Ali donating all earnings from Super ShowDown to charity

WWE Superstar Ali wrote on social media that he is donating all the money he is receiving from participating at Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Charity Water.

Charity Water is a a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.

WWE has always been criticized for accepting a 10-year deal with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and accepting blood money for the sake of business. Everyone on the roster – including women who are not part of the event – receive a payment from each Saudi show.

The Chicago-born of Muslim faith Ali is often heckled on Twitter for being a Muslim. In a tweet yesterday, he wished his son a happy birthday and apologized for missing his birthday again but explained that he’s out there “trying to chase down a dream while knocking down a few barriers,” barriers, he said, that he hopes his son will never have to see.
