Mojo Rawley is excited about what the future holds.
After signing with WWE in 2012, Mojo (real name Dean Muhtadi) was released by the company on April 15, 2021. Speaking with TMZ Sports, he shared what he's most looking forward to doing now that he's not restricted by a contract.
"Well, I can tell you that after WWE, the thing that I'm most excited about is that I can do everything now. When you're under contract with the WWE, that's your gig. You can't really operate outside of the company. Now I can do everything. I don't have to be known as just one thing. I can do it all," Mojo said.
In addition to dabbling in the financial sector, Rawley boasted about a new talent management group that he and his friends started. He says that they are helping people who are in-between gigs market themselves and help them find new and exciting job opportunities. He added the following:
"I have time now to focus on the stock market and trading because that's what my background's in. I even started a company with a couple of my buddies, The Paragon Talent Group, which is actually here to assist people with what I'm going through right now. Because a lot of guys, once they leave professional wrestling, they don't know what's next. Especially after leaving the WWE, they don't know what to do next. They don't know how to represent themselves. They come from this wrestling bubble and that's it. So, we're here to kind of assist people with the transition, to market them, to get them new gigs and, you know. in all aspects of life and just be there for them. Coming from a guy who's going through the same thing it's been great to continue to work with my buddies and whatnot."
As far as his wrestling career goes, Mojo intends on returning to the ring, although not immediately. He says that when he does come back, it's going to be a big surprise and a very exciting day for him.
"Definitely going to get more into the acting space," Rawley began. "I will return to the wrestling world. Not immediately. We're going to hype that one up pretty good. Right now we're just going to take some time and enjoy this freedom and do a little bit of everything. Dabble and just set things up. You better believe when I come back to wrestling it's going to be hyped up and it's going to be a big surprise for everybody. That's going to be a very, very exciting day for me."
