Following a 13-year absence from the ring, former WWE Superstar Muhammad Hassan made his return to action. Hassan picked up the victory against ‘Greek God’ Papadon at Dynasty Wrestling’s ‘King Of Thrones’ event in Amsterdam, New York.
Muhammad’s been out of wrestling since his release from WWE in 2005 following a controversial angle on SmackDown involving The Undertaker and masked men in camouflage pants armed with piano wire and clubs. The London bombings took place three days later and while at the height of his notoriety, WWE was pressured by UPN (the home of SmackDown at the time) and fans. Hassan was then written off of television after taking a Last Ride from Undertaker at The Great American Bash 2005. He was sent back to developmental (Ohio Valley Wrestling) and then subsequently released in September of the same year.
EA’s Take: Good to see him getting back into the ring after such a long time, he looked to still be in good shape as he’s only 36 years old. Hassan will always be one of those “what if” Superstars for those that remember him. He was red hot as a heel and some have even claimed he was set for a massive push towards the World Heavyweight Championship. Being that he was only 23 at the time of his departure, it’s really a shame we never got to see what kind of a career he could have had.
