More details on his injury status were provided on Tuesday’s Wrestling Observer Radio. Basically, Ali suffered a concussion at Sunday’s live event.
“Mustafa Ali suffered a concussion on the show in Fort Wayne [on Sunday] so that is the story on Mustafa Ali.” Meltzer added, “I thought originally that it was after effects from the Orton [RKO]. His eye was already a mess but it’s actually a second injury so he’s having a really bad week.
We should know about his replacement tonight on SmackDown Live.
