WWE has brought a lot of people in from other sports that did very well. The Rock is arguably the greatest sports entertainer to step foot inside the squared circle after coming from the football world. Mojo Rawley was hyped to arrive in the WWE Performance Center after a run in the NFL and he really made a lot of noise in NXT that caused his main roster call-up.
After being teamed up with Zack Ryder and then eventually turning on the Broski, Rawly squashed his former Hype Bro tag team partner and then kind of disappeared. Mojo is still on the RAW roster, but he is seldom seen.
Dave Meltzer once noted on Wrestling Observer Radio how Mojo Rawley has to be frustrated because he didn’t come to WWE from football so he could be a mid-card guy. It has been suggested that Mojo would benefit greatly from leaving WWE to find a bigger name for himself on the indies before possibly coming back.
It appears he’s going to remain in WWE for a while, so hopefully, they are keeping him around for a reason. Mojo’s current contract has him locked into a deal until 2020. At that time, we will just have to see what happens with him.
