SmackDown Star Reportedly Pulled From Elimination Chamber Match Due To Injuries

WWE was pressed to replace the injured Mustafa Ali in Sunday's Elimination Chamber bout for the WWE Championship, due to Ali suffering a reported concussion.

To explain Ali's absence from the Elimination Chamber Match, WWE plans to run an angle where Orton is to blame for his injuries.

McConnell: Yes, We'll Be Voting on the Green New Deal
President Donald Trump's administration opposes action on climate change and favors boosting USA production of oil, gas and coal. The Senate will vote on new climate change legislation known as the Green New Deal, McConnell told reporters.

It's incredibly tough news to hear, and Ali's injury is just the latest in WWE since the calendar turned to 2019. Then last week on Smackdown LIVE, Ali's eye was swollen shut after sitting up into Randy Orton's boot while "The Viper" did the Garvin Stomp. Ali has all the tools to be a top babyface in this company, so his presence at the Elimination Chamber will be greatly missed, especially after shining in the Royal Rumble with exactly 30 minutes of great wrestling.

Update: Kofi Kingston has been confirmed as Ali's replacement; he competed in tonight's gauntlet match and will enter Sunday's title match. It was also revealed that one member of The New Day will replace Ali in the title match, and that person will compete in tonight's gauntlet match, with the victor entering Sunday's match last.
