Mustafa Ali took to Twitter to comment on his upcoming match with Mansoor at WWE Crown Jewel. 

Ali commented how he and Mansoor will be the first two Muslims to have a singles match on a WWE pay-per-view.

He tweeted, “Though I wish some of the circumstances were different, i’m still thankful that for the first time ever two Muslims will have a singles match on a WWE PPV. I’m thankful that for one night, @KSAMANNY and i get to be what we wanted to see growing up.”
