Mustafa Ali Comments On Historic Match With Mansoor At WWE Crown Jewel

Mustafa Ali recognizes that some aspects of his looming bout with Mansoor at WWE Crown Jewel aren’t ideal; he previously pointed out that the match wasn’t even promoted on the go-home episode of WWE SmackDown.

Still, in a tweet on Sunday, Ali expressed his gratitude for the fact that, for the first time in WWE history, two Muslim wrestlers will compete in a singles match on a pay-per-view. His tweet is as follows:

“though i wish some of the circumstances were different, i’m still thankful that for the first time ever two muslims will have a singles match on a wwe ppv. i’m thankful that for one night, @KSAMANNY and i get to be what we wanted to see growing up.”

Mansoor and Ali had been teaming up on WWE RAW in recent weeks before Ali abruptly turned on Mansoor last Monday, setting up this match for the pay-per-view.
