Mustafa Ali is officially out of Sunday's Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship.

Due to a concussion, it was confirmed on tonight's SmackDown that Ali won't be wrestling at Sunday's pay-per-view. Kofi Kingston is taking his place in the Elimination Chamber match for the WWE title, with Daniel Bryan defending against Kingston, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, and Jeff Hardy.

Ali worked house shows over the weekend but missed Monday's event. On SmackDown, the storyline explanation was that Ali isn't cleared for Elimination Chamber due to injuries that have accumulated.

Video of a promo from Ali aired tonight. Ali said there's nothing more frustrating than your body giving out before your heart does. He mentioned that wrestlers keep trying to put him down, but he won't stay down.

It was announced that a New Day member would be replacing Ali, and that was confirmed to be Kingston as tonight's gauntlet match between the Elimination Chamber participants began. Kingston started the gauntlet with Bryan. The match lasted for the final hour of SmackDown, with Kingston defeating Bryan, Hardy, and Joe before losing to Styles.

Orton ambushed Styles and hit an RKO to win the gauntlet match. Orton will enter the Elimination Chamber last on Sunday.

Isn't Adrade vs Mysterio already booked?

Plucking from The New Day makes sense here.

Not according to Wikipedia. I'm guessing it gets announced on Twitter during the week

What if this is mercifully finally the end of the new day? They turn and cost him the match out of jealousy and spite.

are you forgetting this is WWE? he'll get eliminated and they'll laugh it off on tuesday eating pancakes. he's replacing Ali, so he'll do all of Ali's spots. look at the gauntlet, that was perfectly scripted for Ali

If he actually wins I'll just laugh and eat pancakes. I'd actually find it extremely humorous if this jackass idiot was to win the world title in the elimination chamber of all places.

This was my first thought as well, but there is an argument that Kofi needed to be put over strong here because he's the replacement and thus you need to do something to establish the legitimacy of him being added to this match.

Yeah, otherwise he just looks like a Johnson thrown into the match just because without actually lookin' like he even means shit.

which is why i think they went with him and not Rey, Andrade, or Nak. Kofi at this point is as much of an underdog as Ali when it comes to the main event

Those other three are already involved in feuds right now, too.

but no matches for EC, they'd just be filler really and it's already the go-home, so no need to even build anything

They didn't announce Rey vs. Almas or a three-way for the US Title? That's completely shocking. Are we actually going to get a three-hour show?!

they haven't. I mentioned that i'm expecting them to announced via twitter, but so far they're not in the card. McIntyre, Elias, Revival, none of those guys are in the card yet either.
