WWE is known to create some of the most interesting factions in an attempt to put over superstars as a cohesive unit. Moreover, the management also tends to put together teams based on former successful stables. Former WWE superstar Mojo Rawley recently revealed that WWE scrapped plans involving him and two other superstars to form a new ‘League of Nations.’
The League of Nations was a heel stable formed in November 2015, comprising Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Rusev, and Wade Barrett, all representing different countries and put together in one faction in an attempt to portray the combined strength of great nations. The stable managed to establish dominance during its short tenure.
The League of Nations ran as a strong unit, until April 2016 when the group disbanded and all four superstars went their separate ways. Former WWE superstar Mojo Rawley recently revealed that WWE nixed plans to form a similar faction with himself, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Cesaro. He spoke about this on 10 Count with Steve Fall.
“They were talking about me, Cesaro, and Shinsuke doing a new League of Nations thing, with me playing on the Arab background.”
Mojo Rawley further stated that the plans were scrapped due to real-life circumstances. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic was around and ruined a lot of plans.
“I believe that ran right into when I got COVID really bad and had to stop wrestling.”
Mojo Rawley was released by the WWE back in April 2021. Since then, he has not been seen inside the wrestling ring. Mojo currently works as a co-host of TMZ Sports and might take an interest to return to the squared circle in the near future.
