Mustafa Ali on making it to WWE

USA Today is featuring an interview with Mustafa Ali where he talks about signing with WWE and how it took him 16 years to accomplish it.

“We always hear about the musician, or the actor, or the wrestler, and how they’ve decided this is what they’re going to do with their lives. And they quit their jobs, and they jump in their car, they move to wherever, and they struggle and live out of their car, but they’re going to make it by any means, you know? And then they turn into a huge success. We always hear about these stories, but what we don’t hear about is the people who don’t succeed. We don’t hear about the people who are still living in their car.

“It took me 16 years to get to the WWE. And the reason for that is that I did it — I don’t want to call it the responsible way, but I’m going to call it the responsible way. I went to school, I worked multiple jobs, and yeah, I chased my dream. I was working Friday, Saturday, Sunday nights at independent shows, but when those shows would end I’d go straight to a midnight shift as a police officer, and I’d work till eight o’clock in the morning. Then I’d sleep for a couple of hours, and I’d repeat it all over again. So I’d miss out on birthday, hanging out with friends, and all that stuff, but I chased my dream responsibly. And yeah, it took me longer to get here than a lot of other people, but the thing is I got here knowing that if it didn’t work out, I had something to fall back on. I had two degrees. I had a law enforcement background. I was an educated man who had real work-life experience.”
