Mustafa Ali has carved an immediate spot for himself on Tuesday nights ever since making the jump from the Cruiserweight division to prime time Smackdown Live, scoring huge victories over high profile talent and even earning a spot in tonight’s Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship.
Unfortunately, after suffering a concussion and being badly banged up following a recent match against “The Viper” Randy Orton, Ali was ruled unable to competed in the dreaded Chamber match, and was instead replaced by another underdog fan favorite — Kofi Kingston.
Just hours before the match is set to go down on live pay-per-view, Mustafa Ali has taken to social media with a new video, stating how difficult it was to watch Kofi take his spot in Tuesday night’s gauntlet match on Smackdown Live, despite how amazing his hour-long performance was.
It will be equally difficult to watch the New Day star take his spot in tonight’s main event, but Ali is bound and determined to heal up and return to the ring soon, and will find a way to get back into the title hunt. Check out the video below.
