After spending months on 205 Live and WWE Main Event, Mansoor was officially welcomed to WWE Raw on Monday.
Mansoor made his debut against United States Champion Sheamus, in a bout that didn't quite go his way as Humberto Carrillo interfered.
Speaking to Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda, Mansoor revealed when he found out about his debut and watching his win streak fall thanks to Carrillo.
"It pretty much the day of," Mansoor said when asked when he was told he would be on Raw. "I had been going to the ThunderDome for the past couple of months and getting on Main Event, which was a real pleasure, working with guys like Drew Gulak and Akira Tozawa. I had a feeling that maybe I was being looked at to see if I was ready for a permanent transition onto Raw. That day, I got there and was wondering who I was gonna face and a member of the team came to me, shook my hand, and said, 'Hey, welcome to the team, kid.' I was completely and totally shell shocked. I always hoped that it would come one day and when it finally did, I was like, 'Wow, it's finally here after three years and however many years beforehand of preparing myself and training for this moment, it's come tonight.' It's been an amazing experience."
Mansoor had won 49 straight matches before his DQ loss on Monday and he is not pleased at how the streak came to an end.
"I could ask for Humberto Carrillo to wait like five or ten minutes," Mansoor said. "If I was going to lose, I wanted to lose like a man. I wanted to have a decisive ending to that match to determine who was the better competitor. How anticlimactic is that!? I'm trying not to get hot about it. I don't want to get mad at Humberto. Like, I get it. He was mad at Sheamus. Sheamus has been punking him and attacking him backstage and doing all these things for the past few weeks. Like, I get it. But you really couldn't have waited just a little longer?"
Mansoor said that he didn't know about the streak until someone pointed it out when he had gotten to around 30 wins. He believes the streak brought out an extra intensity in his opponents as they were all trying to break it.
