WWE Denies Mustafa Ali’s Release Request


Recently WWE Star Mustafa Ali requested his release from the company while posting a training video on social media. That came after WWE sent him home weeks ago after an argument with Vince McMahon.

We’ve learned at The Ringside Roster via Fightful Select, that both Mustafa Ali and WWE have spoken since, but the response to his request appears to be a resounding “no” at this point.

“Those that Fightful Select heard from confirmed that WWE and Ali have spoken with each other and that Ali was informed that they would not be granting his request for a release at this moment, and as of now it isn’t the plan. Ali has years left on his WWE deal, but hasn’t been used on WWE TV or even at tapings in over two months. While some suspected that he was out on paternity leave, we’re told he’d only asked for one show off.”

WWE has released a crazy amount of stars over the past year or so including Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt, Aleister Black and Keith Lee, but it appears that Mustafa Ali’s name won’t be added to the list just yet.
