Following an impressive showing on SmackDown Live last week, WWE has announced Mustafa Ali will now be joining the show permanently.
The announcement was made while commentary promoted Ali’s main event match on Tuesday evening. It was not said if he’ll continue to appear on 205 Live.
Later on in the episode, Mustafa picked up a huge upset win over Daniel Bryan in a tag team match where he was paired with former champ AJ Styles.
As we previously reported, Raw and SmackDown are undergoing changes with the McMahon family taking control again from a storyline standpoint. One of these changes was Paige being removed from her role as General Manager of SmackDown.
For those looking to get more familiar with the new SmackDown star, check out his appearance this week on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast. The wrestler talks about being a cop prior to signing with WWE, building up the 205 Live brand and much more.
