Mustafa Ali publicly requested his release from the WWE back on Jan. 16 after not being used on WWE programming since late October. It was then reported days later that, despite the many roster cuts WWE has made over the past two years (almost always cited as budget cuts), the company would not grant Ali his release. Since then fans have started posting the hashtag "#FreeAli" in support of the SmackDown star, to the point where it began trending on Sunday night.
On top of this, fans started noticing that the @WWEonFox Twitter account began blocking people for using the hashtag. This led to Ali breaking his silence by publicly blocking the account in return. You can see some of the #FreeAli posts in the list below.

If Adeel (Mustafa Ali) was in AEW and they acted like WWE, I swear on my Mom's I would stop watching AEW. No talent deserves this kind of disrespect. You don't hold talents against their will. Give the man 90 days none compete or whatever but let go. #FreeAli— Macho Beard™ (@Machobeard4life) January 21, 2022

Let Him Chase
This video package gives me chills.#FreeAli isn't about what company Ali should go to to next. It's about him being able to chase his dreams that are bigger & deeper than wrestling. https://t.co/pVwMZt8dHS— Pro Wrestling Finesse (@ProWFinesse) January 24, 2022
