I imagine they brought him up to see if he could alongside Khali attract more middle eastern viewers, one would assume this hasn't been successful.
Also his ring work is decent but its not memorable and thats sad really given that I truly agree with you that his past work was really good.
Its the bar set by WWE standards where if you cant get a crowd behind you or get enough heat in a certain amount of time, can't cut a decent promo, sell merchandise, etc. within a few months of your WWE debut you won't go very far in the WWE nowadays.
Luckily he's liked by Vince so he may have a chance to bounce back and show he can truly live up to the company's expectations, so we'll see what happens.
