After weeks of speculation it appears that a star from Monday Night Raw is now back in NXT.

On September 25th it was reported that Veer Mahaan had been sent back to NXT. A report that was given further credence when then star appeared at an NXT live event alongside his former tag team partner Sanga.

Following the October 4th episode of NXT it appears that the move may be permanent. Sanga was seen backstage talking to Nathan Frazer before Veer interrupted. Although neither man spoke, they shared a brief stare down, before Veer broke into a smirk as the segment ended.

Veer signed with WWE in January 2018 and soon began teaming with Sanga under the name Indus Sher. However, it was wasn’t until the WWE Draft in October 2021 that Veer’s stock began to rise.

It was announced that Veer would be heading to Monday Night Raw, except his journey appeared to be longer than anyone previously anticipated. As the weeks and months ticked by, Veer failed to appear on the red brand, that is despite vignettes continuing to hype his debut.

The longer his absence lasted, the more fans got behind him and by the time that he finally debuted the night after WrestleMania 38 he was a firm favourite. Despite this the star quickly fell from favour and has only wrestled once in Raw since June. His final match coming on August 15th.
