When it comes to the television side of things, Haven and Vikings were his biggest projects. Adding to the list, he will be playing a recurring role in the upcoming Disney Plus exclusive series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
The Rated-R Superstar made a shocking return to WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble. He also entered the 2021 30-Men Royal Rumble at number one and won the whole thing. Unfortunately, he was unable to win gold at WrestleMania.
