Mustafa Ali has been quietly shifted to the Raw brand, has confirmed.

Ali, 34 years old, debuted for WWE in 2016 as part of the Cruiserweight Classic Tournament.  He was signed for the 205 Live brand, including a memorable feud with Cedric Alexander before being brought up to the Smackdown roster in 2018.  Ali was given a strong push out of the gate, challenging then-WWE Champion Daniel Bryan, before a leg injury halted that storyline    He has been working the blue brand since that point and was speculated to be the "Smackdown Hacker", but if that was the case, it may no longer be correct.

Ali last wrestled in February of this year but when he returns to action, he will be part of the Raw roster.
