He's already the new Reigns: people won't accept him as a face, and you can't turn him heel (because of the Saudis). The only way he can be saved is if you ghost him for a couple years until fans forget, and then build him up very slowly.
This is not about racism. He cannot get over as face, because he symbolises WWE`s sellout to the Saudis, incl. no women matches etc.
Also, the Saudi deal goes like 10 year, his whole career will be build on the contract with the Saudis. Except they replace him with another Saudi.

Many fans will never take this guy serious as wrestler, doesn`t matter how good or bad he is.

I agree with what he represents is not babyface, but on social media people were saying racist shit, maybe that won't be a widespread thing if he gets pushed but I can't believe that given the current state of AmeriKKKa.

That sucks. Too bad, this door was opened already last year by WWE themself with this political ANTI-Iran thing in a PPV, where the "iranian" wrestlers got a lot of threats from Saudis.

Yikes.

I honestly originally thought that's what they were going to do with Mustafa Ali, have him be an evil Muslim. Still kinda shocked that he's getting a solid push as a pure babyface.

With all the money Saudi Arabia has given wwe is it too far fetched to think they may have sent over a talent or two to be trained in exchange?

Again I'm sorry at how ignorant this may come off. Im not trying to bash the guy, it just seems like he came out of nowhere. I'm not saying the guy isn't good. He actually impressed me a great deal on nxt. It's rare to see someone do something you haven't seen before that doesn't look too dangerous.
I don't think there's any relation to the royals, he grew up in California and worked some of the smaller indies like Hoodslam and APW before going to WWE.

Re: Mansoor

A star? LOL In what world? He won't be a star but I can see him being a lower mid carder or something. He just has zero star power, charisma. Nothing about him screams star.

Re: Mansoor

I actually loved it when he won the battle royal and actually got a decent crowd response in Saudi. The kid has potential and has impressed me with that performance alone. Don't just right him off just yet people. You never know what is going to happen with him. No one thought Ali would hang with main event talent and he did.

I think he would be better off going to 205 live

Hearing shit like this makes me an instant fan of Mansoor tbh. As irrational as that may seem
