Mojo Rawley Excited To Do 'Everything' Following WWE Release
Rawley was let go by WWE in April
Mojo Rawley has expressed his excitement at being able to do everything he's ever wanted to following his release from WWE.
Rawley - real name Dean Muhtadi - was let go by WWE in April as a part of the company's budget cuts, having been with the promotion since 2012.
The 34-year-old is relishing the possibility of trying his hand at different ventures, saying he's opened a company with a couple of friends and is also playing the stock market once again.
Rawley is also targeting more acting opportunities and says he expects he will return to the wrestling world in the near future also.
In an interview with TMZ Sports he said: "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.
"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.
"I'm definitely going to get more into the acting space. 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."
