Los Angeles: With an eye on India fan base, WWE has been teasing the Monday Night Raw debut of an Indian pro-wrestler, Veer Mahaan on its Twitter handle. The wrestling company took to their official Twitter handle multiple times and teased Veer’s singles debut at the Monday Night Raw.
The 33-year-old Veer made his WWE debut in 2018, as a part of the tag team Indus Sher with the ring name, Rinku Singh. Following his main roster debut, he teamed up with Jinder Mahal and Shanky while his name changed to Veer. The stable of Jinder, Shanky, and Veer was separated during the WWE Drafts 2021, where Shanky and Jinder Mahal went to the SmackDown, while Veer Mahaan remained under the Raw brand.
Veer Mahaan was born in Uttar Pradesh, India, where he grew up with his family in poverty. He won a pitching contest on a 2008 reality TV show, The Million Dollar Arm, and was roped in by the Pittsburgh Pirates organization. He went on to become the first Indian to play professional baseball as he spent several seasons playing in the minor league, reaching the Single-A level, before getting signed by WWE in 2018.
In his WWE career of a little over three years, Veer Mahaan has appeared in various WWE events and shows on a total of 70 occasions.
