Mustafa Ali on gesture from The Rock: “It means something”

Last updated

WWE Superstar Mustafa Ali recently revealed how he met Hollywood megastar and former WWE name The Rock backstage at a WWE event.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Ali revealed that he met The Great One during his time in the WWE Cruiserweight division, saying that he was actually just trying to stay out of his way.

‘The Rock was at RAW to do some filming for the ’˜Fighting With My Family’ movie. At the time, I was part of the cruiserweight division, and we all pretty much knew to ’˜stay out of the way'” Ali began.

“The Rock was walking by with a camera crew and was obviously busy, talking to multiple people about the upcoming shoot” Ali continued.

“He walks by all the cruisers, who are pretty much posted up against the wall to not be in his way. He stops, does a 180 and says hello to all of us. Shook everyone’s hand.

“Now, saying hello shouldn’t be a big deal, but when you’re brand-new and one of the biggest stars in the world treats you as a peer, it means something” the former WWE Cruiserweight concluded.
