• SmackDown Wrestler Quietly Moved To RAW
Mustafa Ali hasn’t been seen on WWE programming since December of 2019. His last televised match was against The Revival, which he lost while pairing up with Shorty G.
While Ali continued working dark matches after that, he wasn’t brought on TV even once. The reason behind it is unknown.
PWInsider is reporting that Ali has quietly been shifted from SmackDown to RAW, but the change hasn’t been made on WWE’s roster page on their website.
If that is the case, then we could see Ali returning to TV as part of the red brand soon.
It has also been rumored that Ali is the hacker on SmackDown, but it’s unknown what WWE is planning to do with that angle, since they haven’t featured the hacker on TV for a while.
