Report: Mustafa Ali Set For Shock Return To WWE TV

Mustafa Ali looks set to return to WWE TV

Months after he requested his release from the company, Mustafa Ali is set for a shock return to WWE TV.

According to Fightful Select, Ali is 'tentatively scheduled' to be at tonight's edition of Monday Night Raw from Knoxville, Tennessee. His return to TV was said to have been discussed as of last weekend. 

Ali hasn't appeared on any of the company's programming since a two-minute loss to Drew McIntyre on the October 29, 2021, edition on Friday Night SmackDown and the 36-year-old hasn't won a match on TV since a tag team victory with Mansoor on the September 2 episode of Main Event. 

Ali was pulled from TV in the autumn after a 'heated argument' with Vince McMahon over his creative direction, with reports noting the WWE Chairman pitched a character Ali 'would never have done.' 

Ali then requested his release from WWE in January of 2022 but the company have not granted that request, with 'value' being brought up in conversations between the former SmackDown Hacker and his employer. 

The former RETRIBUTION Leader also seemingly still has years left on his WWE deal as he tweeted back in February that he would see fans in about two-and-a-half years.
