Mustafa Ali def. Ariya Daivari

Mustafa Ali vs. Ariya Daivari: WWE 205 Live: Feb. 7, 2017

After exchanging harsh words in the locker room, Mustafa Ali and Ariya Daivari battle in singles competition to settle their argument.

Coming from similar backgrounds, Ariya Daivari and Mustafa Ali couldn’t have more different outlooks on their respective careers. Ali’s positive attitude inside the squared circle is a stark contrast to Daivari’s often-angry demeanor.

Originally, Tony Nese was set to compete in the Fatal 5-Way for an opportunity at the Cruiserweight Championship. With “The Premier Athlete” injured, the winner of this match would advance to the Fatal 5-Way.

Quickly engaging inside the ring, Ali relied on his speed and agility to try and offset any offense from Daivari. The Persian Lion countered, channeling his anger into an effective flurry of powerful strikes. Knowing what was at stake – and facing the prospect of competing a second time later in the evening – Daivari was looking for quick victory.

Following a missed frog splash, Ali regained momentum before the contest went back and forth. Following an impressive Tornado DDT, Ali executed a perfect inverted 450 Splash and earned a spot in the Fatal 5-Way.
