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.

MLB Insider Believes Bryce Harper Is Down To 2 Teams
Harper entered free agency with reported hopes of securing a contract in excess of 10 years and $300 million. Bonds meant so much to the Giants back then, and (Harper) wants to be that guy now.

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.
