NXT Star introduces new ‘dark’ persona

Former Impact Wrestling Star Mahabali Shera made some headlines earlier this year when he reported to the WWE performance center in preparation of a WWE career.

The former Impact Wrestling Star made his WWE in-ring debut in March. He has been wrestling at NXT Live Events since then and it appears that he has been given a new gimmick.

WWE shared the following photo from NXT’s Instagram handle with the caption ‘@mahabalishera rises from the darkness in #NXTLakeland to compete tonight!’ which is likely an indication that he has been given a new, darker gimmick:

@mahabalishera rises from the darkness in #NXTLakeland to compete tonight!

Shera worked on Impact’s Indian project dubbed Ring Ka King in later 2011 and he later became the first Indian wrestler to sign with the company in 2014.

He reportedly left the company formerly known as TNA back in October 2017. Shera then competed in the indie circuit for a while before being signed by WWE in February earlier this year.

    If you were privy to the details as to why the NOLA Mayor removed the statues, then you would think otherwise.

    Lol no it wasn’t a terrorist act, obviously. Asking local government officials to remove a statue and them agreeing is about as far from terrorism as it gets.

  • Soulshroude

    Technically it was a terrorist act on our soil, by taking down National Historic Monuments. It doesn’t matter the “why”.

    If slavery was “part of the reason for the war” then that means my point is still valid. Thank you.

  • Get a clue

    If you really believe the civil war was about slavery, you should go read a book. Slavery was only part of the reason for the war.

  • Luke

    Yeahhhh let’s not pretend the “someone” who thinks “terrorist” when seeing a foreigner in a shawl is the same “someone” who wants statues honouring the pro-slavery side of the civil war taken down.

    *Your grammar’s dead.

    Apostrophes are important.

  • Soulshroude

    Yup…. just like with that “someone” taking down honored Confederate statues in the name of politics and “racism”.

  • Soulshroude

    Your grammars dead….

  • Nope

    islamic state? That sh*t dead.

  • Luke

    …which would be entirely the fault of that “someone”, wouldn’t it?

    Indian + shawl = terrorist is a pretty daft conclusion.

  • Soulshroude

    They best be careful with it, otherwise someone may consider him part of ISIS or a member of the ISLAMIC State.
