Mustafa Ali is reportedly out of the WWE Title Elimination Chamber match, according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.
Ali has been dealing with several injuries as of late and WWE is pulling him from the match due to those injuries. An injured tailbone was hurt again during the WWE Royal Rumble and then Ali suffered the eye injury on last week’s SmackDown at the boot of Randy Orton. One of the injuries was accelerated at Sunday’s WWE live event and now Ali is not expected to be cleared to compete this week. The current plan is to do a storyline that will blame Orton for Ali’s injuries. Ali reportedly told WWE officials that he’s able to work but WWE is taking the safe route.
There’s no word yet on who will join WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, Orton, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Jeff Hardy inside the Chamber on Sunday, but we will keep you updated.
