During an interview with “News 14”, Mustafa Ali gave his thoughts on why he believes social media for wrestlers is actually a good thing. Here’s what he had to say:
What’s really cool about social media is people are learning the man or the woman behind the superstar. I think my following, my fan base, they realize what the message is behind all this: why I compete, why I fight with all my heart, why I say the things that I say, why I respond to certain internet trolls the way that I do. And my whole philosophy, my message is, ‘Be the light in the dark.’ There’s plenty of dark times around us. There’s plenty of dark moments around us but it’s on us as a society, as people, as human beings, to be that light. And I think that’s what’s having people flock toward me a bit.
If you watch WWE programming any other programming, a lot of people are elevated by tearing other people down. That’s the way they elevate themselves, by ripping someone down. I’m not about that. So I think it’s kind of a fresh, new way and, to me, it’s the way I’ve lived my entire life.
