The shocking news of Mustafa Ali‘s departure from WWE has taken the world by storm. Once known as the Heart of 205 Live, he was recently released by WWE due to their post-merger talent cuts. This came as a big shock, as he was scheduled to face Dominik Mysterio for the NXT North American Championship soon. The wrath of this let-go has been suffered by more than eight stars who were mainly part of the main roster, excluding Mustafa.

Ali announced his release on X after getting to know the news from the company. He wrote, “I am [no] longer working with WWE. I look forward to the future. Thank you, Adeel.” Mustafa’s real name, Adeel Alam, was mentioned by him in the post due to his ring name not being relevant to his career as of now.

Mustafa made a mistake while writing the post and instead wrote, “I am longer working with WWE.” But a correcting post was shared 8 minutes later, in which he wrote, “No longer*. Sorry for the confusion.” The news still remained the same and had a huge impact on the WWE Universe, who did not expect this at all. 

Ali was a part of the NXT roster and was getting a serious push on the yellow brand. His jump on Tuesday Nights happened a few months ago as he aimed for the NXT North American Championship. His efforts were turning out to be fruitful, as he was also scheduled for a title shot against “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio at No Mercy.
