Mustafa Ali Becomes Latest WWE Superstar To Lose A Name

SmackDown Live Superstar is now just 'Ali'!

I have no idea why they do it, but sometimes WWE likes to strip a Superstar or two of one of their names.

We've seen it so many times down the years with the likes of Otis and Tucker of Heavy Machinery, Cesaro, Big E, Andrade and Elias all losing names for one reason or another, with SmackDown Live Superstar Mustafa Ali losing his Mustafa in the latest shocking example of the Wrestling Name Thief doing his dastardly worst!

Going forward, the former 205 Live roster member will simply be known as - Ali...

It's been a bit of a rollercoaster year for Ali so far in 2019, with a move to SmackDown Live coming out of nowhere as Vince McMahon sees him as a star who can garner a great deal of empathy from the watching WWE Universe.

Then, with a spot in the Elimination Chamber in the bag, injury ruled him out of that match at the last minute with his replacement, Kofi Kingston, seemingly taking his spot for a big WrestleMania season push.

And now this... our thoughts are with him.
