He's not the type of wrestler I usually get behind but of all the cookie cutter underdog vanilla midgets currently on the roster, he does stand out and makes me believe in him a bit. So far, I find he is much more intriguing off camera than as a character.

It's a holdover from wrestling trying to be actual real competition, where weighing in is extremely important and even a few pounds of difference can sway an entire fight.

In wrestling it's nonsense and completely and totally irrelevant. The majority of competitors are at minimum separated by ten pounds.

I think billed weights in wrestling is more of an exaggeration to aid suspension of disbelief and to get people to believe that it is true. Considering they are portraying characters or versions of themselves with the volume turned way up, it makes sense to have this. They've been doing this for a long time iirc. I see nothing wrong with it, and if people really cared about the actual weight then they may have to look it up further for that kind of information.

Re: There’s no way Ali is 182 lbs.

205 Live weights are legit. For some dumb ass reason they actually weigh them.
I dunno dude, it still does feel like at least of some of them are still embellished.

For example, Tozawa is billed at 5'7, 156lbs. First off, pretty sure he's a bit shorter than 5'7, making him around my height. I'm a bit big for my height, at 165lbs. I can't imagine Tozawa as skinny as he is, and at my height is less than 10lbs lighter than me.

Even if they weigh them, it’s not hard to fiddle with scales.

Billed heights and weights should be taken with a grain of salt.

Specifically for Ali, and the OP, I don’t know how tall he is, he doesn’t need to cut weight for a weigh in, I don’t see any reason why he couldn’t be the weight you suggested

What do you think his real weight is? He has to be at least 155. I’m tiny and I’m still psychically bigger than that guy.

Ali weighed 182 for cwc and tozawa 156

Both step on scales one after the other about 2 minutes 35
