Mojo Rawley has finally received a main roster call-up after being drafted to SmackDown Live.

Mojo Rawley has been in NXT from 2012 and it has taken him a long time to get a main roster call-up, a call-up that many thought would never come. Rawley’s pro wrestling career hasn’t been smooth sailing and his singles push in NXT fell flat on its face with his career, only picking up steam after he teamed up with Zack Ryder to form the Hype Bros.

Rawley finally got his call-up to SmackDown Live last week during the WWE Draft and will be joining fellow Hype Bro, Zack Ryder. Rawley also introduced himself to the WWE Universe when he ran out at WWE Battleground to save Ryder from Rusev’s post-match attack. With the Hype Bros set to reunite on SmackDown Live, let’s take a closer look at Mojo Rawley.
