In an interview with Pancakes and Powerslams (via Wrestling Inc), Shawn Daivari said that Mustafa Ali should win the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble match, as it would make him into a new star for WWE.

He said: ““It’d be awesome if Mustafa Ali won. Mustafa Ali would win it, and at first, I think fans would be like, ‘What? This guy? Are you serious?’ But then, as the story unfolds going toward WrestleMania, I think he would be the most engaging story. The way I see it, in a beautiful situation, I would love to see Mustafa Ali win the Royal Rumble and go to WrestleMania. And the finish of [the WrestleMania] match wouldn’t even matter at that point. Like, by the time Mustafa Ali gets to WrestleMania, he’s a made star, win, lose, or draw. Daniel Bryan has a new opponent. When you’re super over like Daniel Bryan is, it’s hard to find [a] new opponent. That’s what people have a hard time understanding. You’re a victim of your own success. If you’re super popular, it’s hard. Either way, super popular as a heel, or super popular as a babyface, when you’re popular, it’s hard to find new opponents. Those champions who are kind of lukewarm are the best ones, because you can mash them with anybody. But when you’ve got a champion who is super popular in either direction, heel or babyface, they’re really hard to book with, and you end up getting a bunch of rematches.
