Mojo Rawley’s solo wins

When his partner Zack Ryder was out of the ring due to his knee injury, Mojo embarked on the singles run. He defeated Curt Hawkins. On the 24th January 2017 episode of ‘Smackdown’, Mojo won a battle royal and gained a spot in the 2017 Royal Rumble Match. However, after entering on number 4, he was eliminated by Braun Strowman. On the Elimination Chamber pre-show, he managed to defeat Hawkins. Mojo Rawley then made the announcement that he would take part in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal in the Live episode of Smackdown on 7th March 2017. On the 14th March 2017 of Smackdown Live, Mojo defeated Dolph Ziggler. On the Wrestlemania 33 kickoff show, Mojo Rawley came out victorious winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal with the last elimination of Jinder Mahal. His best friend NFL player Rob Gronkowski was present at the WrestleMania 33 and he entered the ring to assist his friend and thus helped him win the match.

Mojo Rawley and Rob Gronkowski’s music video

Rob Gronkowski and Mojo Rawley had paired up with 3LAU’s (Justin Blau) new music video titled ‘On my mind’. Talking about this new video to US Weekly, Justin Blau had said:

“I played a show in Houston two nights before this year’s Super Bowl, and was hanging with Rob and his brothers beforehand; I’ve grown close with his whole crew since we first met in a club in Ohio,” 

He added:

“I played my new single ‘On My Mind’ off a Bluetooth speaker and everyone seemed to really love it. That’s when I jokingly suggested that Rob should star in the music video. To my surprise, he got superexcited and told me that he’d always wanted to try something different like that!”

The profits from this song sales and streams would go to 3LAU’s charity label, BLUME, which in turn would donate the proceeds to ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).

Mojo Rawley does not get what he deserves!

In Spite of making some extraordinary wins, Mojo Rawley was not given the push up the card! He was also not booked for a match on 21st May 2017 Smackdown exclusive Backlash pay-per-view in Chicago. Mojo Rawley took to Twitter to express his disappointment at that time. He had said:

“Undefeated in Singles Action on @WWE#SDLive. Undefeated in PPV Pre-Shows. Won 3 Battle Royals this year. Not on #Backlash. Ready for #MITB.”

It is heartening to know that our great new hero is quite upbeat about his performance and the likelihood of being selected the next time. It is also good that his partner has now returned to boost Mojo Rawley and both want to venture into completing their unfinished business.

Praises showered on Mojo Rawley

In the most recent episode of Steve Austin Show- Unleashed, Steve Austin has praised Mojo Rawley and appreciated his promo skills. He said:

“Just as far as the charisma of this guy, he’s got something…he’s got a real ease with words and I thought the way he presented them came off as organic as hell.’

Steve Austin said that he was happy to see Zack Ryder’s comeback. He also added that though it is a little too early to say that Mojo Rawley is the next big star in WWE, there are high chances that it may come out to be true. He asked the learners to see how effortlessly Mojo Rawley pulls it off even when he has not been around for a while.
