4 – Mojo Rawley
Mojo Rawley is quite the interesting subject among WWE fans. On the one hand, you have the people who just love that exuberant enthusiasm that comes along with him and believe he’s a joy to watch work and highly entertaining. Then you have the people who are so annoyed at the way Mojo carries himself they drift off when he starts talking, daydreaming of how much more joyful they would be if they stabbed themselves in the ears with a pencil.
Whatever your thoughts on this man, though, it’s fairly obvious that WWE loves him — which is what matters the most in the end. He was brought up to the main roster as part of the draft last year, a little too soon for some, and they’ve done all they can to feature him in some capacity. Even after his Hype Bros. partner Zack Ryder suffered a sever knee injury, Mojo wasn’t put on the backburner, which is telling in some ways as well.
Then there’s the argument that I’ve used from time to time to explain to the Mojo haters why the company may love him so much. The former football player just so happens to be very good friends with one of the most polarizing football players on the planet at the moment, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. You know, the same Gronk who went all Ric Flair on Mojo recently to pump him up for the battle royal. Being tight with Gronk surely has the company seeing some pretty lucrative appearances in the future, maybe even at Orlando on Apr. 2 to celebrate with his friend.
Like it or not, there may be some bigger plans for Mojo down the line. While they may not be ready to slap a title on him just yet, an impressive win in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal as an accolade might be a good way to start.
