WWE Fan Reveals How Mustafa Ali Turned His Life Around
Posted On July 12, 2020
Mustafa Ali has taken Smackdown Live by storm ever since he debuted on the show in December. Since then, he’s shown the world just how talented and hard-working he is.
Apparently, he’s just as hard-working outside of the ring. The former police officer allegedly helped save a fan’s life simply by interacting with him via social media.
Prowrestlingsheet.com had an exclusive on the matter where the fan described the events that helped save his life.
Almost a year ago, Ali reached out to New Zealand man Michael Green on Twitter after a friend told him about Green’s story. He gave Green the following message in a video on the social media platform.
“Despite what you’re going through, try to be the reason people believe there’s still goodness in this world,” Ali said in the Twitter video he directed to Michael last year. “Whatever it is you’re facing, you’re going to get through this. I believe in you.”
Pro Wrestling Sheet then mentions that Green began to cry and his wife came to his side to ask him what was wrong. He then revealed to her that he was struggling with his mental health and was having thoughts of suicide.
“Here was someone who didn’t know me from anywhere but social media interactions reaching out to me when I’d decided there was no point to anything anymore,” Michael said.
After watching Ali’s video message, Green and his wife did what they could to help turn his thoughts around, from getting on a medication as well as ‘working to make sure he would never reach this low again’.
The report also mentions that Ali still keeps in touch with Green via social media even if the two are practically worlds apart. It also reveals that Ali still says he has Green’s back and these messages help keep Green on the right path.
To commemorate his struggles, Green got a tattoo to help remind him of his struggles. A part of the ink includes the logo Ali wears on his ring gear.
“For me, it was a reminder of where I’d come from and how I got past it,” Michael said of the new ink. “We live in a world where terrible things happen every day, and yet people like Ali do what they can to try and find a balance and bring positivity to the world. Ali inspired me to try and be the same, so I carry his words with pride and in honor of the man who helped me find my way.”
