Mojo Rawley is getting the itch to wrestle again.

The former WWE star was among the people released by the company in April 2021. Though he has been away from the ring since even before that.

Rawley’s last match came during the June 19, 2020 edition of WWE SmackDown. He had a singles match against Chad Gable. Gable who was then known as Shorty G ended up picking the victory in this match from the Performance Center.

Mojo Rawley wants to wrestle again

The former 24/7 Champion recently spoke to ITRWrestling.com. During the interview, he mentioned how he got COVID after his last WWE match and he hasn’t wrestled since. According to Mojo Rawley, he is now getting the itch again:

‘Man, I’m getting that itch brother. And I’ve had that itch since my last match with WWE, which as crazy as it is to say, was almost three years ago.

Obviously that first year I was knocked flat on my back with COVID. Man, there was no chance I could have wrestled the match no matter how hard I tried or no matter, how good of a stretch I had a day a week, maybe even a month of feeling like I was coming out of that thing before it would just crash back down.”

The former NXT star revealed that he has gotten other opportunities that has kept him busy since his release. However, he has still missed the world of pro wrestling:

“But yeah, I’ve had these other really cool opportunities that have been keeping me busy. Financially, it’s been better for me. So, it’s been hard to you know, cut back on those situations that are making me more money [laughs] than I was before even but yeah, I missed it, bro.”
