We finally know when Veer is coming.
Tonight’s vignette on Raw announced that Veer Mahaan will appear on the April 4 edition of Raw, the Raw following WrestleMania 38 weekend. Vignettes have been airing on Raw since October hyping Mahaan’s debut, usually ending with the phrase “Veer Mahaan is coming”.
Mahaan had been associated with Jinder Mahal and Shanky prior to last year’s WWE Draft. Mahal and Shanky were moved to SmackDown, but Mahaan remained on Raw as a singles wrestler. Despite the vignettes, Mahaan has wrestled regularly on WWE Main Event, most recently defeating a local competitor on the March 14 edition of the show.
Prior to signing with WWE in 2018, Mahaan, real name Rinku Singh, won a reality show called The Million Dollar Arm in India where he threw the fastest and most accurate baseball. He traveled to the United States and eventually played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the MLB. His story was the subject of a film released by Disney in 2014 called Million Dollar Arm.
