• RAW’s Newest Male Wrestler Revealed On Tonight’s Show
On tonight’s episode of RAW, Mansoor (WWE’s first-ever Saudi Arabian-born wrestler) officially signed a main roster contract during a meeting with Adam Pearce backstage and he has joined the red brand.
United States Champion Sheamus then confronted him and told him to accept his Open Challenge later on.
For those who don’t know, Mansoor is currently on a 49 match winning streak because WWE officials want to keep Saudi Arabia officials happy.
It should be noted that Mansoor has suffered losses in WWE, but he has won his last 49 matches.
Mansoor made his first-ever WWE appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV in Saudi Arabia in April 2018.
Mansoor has only wrestled on NXT, 205 Live & WWE Main Event, and has never competed on RAW & SmackDown (which are WWE’s main weekly shows).
However, Mansoor has competed at WWE’s big Saudi Arabia PPVs. At Super ShowDown 2019, he won a 51-man Battle Royal. At Crown Jewel 2019, he defeated Cesaro in a singles match. At Super ShowDown 2020, he defeated Dolph Ziggler in a singles match.
We recently noted that WWE is very likely to return to Saudi Arabia at some point within the second half of 2021.
Wrestling Club confirmed the expected location for that upcoming overseas WWE Network LIVE special event on their Twitter account:
“The Super Dome in Jeddah is expected to host the upcoming WWE Show in Saudi Arabia”
The Tweet has since been deleted, so they probably released confidential information ahead of time.
The last time WWE promoted a show in Saudi Arabia was Super ShowDown 2020 on February 27, 2020, where WCW Legend Goldberg defeating Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in the main event to win the Title.
