Mojo Rawley recently appeared as a guest on the Shoot Conversations podcast with fellow pro wrestling veteran Chris Hero.
During his appearance on the program, the former WWE Superstar spoke about how the company once had plans for him to team up with Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura prior to WrestleMania 36.
According to Rawley, the pandemic and WWE’s use of Rob Gronkowski ended up seeing those plans get nixed.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
“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.”
