Hasbulla refused WWE debut and offer because it broke his 'own principles'

Social media sensation Hasbulla Magomedov turned down a huge WWE offer, reports claim.
The 20-year-old, who suffers from dwarfism and has a childlike appearance, is one of the biggest names on the internet and signed a massive contract with UFC last year.
Hasbulla has been cageside for fights and even been inside the Octagon with Khabib Nurmagomedov after Islam Makhachev became UFC lightweight champion.
But there has also been huge interest from WWE, according to The New York Times.
The sports entertainment juggernaut invited Hasbulla to attend this year's WrestleMania event, which was a two-day extravaganza at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California in early April.
He would have been given front-row tickets for the show but the devout muslim rejected the proposal as he had already planned to head to Saudi Arabia, and specifically Mecca, for Ramadan.
"I have my own principles that I will not break for any money and fame,” he explained.
Hasbulla spent time in the United States and was looked after by the NELK Boys and even got his hand on WWE's Golden Championship title - first held by Snoop Dogg.
The rap legend hosted WrestleMania alongside The Miz, who he knocked out before performing The Rock's 'People's Elbow' finisher in a shocking moment after Shane McMahon got injured.
Other big appearances at the show of shows included KSI and Bad Bunny, who both got involved in matches.
Hasbulla is extremely religious and turned down massive fees for club appearances because it goes against his beliefs.
For his tour of Australia, it was communicated that the star would not pose with female fans in meet and greets because of his "cultural and personal beliefs".
A statement read: "To our female guests, if you would like to attend [the tour's official] meet and greet with Hasbulla, you are welcome to do so, but please acknowledge the limitations of photography.
"We understand the disappointment this creates. However, we respectfully acknowledge the cultural and personal beliefs of Hasbulla and have to accommodate his requests accordingly."
