Vince McMahon has made the decision to shorten another name for a WWE Superstar.
Mustafa Ali will now be known as simply Ali. The name change is reflected on his WWE.com profile and he has made the change on his social media accounts.
Long-time fans won’t be surprised by this. McMahon has shortened many wrestler names over the years and oftentimes no reason is given. For example, Andrade Cien Almas became Andrade earlier this year with no explanation. Apollo Crews became Apollo for a few months before they decided to give him back his last name.
