In a blog on ArabNews.com, WWE star Mansoor talked about becoming part of the RAW brand…
” We are working on my image – new music, new logos etc. – because now I have been introduced, it is important to establish my character on the show. To do all of that on a huge stage such as Raw is a little intimidating, but very exciting.
I am growing, learning and having these huge life experiences, and it is bizarre to think about how crazy this journey has been. The transition from performing on NXT to performing on Raw or SmackDown is so big. To even appear on the show once puts you in such an exclusive club so I take it as a privilege.
One of the things WWE said is they would like me to put on some muscle mass, and right now I am working with Sheamus’s personal trainer, who has been really helpful. I am counting my macronutrients and calories, and recording all of my reps and sets in the gym. It is crazy how much difference writing stuff down and tracking it makes.”
Since my last column, there have been some really positive developments in terms of my World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) career. Earlier this month, I signed a contract with RAW, one of WWE’s most popular and high-profile brands, giving me the opportunity to test myself against some of the most talented performers on a regular basis.
