As we spoiled earlier today, Mustafa Ali has revealed himself to be the mystery hacker from WWE SmackDown.
Retribution later appeared in a backstage segment where leader Ali revealed that he was behind the SmackDown mystery hacker angle from earlier in the summer, which was dropped out of nowhere. Ali was heavily rumored to be the man behind he gimmick before it was dropped.
Ali talked about how he can make chaos with just a cell phone, a secret and one click, with that he can make anyone’s world come crumbling down. He said while sitting at home earlier this year, because WWE doesn’t know how to make money off someone with his name, he watched every corrupt Superstar and learned all of their “pathetic little secrets.” He confessed to being the mystery SmackDown hacker and said he did it because he wanted the world to know that this sick place, WWE, is infecting everyone with greed and corruption. He went on and said because of that, good and talented individuals, like the members of Retribution, are being forgotten and abandoned, while their dreams are being left to die. Ali said he found those individuals, united them and promised them that their truths will be heard. He then warned that anyone who tries to stop the truth from being heard will be shut down by Retribution, whether it’s The Fiend, The Hurt Business or anyone else on RAW.
There’s no word yet on where WWE will go next with the Retribution storyline now that they lost clean to The Hurt Business on tonight’s RAW, and then were taken out by The Fiend working alone.
