It appears WWE has added indy star Mustafa Ali to the Cruiserweight Classic, as the Pakistani grappler’s profile has been added to the Cruiserweight Classic section of WWE.com.
We noted yesterday that WWE was bringing additional talent to Orlando as backup stars in case already announced names suffered injuries or did not pass required WWE medical testing.
It’s unknown at this time whether or not Ali is replacing an already announced name, and below is his WWE.com profile:
A veteran of the cruiserweight wars, Mustafa Ali will aim to bring his years of experience to Full Sail University in pursuit of the Cruiserweight Classic crown.
Ali is no stranger to stiff competition, having traveled all over the country for a decade-plus, squaring off with some of the toughest competition both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions have to offer. Will his multi-level experience help him float and sting to glory in the Cruiserweight Classic?
