WrestleMania will present this year the final of the tournament to crown a new Cruiserweight Champion. This week we confirmed that it will be Mustafa Ali, the rival of Cedric Alexander after he defeated Drew Gulak in the recent 205 Live program. The other finalist for his part defeated Roderick Strong last week.
When the tournament began, Ali claimed that his path to the “Showcase of the Immortals” was beginning. And he was not wrong. Now he will have a place in the biggest event of the year, from which he could emerge as king of the violet brand. Without a doubt, it will be his most important fight so far.
In a recent publication on Twitter, he did not talk about his great opportunity, but his arrival at the company.
“This wasn’t a cheap one-liner…I remember coming to WWE thinking I had to prove the universe wrong. They proved me wrong. They accepted me when I thought they never would.”

We can say that this fighter was not one of the favorites to reach the final of the tournament, and is not the favorite to win the fight in the great event, but if he gave the surprise in the semifinal could also do the same in the final.
