5 Reasons why Kofi Kingston replaced Mustafa Ali at WWE Elimination Chamber 2019
- Why weren't Mysterio and Andrade chosen for the contest instead?
#2 Bringing the same physical attributes as Mustafa Ali
Mustafa Ali is much bigger than the average Cruiserweight. And yet, he is surprisingly agile and nimble on his feet, in a way that many younger and smaller competitors are not. I would have to say Kofi Kingston falls into the same category in terms of his build and what he brings to the table as a competitor.
Maybe there was a special spot planned with Mustafa Ali using the Elimination Chamber match as a launchpad to do something cool! If there's anyone who can make it happen, it is certainly Kofi Kingston. Kingston may no longer be the young man that he once was, but as the Gauntlet match this week proved, he can still go.
I would like to wish Mustafa Ali a speedy recovery for now because it must be supremely heartbreaking to come so close to your dream and miss out. Get well soon!Published 13 Feb 2019, 09:00 IST
