Mansoor joins WWE Raw roster, faces Sheamus


Mansoor is now a part of the Raw brand.

On tonight’s episode of Raw, Mansoor made his debut, signing a Raw contract backstage with WWE official Adam Pearce. Sheamus then arrived, mentioning that Mansoor could accept his open challenge for later tonight. Mansoor did accept the challenge, but lost to Sheamus by DQ after Humberto Carrillo ran in and attacked Sheamus, retaliation for earlier when Sheamus attacked Carrillo backstage. The segment ended with Sheamus laying out both Carrillo and Mansoor with Brogue kicks.

Mansoor had attained 49 straight consecutive wins, dating back from his time in NXT to wrestling in Saudi Arabia, and most recently wrestling on 205 Live and Main Event. With tonight’s loss, his streak ends.

Signing with the WWE in 2018, Mansoor has been featured in several of WWE’s shows in Saudi Arabia. At Super Showdown in 2019, he last eliminated Elias to win a 51-man battle royal. At Crown Jewel later that year, he defeated Cesaro in a singles match.
