Mansoor came up to WWE Raw on May 3, answering Sheamus' open challenge. Sheamus ended up winning the match by DQ, which ended Mansoor's 49-match win streak.
Writing a column with Arab News, Mansoor discussed his call-up and potential changes that could be coming to him and his character.
"We are working on my image — new music, new logos etc. — because now I have been introduced, it is important to establish my character on the show. To do all of that on a huge stage such as RAW is a little intimidating, but very exciting," he wrote. "I am growing, learning and having these huge life experiences, and it is bizarre to think about how crazy this journey has been. The transition from performing on NXT to performing on RAW or SmackDown is so big. To even appear on the show once puts you in such an exclusive club so I take it as a privilege. One of the things WWE said is they would like me to put on some muscle mass, and right now I am working with Sheamus’s personal trainer, who has been really helpful. I am counting my macronutrients and calories, and recording all of my reps and sets in the gym. It is crazy how much difference writing stuff down and tracking it makes."
On Monday's WWE Raw, Mansoor was confronted by Mustafa Ali, who told him to be careful about making friends.
