Ending almost a year-long wait, India’s Veer Mahaan created an instant impact when he made his debut on Monday Night Raw last week. The show featured the Indian wrestler attacking the father-son duo of Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
Going into the fresh segment, Mahaan was scheduled to fight against Rey, however, he ended up in the ring against his son Dominik. The Indian made a quick work of his opponent as the match didn’t last for ten minutes.
Even after the match, Mahaan continued his assault on Dominik, forcing the WWE officials to intervene. Dominik was later stretchered out of the arena.
Meanwhile, going into the new segment it was promoted that Mahaan would be up against Rey, with the fans expecting the latter to get some revenge over the vicious attack on him and his son.
However, there was no sign of Rey both during or after the match.
