Below is WWE's announcement on Ali and Ohno working with WWN:
Mustafa Ali to face DJZ and Darby Allin at upcoming EVOLVE Wrestling events
Mustafa Ali may be The Heart of 205 Live, but that doesn't mean the Superstar's appetite for competition is limited to WWE's Cruiserweight ranks.
Ali will face two of the independent scene's most acclaimed grapplers at upcoming EVOLVE Wrestling events this November in Detroit and Chicago. WWE.com has confirmed that Ali will battle DJZ at EVOLVE 115 in Livonia, Mich., on Friday, Nov. 9, and Darby Allin at EVOLVE 116 on Saturday, Nov. 10, in Oak Lawn, Ill.
Not only is Ali set to compete at upcoming EVOLVE events, but NXT's Kassius Ohno, a former EVOLVE Champion, will make his return to the promotion later this year at a pair of shows in New York. The Knockout Artist will be in action at EVOLVE 117 on Saturday, Dec. 15, in Queens, N.Y., and at EVOLVE 118 on Sunday, Dec. 16, in Deer Park, N.Y.
Ticket information for all four events is available now at WWNlive.com.
Additionally, Ohno — who recently celebrated his 20-year anniversary in sports-entertainment — will be a special guest trainer at a World Wrestling Network Seminar/Tryout on Sunday, Dec. 16, on Long Island.
