Mustafa Ali: “I’m Going To Become The Greatest X-Division Champion Of All Time

Mustafa Ali debuted with TNA at their LIVE No Surrender PLE after hitting free agency in January.

Ali’s schedule was quickly filling up, and then we saw a vignette that he would be showing up in TNA and many fans were very happy.

While speaking on 5 Questions With The Mini Host, Ali was asked about what it meant to become the X-Division Champion.

“Another surreal moment because the X Division title meant so much to guys like me, junior heavyweights. You get to see guys like AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, the Motor City Machine Guns, Amazing Red, guys that I now get to share the ring with as well in the future. So to hold that championship, what a prestigious championship, the lineage with it. I’d say I’m going to go ahead and become the greatest X-Division champion of all time, but that’s me being humble when I say it, obviously. But it is a privilege and an honor to hold such a prestigious championship.”

H/T Corey Brennan from Fightful.

Full interview:

Ali is now scheduled to defend his X Division Title against Jake Something at the LIVE TNA Rebellion PPV on 4/20 after Jake overcame five other opponents last week to earn his shot.

Will Ali continue on his quest to be “the greatest X Division champion of all time”, or will Jake finally claim his spot at the top of the division and refine the traditional boundaries of the X division?

We’ll have to tune in to find out.
