Mojo Rawley (Dean Muhtadi) Says There Was Talks Of New League Of Nations With Cesaro And Nakamura

On June 5, 2020, Mojo Rawley teamed with Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura in a six-man tag team bout on SmackDown, losing to Shorty G & The New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston).

It was the only time the trio teamed together, but according to Mojo (Dean Muhtadi), there was talks of moving forward with the group in a more established roled.

"My most recent Mania, I'm doing the heel thing and I tagged with Cesaro and [Shinsuke Nakamura]. They liked that. They were talking about that being a new League of Nations and I was going to be the mouthpiece of it. Who knows how much that was going to be a thing. I'm doing my heel work, then the 24/7 stuff was around there, then I moved SmackDown and I was immediately hyped up babyface to bring in Rob and we had big plans that didn't materialize because of the pandemic he went back to football. They put me right back to being a heel immediately and I was flip-flopping every week," Mojo recalled to Chris Hero in Shoot Conversations.

The League of Nations was a short-lived group from November 2015 to April 2016 consisting of Sheamus, Alberto del Rio, Rusev (Miro in AEW), and King Barrett (Wade Barrett).

Mojo and Hero joked that Mojo was doing a post-concussion syndrome character. Mojo smiled replied by saying, "We can make that a character too. Let's embrace it. We gotta run with something."

Mojo would work one more match for WWE, losing to Shorty G (Chad Gable) on the June 19 episode of SmackDown.

He was released by the company on April 15. He has since found a new home, picking up a gig with TMZ Sports.
