Ali is one of the few WWE stars who have gotten their first names back after WWE decided to change it. Other stars include Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. 

Ali is a talent that WWE officials are high on after making the jump from the 205 Live brand to SmackDown earlier this year. Daniel Bryan has gone on record by praising him and thinks he has a lot of potential. 

His most notable moment on the main roster thus far was when he worked a Triple Threat Match with Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens for the WWE Title at the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view event from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on the WWE Network back in March.
