Mustafa Ali has started a movement online. Ali asked WWE for his release after he clashed backstage with Vince McMahon over creative differences. Mustafa was denied his release. Since then, he has launched social media campaign to attempt to #FreeAli.

Fans really backed Mustafa Ali’s efforts in a huge way. Even some WWE wrestlers including Sasha Banks appear to have expressed support. WWE is now facing an interesting decision when it comes to how to treat the situation.

Amanda Huber recently compared Mustafa Ali’s predicament to her late husband, Brodie Lee. Brodie was ready to leave WWE but was denied his release. Huber sent out a tweet in support of Ali’s attempt to leave the company.

“I keep seeing #FreeAli is trending.


I know what it’s like watching someone ask for their release and get stuck.

I promise the future is ready for the amazing things @AliWWE is going to do. It’s sucks it’s delayed but know we are rooting for you”

Brodie Lee requested his WWE release in 2019. Eventually, that request was granted. Brodie was finally allowed to leave year later. The former Luke Harper signed with AEW and became the leader of the Dark Order. Sadly, he passed away shortly after making himself a major star in Tony Khan’s promotion.

Amanda Huber knows exactly with Mustafa Ali is going through. WWE is facing major fan backlash over their handling of the situation. We’ll have to see if Ali ultimately wins his release.
