Dean Muhtadi, better known as Mojo Rawley, a former WWE superstar, recently shared an interesting anecdote from his time working for the company on Twitter. He uncovered that one of his pitches to the WWE imaginative group, including naming his fan following, was dismissed before he could complete his sentence.
Muhtadi intended to engage the audience by yelling, "Where my Raw Dawgs at?" and calling his followers "Raw Dawgs." during his ring entry. Sadly, his concept was never realized. Dignitary Muhtadi was endorsed with WWE in 2012 and wrestled under Magic Rawley until his delivery in April 2021.
Muhtadi was a tag team member known as Hype Bros with former WWE Superstar Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder. During his tenure, Muhtadi held the 24/7 Championship title seven times. As a tag team, the duo had a successful two-year run.
Winning the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal match at the 2017 WrestleMania 33 kickoff show was one of Muhtadi's significant WWE accomplishments. He also participated in the match at WrestleMania 34 in 2018, where the current All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star Matt Hardy won.
Rawley's WWE Departure Details
On an episode of "SmackDown" on June 15, 2020, Mojo Rawley faced Chad Gable in his final WWE match, which he lost. With AEW's Samoa Joe, Impact Wrestling's Mickie James, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, and Chelsea Green, Muhtadi was let go from WWE.
Interestingly, Green has since rejoined WWE and competed at WrestleMania 39 on Saturday. Despite his departure from WWE, Dean Muhtadi has continued to be involved in the entertainment industry. He now co-hosts on TMZ Sports, discussing various sports-related topics and offering his thoughts.
As the co-founder of Paragon Talent Group, a company that aims to assist aspiring athletes and entertainers in realizing their goals, Muhtadi has also ventured into talent management. Mojo Rawley's WWE career was not without highs and lows, but his journey has been fascinating.
The story of how his proposal to use the name "Raw Dawgs" was turned down provides a glimpse into the creative process and the difficulties wrestlers face when attempting to create a distinctive and memorable persona in the world of professional wrestling.
