5 superstars who can replace Mustafa Ali in the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match
Mustafa Ali is one of the most promising talents on Smackdown LIVE. Even before completing two months on the main roster, the 32-year-old had competed in high profile matches against the likes of Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton.
However, owing to the tailbone injury suffered at Royal Rumble 2019 and a swollen eye (due to a botched stomp from Randy Orton), the reports have it that Mustafa Ali may have to miss the 2019 Elimination Chamber main event for the WWE Championship.
Even amidst this unfortunate incident, the show must go on. Elimination Chamber matches are some of the most anticipated bouts in a calendar year and thus, cannot be sacrificed. Hence, if Ali cannot make it to the Chamber match, here are a few alternative superstars who can replace him for the WWE title match this Sunday.
Honorable mention: Cesaro
#5 Bray Wyatt
Even though Bray Wyatt was last seen on RAW, there is no denying that the Eater of Worlds had his best days on Smackdown LIVE. Wyatt became the WWE Champion 2 years ago at Elimination Chamber after pinning both John Cena and AJ Styles clean. Thus it would only be poetic if Wyatt makes his return to the blue brand and possibly get his eyes on the title.
Wyatt has not been on WWE TV for quite a long time now. With Wrestlemania around the corner, and with no signs of WWE hinting at his return, one would worry about Wyatt's Wrestlemania status. Wyatt has been posting cryptic messages on his social media accounts, but that is the only update we have about him so far.
So, if Wyatt wants to rekindle his Wrestlemania hopes, he would need to return as soon as possible to the WWE ring. With an opportunity looming, it would be foolish if Bray does not take it.
