While the Crown Jewel show gets a lot of criticism, there is some good that can come out of an event with a ton of scrutiny.
One of the newest members to Team Hogan isn't just trying to help what appears to be the babyface team at Crown Jewel on October 31st. No, Ali is doing babyface things and making babyface gestures — much like his superhero persona suggests he should — by donating his earnings from the pay-per-view to charity.
After being named to the team, Ali sent out a tweet with a photo of himself and Hogan with the caption "A real American...and Hulk Hogan. I’ve been added to Team Hogan on 10/31 at Crown Jewel."
Yes.— ALI / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) October 19, 2019
When a follower asked Ali if he would, once again, be notating his earnings from the show, Ali said simply, "Yes."
It was learned that Ali donated his previous Saudi Arabia money from Super ShowDown to Charity: Water, a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. He clarified again, after sending his first response, that he would be donating his cheque there again.
Ali Is One of the Good Guys
For wrestlers going to the show, many aren't happy to be there. Others understand the money is too great for WWE to pass it up and others simply choose not to go. But few have taken what might be seen as a negative and turned it into something positive by taking the money WWE is paying to its Superstars and giving it out.
And, while Ali might not be among the highest-paid WWE contracted performers, everyone knows how much WWE is making and how significant the paydays are for the wrestlers who make the trip. Even the wrestlers not on the main event make good money.
