Adeel Alam is currently signed to WWE under the shortened ring name of Ali. He initially performed on the company’s 205 Live brand before joining SmackDown in December 2018. Prior to joining WWE, he wrestled on the American independent circuit from 2003 to 2016.

Alam was criticized for not displaying a Pakistani flag and representing the country by his Pakistani fans in January 2017. He stated, “I don’t care for nationality. I care for unity. I don’t mean to offend anyone. This is just me stating that I feel nationality doesn’t define us as people, it separates us.”

Alam spent four years serving as a police officer in Homewood, Illinois, a suburb south of Chicago, in order to support his family before being signed to WWE. He considers Bret Hart his wrestling idol.
