The 205 Live roster gathered to watch Mustafa Ali wrestle his first match on SmackDown last week and the cruiserweight says it meant a whole lot to him.
As you may have seen, Jack Gallagher shared a photo of the cruiserweights intently observing a backstage monitor during Ali’s match against Daniel Bryan.
“The entire 205 Live roster was watching my match at Gorilla and as soon as I came back they were the first ones to greet me,” Mustafa explained on the latest episode of Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia.
“Obviously it’s a competition and we’re all trying to compete, and we’re all jockeying for position. But just to come back ….. as you can see I’m getting kinda like,” he continued while nervously laughing and getting a bit choked up. “I hope that brought some eyes to 205 Live, but out of everything that happened — out of all the kind words I got today — that actually meant the most.”
