One injured WWE star made his return to in-ring action. That is SmackDown talent Mustafa Ali, who was back inside of the squared circle on Saturday night for a live event in Minneapolis, MN at the Target Center where he battled and lost to WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.

He last wrestled on February 10th. Ali was being pulled from the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view due to a tailbone injury and has not been seen since. At one point, he was penciled in as Daniel Bryan’s opponent at WWE Fastlane but that spot ended up going to Kofi Kingston.
