A veteran of the cruiserweight wars, Ali brought his years of in-ring experience to Full Sail University in pursuit of glory during the Cruiserweight Classic.
For more than a decade, Ali has honed his craft all over the country, squaring off with some of the toughest competition that both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions have to offer. Hailing from Chicago, Ali exudes a quiet confidence that allows his action to speak louder than words. His dogged perservearance led to a bout for the then-vacant WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander at WrestleMania, and though he was narrowly edged by his friend, Ali had the capacity crowd in the palm of his hand from bell to bell.
Ali moved from 205 Live to SmackDown LIVE and wasted no time turning heads, as he scored an incredible pinfall victory against then-WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a tag team match. No stranger to jaw-dropping moments inside the squared circle, Ali puts his extensive in-ring ability on full display when he executes the jaw-dropping 054, a reverse 450 splash on the Tuesday night brand.
