Mojo Rawley (Dean Muhtadi) has recalled talk of him becoming the mouthpiece of a new League of Nations WWE faction.
Speaking with Chris Hero in Shoot Conversations, Rawley noted that he was going to be aligned with Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura to form the stable ahead of WrestleMania 36.
Explaining that he was ultimately moved to SmackDown and was a face to promote Rob Gronkowski, Rawley said:
“My most recent Mania, I’m doing the heel thing and I tagged with Cesaro and (Shinsuke Nakamura). They liked that. They were talking about that being a new League of Nations and I was going to be the mouthpiece of it. Who knows how much that was going to be a thing.
“I’m doing my heel work, then the 24/7 stuff was around there, then I moved SmackDown and I was immediately hyped up babyface to bring in Rob and we had big plans that didn’t materialize because of the pandemic he went back to football. They put me right back to being a heel immediately and I was flip-flopping every week.”
The original League of Nations group consisted of Wade (King) Barrett, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio and Rusev (AEW’s Miro).
Rawley was released by WWE in April, after 10 months of inactivity. The former Hype Bro previously revealed that he was ‘more or less’ told that the door will be open for him to return to the company in the future.
