Mustafa Ali announced back in September that he is no longer working with WWE, shocking fans all over the world. Since then he has been on his own World Tour campaign and his latest stop was TNA. Now, his official TNA in-ring debut has been confirmed.
In the concluding moments of the January 25 TNA iMPACT! episode, a vignette featuring Mustafa Ali hinted at a significant transformation within TNA. The message emphasized a new change, driven by the introduction of an “x-factor.” Mustafa Ali made a surprise appearance in the vignette, expressing enthusiasm as he marked his debut in TNA.
Mustafa Ali would then appear on TNA programming in more vignettes. TNA Wrestling has announced that Chris Sabin will defend the TNA X-Division Championship against Mustafa Ali at TNA No Surrender on February 23.
”BREAKING: @SuperChrisSabin will defend the X Division Championship against @MustafaAli_X on February 23rd at #NoSurrender LIVE on TNA+ and YouTube for IMPACT Ultimate Insiders!”
The event will be broadcast on TNA+. Ali, who has been featured in vignettes on recent TNA programming, has targeted the X-Division Championship as his goal. We’ll have to wait and see if Ali will be able to beat Sabin for the gold.
