Mansoor says he will be in action at the upcoming Super ShowDown event.
In an interview with the Arab News, Mansoor said he will be competing at the show, taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It will be the third time Mansoor competes at a WWE show in Saudi Arabia. During the interview, Mansoor spoke about how he'll come into the show with a little more notoriety compared to when he faced Cesaro last year at Crown Jewel, which also took place in Saudi Arabia.
"That’s very true. I was very much depending on that, and Cesaro even said ‘I don’t know who this kid is.’ There are no real videos of me to watch, to see what I can do, compared to the years that I can watch of Cesaro. I know I will be competing at Super Showdown, but I haven’t found out who my opponent will be yet. But I get the feeling that now it’s going to be a bit more of an even playing field, where both of us are going to be able to feel each other out and see what we’re going into," Mansoor said.
Mansoor wrestled at last year's edition of Super ShowDown, winning a battle royal by eliminating Elias at the end of the match. Since then, Mansoor has made sporadic appearances on television, competing on NXT and 205 Live.
