Indian wrestler Veer Mahaan successfully added another win to his undefeated run on WWE Monday Night Raw, by winning against Mustafa Ali with his signature cervical match on the May 16 episode. The 33-year-old has become a highlight of the Red Brand, ever since he made his singles TV debut in April. However, after his match against Ali, Mahaan suffered an unwarned attack at the hands of Ray Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio, who were making their return, following an injury hiatus.

Although this was the first time Veer got taken down by someone on the show, it is worth noting that Veer had attacked the Mysterios on his TV debut before badly injuring Dominik. In his first official match in WWE Raw, Mahaan demolished Dominik yet again, as the latter had to be carried out of the arena on a stretcher. Mahaan announced his arrival in a fantastic style and looks promising to be fighting for major titles soon.
