Mustafa Ali took to Twitter on Sunday with a message announcing he had requested his release from the WWE. He wrote, "I have a message that is much bigger than my dreams in pro wrestling. Despite my best efforts, I will not be able to deliver this message while working with WWE. Therefore, I am requesting my release from WWE." Ali hadn't been on WWE television since late October and despite being in the WWE since 2016 never held a championship with the company. Yet, despite that, Ali had grown a passionate fanbase over the years and they all voiced their support upon hearing the news.

Don't Buy In
I will not be buying any reports that Mustafa Ali was "difficult" or a "challenge to work with". No one within wrestling that has interacted with Ali, even briefly, will be able to say a bad word about him. He's truly one of the industry's best people.— Louis Dangoor (@TheLouisDangoor) January 16, 2022

Nothing But The Best
It is obvious not everyone can be a top star but for WWE to not have anything for someone as creative and as bright as Mustafa Ali is mind boggling.
That man is a star and I wish him nothing but the best.— Wrestle Ops (@WrestleOps) January 16, 2022
