Former Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner Mojo Rawley is the latest in today’s wave of WWE performer releases. The company made a new announcement a few moments ago via Twitter.
Mojo Rawley came to WWE via the NFL
Before entering the professional wrestling business, Rawley (real name Dan Mathadi) played for the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals in the National Football League. He signed with WWE in 2012, joining the NXT brand. In 2016, he would be invited to the main roster as part of WWE’s annual draft. During this time, he formed a team with another former WWE star, Zack Ryder, known as the Hype Bros. Just one year later he won the aforementioned WrestleMania battle with his close friend, NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski.
In fact, Mojo Rawley was an integral part of Gronkow’s appearance at WrestleMania 36. Rawley would be the one to introduce his friend to his television debut in WWE, as he lost his WWE 24/7 Championship at the same event.
Currently, Mojo Rawley has yet to make a statement regarding his release or immediate future.
