On Mustafa Ali breaking the mold of the traditional WWE Superstar:
MF: I don’t think it takes a progressive mind to think it’s positive for WWE to have a guy of middle eastern descent as a babyface. It’s great and it’s a long time coming. I retweet a lot of his stuff. I find him very interesting on social media. Some of the stuff he says is really touching. Some people have a knack for producing interesting tweets and I think he does. He’s just a guy working hard, living out a dream, loving his family and of middle eastern descent. I think it’s great and I like him personally.
On if he has issues with the body Alexa Bliss body shamming Nia Jax as part of the build to their WrestleMania match:
MF: Heels are bullies! (Laughs) You can’t be saying, “Oh, come on, she’s not such a bad girl!” Alexa is an awful… I want to be quoted… she does a great job at being an awful heel. I think she’s a great heel and I think that should be open territory. The same way that The Rock can make fun of my body, you can’t take away every tool from a heel’s arsenal. I liked when Alexa was working with Mickie. I thought that was a really effective storyline that makes people angry and sit up and take notice. It makes them feel for Nia and I think that’s a good thing. I hear all the time, “What happened to Be A Star?” Or, “What happened to tolerance?” It’s like, we’re characters, we can’t have a show called “Big Guys Getting Along Making Points”. You have to have a reason for them to go in to the ring and I think they have given us that reason.
