The winding, protracted attempted exit of Mustafa Ali from WWE continued this weekend, as the wantaway SmackDown wrestler blocked the @WWEonFOX Twitter account in a show of solidarity with one of his fans.

When Twitter user @moxlore tweeted that they had been blocked by @WWEonFOX, bringing a screenshot as a receipt, Ali took action himself:-

This doesn't necessarily mean anything in the grander scheme. Twitter is Twitter, and never the be-all, end-all of any situation. Nonetheless, it is another sign of unrest from Ali, who requested his WWE release on 16 January.

Shortly after the 35-year-old had hit Twitter to let his fans know he had asked to be let go from the market-leading promotion, it was reported that Ali hadn't been brought back to television following a "heated argument" with Vince McMahon over a creative pitch described as something Mustafa would never have agreed to. He has been off television since losing to Drew McIntyre on SmackDown's 29 October 2021 episode.


A few days later, it emerged that WWE would not be granting his release anytime soon. This led to #FreeAli trending on Twitter at various points over the weekend.
