REPORT: WWE star being used to teach Veer Mahaan

For months, WWE was hyping the arrival of Veer Mahaan on Monday Night Raw and it turned into a meme of “Veer is coming” after airing the same vignette so many times.

Since his arrival, WWE has been booking him as a strong heel and destroying his opponents including Rey and Dominik Mysterio.

At the June 18th WWE house show in Rapid City, South Dakota, Mahaan picked up a win over Robert Roode. This was done because WWE has specifically chosen Roode to work with Mahaan so he can ‘teach’ him.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE views Roode as someone who can be a good teacher for Mahaan.

Meltzer wrote, “they [WWE] are doing this match on all the house shows event though both are heels, basically with the idea of Roode being able to be a good teacher for Mahaan.”

A few weeks ago, it was reported that WWE had paired Roode up with Omos for a similar reason, so it’s clear that WWE thinks highly of Roode as a veteran worker. After being off television since April, Roode and Ziggler returned to television a few weeks ago to confront Omos and MVP, but they’ve since vanished again.
