More Details On Veer Coming.....To WWE Raw

We have some information on Veer coming.

Since October, WWE has aired vignettes for Veer coming to WWE Raw, where he actually already was. Fightful learned that there was "no real rhyme or reason" behind splitting Veer from Jinder Mahal and Shanky, and for a while, many thought he would just be inexplicably moved back to Smackdown to join them. WWE sources we spoke to said that WWE officials have generally thought he had the most upside of either of his pairings, whether it be with Saurav or Shanky.

As to where Veer has been....he's been at Raw. Since October, Veer has appeared on several episodes of WWE Main Event, beating Cedric Alexander, T-Bar and John Morrison. He's also been at episodes of Raw in which he was not booked for, we're told. As far as creative plans, Fightful was told that as of the time the videos began airing there were no "significant creative plans in place for Veer or his debut." We're not sure if that has changed since then, but we're also told by WWE sources they are self aware of the comedic nature behind stretching this out.
