TNA X-Division Champion Mustafa Ali Spotted Backstage at AEW Dynamite

One big thing

TNA X-Division Champion Mustafa Ali was reportedly backstage at AEW Dynamite’s “Beach Break” edition in Chicago on July 3.

Why it matters

Ali’s presence at an AEW event sparks speculation about potential crossovers or talent movement between wrestling promotions, especially given his status as a free agent despite holding a TNA title.

The details

• Ali was reportedly visiting friends and not in contract negotiations.
• The Chicago native does not have an official contract with TNA, despite being their X-Division Champion.
• AEW’s “Beach Break” featured notable moments, including:
– Hangman Adam Page’s return
– MJF’s attack on Daniel Garcia
– Mercedes Mone’s confrontation with Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D.


• Wrestlers visiting other promotions is common in the industry.
• Recent examples include:
– ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey visiting “AEW Collision
– Donovan Dijak backstage at AEW’s Forbidden Door pay-per-view

The bottom line

While Ali’s appearance backstage at AEW Dynamite is noteworthy, it doesn’t necessarily indicate an imminent move or collaboration between promotions.
