This is part 2 of our WWE Crown Jewel 2021 live coverage (part 1 is here).
Up next is the 1st ever singles match between 2 Muslims on a WWE pay-per-view: Mustafa Ali vs. Mansoor.
This is the second match on the main PPV show. The first match was the Hell in a Cell match between Edge and Seth Rollins, where Edge won his trilogy against Rollins. Fans are calling it the match of the year.
Mansoor got a good reaction from his home country crowd.
For those who don’t know, Ali & Mansoor became a tag team earlier this year, but recently had a break up.
After back & forth action, Ali missed the 450 Splash, and then Mansoor hit an over the top rope Neckbreaker to pick up the win.
Mansoor def. Mustafa Ali
Mansoor’s winning streak in Saudi Arabia continues. Ali isn’t happy and attacked Mansoor after the match.
This led to a special appearance from Olympic Karateka Tareg Hamedi from Saudi Arabia (he won a silver medal at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan). He got a huge pop from the crowd.
He laid out Ali with a kick to the head. He and Mansoor then celebrated.
