Mustafa Ali wants fans to understand just how historically significant his match with Mansoor at WWE Crown Jewel on October 21 is going to be.
On last week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Mustafa Ali turned on his tag team partner Mansoor, setting up this match between the two at WWE Crown Jewel on Thursday night.
The match is significant for a few reasons, firstly because it'll be the first match Mansoor has had in Saudi Arabia since becoming a full-time member of the WWE main roster.
However, more than that, Mustafa Ali has pointed out on Twitter that the match will be the first time that WWE has had two Muslims go one-on-one at a pay-per-view.
Mustafa Ali said that while he wishes some of the circumstances surrounding the match were different, he was thankful to get the opportunity to share the ring with a fellow Muslim man.
The former 205 Live star also said that two Muslims sharing the ring at a WWE pay-per-view was something that he and Mansoor would have been thinking about since they were children.
WWE inexplicably forgot to promote the match on Friday Night SmackDown last week, something that caught the intention of Mustafa Ali, who tweeted:
