When wrestlers are released from World Wrestling Entertainment, they tend to go one of three ways; those with experience on the independent scene before their time in WWE may well head back there, renewing contact with past bookers and promotions. Some leave the sport altogether, feeling that once the WWE dream is over there's not much else to achieve.
Some with little indy experience find themselves moving into the scene post-WWE however, and Jinder Mahal was one of these. He was a little lost to begin with, and as such had to reach out to those who had experienced similar things after being released.
Step forward Mason Ryan. It was Ryan who Mahal spoke to first after his release, and the big Welshman told him to set up an email and various social media things immediately. To Mahal's surprise, the bookings began rolling in almost instantly.
