Heavy-ion collisions are the unique tool available to investigate strongly interacting matter at high energy density where the formation of a new phase of matter - the quark-gluon plasma, is expected. The ALICE Muon Spectrometer is specifically designed to study this phase of matter using muonic channel in the acceptance region between 2° and 10°. This study focuses on the analysis of W^±→μ^± Monte-Carlo generated data using PYTHIA 6.4 in the AliROOT framework in proton-proton collision at 8 TeV. Here a summary of the results obtained so far is presented.
