Matt Hardy tweeted the following, noting that despite him and Ali having separate religions, Ali is a “great person” and the two delivered a “show-stealer” match at a WWE SmackDown! Live event in Salt Lake City on Sunday night.
This is my friend, @AliWWE. Ali is a Muslim. I was raised as a Christian. Ali is one of the best, most wholesome souls that I’ve ever met. That’s all that matters.

Absolute honor to share the ring with you.
