Veer ruffled the feathers on RAW recently when he attacked Rey and his son and took them out single-handedly. The crowd cheered Veer when he made his entry inside the ring.

He then slammed Rey in the middle of the ring, a move which took him out for good and then put on a submission maneuver on Dominik, making him tap out.

Here's how fans are reacting to Veer's entry to WWE. 



Veer's entry to the RAW roster was announced last year in October. He has wrestled in singles matches on WWE's Main Event show over the last few months. As per Sports Keeda, Veer debuted on the main roster last year when he formed an alliance with Jinder Mahal and Shanky on WWE RAW. The trio was split in the Draft last year, with Mahaan drafted to RAW while the other two were drafted to SmackDown.

Veer has previously featured in Million Dollar Arm movie and other reality shows. He was signed by WWE in January 2018 after a stint with the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball organisation, as per wrestlinginc. At one point he was known as Rinku of the WWE NXT tag team Indus Sher. 

After The Great Khali, Veer seems like he could be the next big Indian wrestling star. He certainly has the muscles for it. He looks in good form in his RAW debut and his rivalry with the Mysterio family may get him the limelight for the initial start of his career.
