Here are more details from the source on the injury,
“Ali had been working through an injured tailbone that got hurt again at WWE’s Royal Rumble show. Last week on Smackdown live, Ali’s eye was swollen shut after sitting up into Randy Orton’s boot on the Garvin Stomp. We’re told that an injury was accelerated on Sunday night’s live event and that he’s likely not to be cleared for action all week long.”
As you can see above, Mustafa Ali is dealing with a number of injuries at this moment. WWE doctors are quite conscious when it comes to protecting superstars’ bodies. So they are not likely to clear him for the WWE Championship match. Entering Elimination Chamber can just increase the severity of the issue.
It is really sad news for the fans of Mustafa Ali. Ever since entering the Smackdown roster, he was on a roll picking up a couple of big wins that landed him into the Elimination Chamber, straight. His big flying actions could be a thing of beauty inside this dangerous structure. But now he will not get this opportunity which could become a major roadblock moving towards Wrestlemania 35.
We should also mention that there will be a Gauntlet Match on Smackdown Live. The six participants of Elimination Chamber i.e. Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Mustafa Ali and Randy Orton were about to face each other in this. But if the injury rumors are true then Ali will have to stay out of competition, tonight.
