Wrestling star Mansoor Al Shehail has revealed on Instagram that he is now a married man.

Al Shehail, 25, is the first athlete from Saudi Arabia to ever compete in the globally renowned WWE, which he does using just his first name.

He uploaded a photo on Tuesday with the caption: “Here’s to forever.”

No other details about the nuptials have been revealed.

While he didn’t tag his wife, other posts show that he’s been in a relationship with designer Mia Carey for some time.

The couple and their two dogs live in Orlando, Florida, US, which is also home to the WWE Performance Centre, where newly signed wrestlers often train to hone their skills.

The WWE team also congratulated Al Shehail on the news via the company's website.

"Mansoor has battled for his dreams throughout his WWE tenure with a blockbuster 51-Man Battle Royal win at WWE SuperShowdown and an impressive streak of victories on 205 Live," reads the article.

"Now, the Scrappy Superstar has realised another with his latest announcement.

"WWE Digital wishes the happy couple a wonderful future together."

Who is WWE superstar Mansoor?

Al Shehail made his WWE debut in 2018 after taking part in a tryout in Jeddah. He was picked along with seven other competitors to sign a contract with the company.

He made his in-ring debut later that year in an NXT live event. Since then, he's enjoyed career highlights during WWE events held in Saudi Arabia, where he is currently undefeated.

In 2019, Al Shehail won the 51-Man Battle Royal at WWE’s Super ShowDown event in Jeddah. Later that year, at Crown Jewel, he defeated Cesaro in a one-on-one match. Returning to Riyadh for the 2020 Super ShowDown event, he also defeated Dolph Ziggler in a singles match.

In an interview with The National in 2019, he talked about how it felt to be the first person from his home country to compete on this level in the sport.

“It feels amazing, but it’s also sort of the same pressure I felt when I originally got picked to be a WWE superstar. It’s like, ‘Wow my dreams are coming true – this is the best feeling of my life’, but there’s also the pressure of expectations placed on my shoulders,” he said.

“It’s a weight that I’m both happy with and struggling to bear, because, when I grew up wanting to be a WWE superstar, I never really thought of it under the context of being the first Saudi superstar, so that’s a whole other historical weight that is added to the pressure.”
