Mustafa Ali: A Night Like WWE Raw Legends Night Is Exactly What Is Wrong With This Company

Mustafa Ali wasn't thrilled with not having a role on WWE Raw Legends Night.

Throughout Raw, WWE showcased legends of the past such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, The Big Show, Torrie Wilson, and more. Meanwhile, current acts like Mustafa Ali, RETRIBUTION and Ricochet, who have been in a weekly feud, were not on the show.

This didn't sit well with Ali, who joined Raw Talk to vent his frustrations.

"I am agitated. I'm angry, but most of all, I'm confused. We dedicated a three-hour show to old has-beens. You want to call them legends or whatever...they've had their time. A night like tonight is exactly what is wrong with this company. Three hours to guys that can barely walk. I am not bewildered. I know that the generation before me paved the way, but when the hell are you going to let me walk on that path? Guys like Drew Gulak, Akira Tozawa, guys like myself, all of RETRIBUTION, not on the show. Why? Because we need to hear 'Whatcha gonna do brother?' AGAIN! For the seventh million time. They pumped the cheers real good. Why don't you give us a chance? People who can contribute to this business and further this company. No, let's push them all aside and give three hours to people that can barely walk. They carved a path, when do I get to walk on that path? For anyone who doesn't understand what I'm saying, it's not because I'm talking fast, it's because you're listening slow. This place needs change and I am that change," he stated.

WWE Raw Legends Night ended with Goldberg challenging Drew McIntyre for a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble.
