Daivari made his WWE debut on December 13, 2004, on RAW alongside Muhammad Hassan. Their gimmick was that of two Arab-Americans who were tired of the prejudice and racism they were receiving after the 9/11 attacks. In the weeks leading up to their debut, the two men would appear on Raw in vignettes promoting their hatred towards America. In the following weeks, they would both up their words with actions, initiating a feud with Raw announcers Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler.
Daivari would continue his ECW winning streak over the next several weeks with The Great Khali usually following up the contest with a chokebomb on Daivari's opponent. At December to Dismember, Daivari got a victory over Tommy Dreamer following a schoolboy rollup. Dreamer then chased Daivari all the way to the back then, The Great Khali appeared and caught Dreamer, planting him on the steel ramp with a chokebomb. On January 8, 2007, The Great Khali debuted on RAW, without Daivari. The following night, however, Daivari accompanied Khali to the ring for his match with Dreamer on ECW.
Daivari returned to SmackDown! on February 9, 2007, defeating the Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms in a non-title match.
He has been wrestling in the Cruiserweight division since then, and has not been managing. He is the first male manager turn full time wrestler in WWE history, if you don't count Scott Levy aka Raven who managed in the WWE as Johnny Polo and later returned to the WWE as a full time wrestler.
He was involved in a feud between Kane and The Great Khali once again promoting the Great Khali in March 2007. His first match against Kane, he was dragged backstage by Kane's chain and hook leaving his back with multiple bruises. A few weeks later, Daivari had a rematch with Kane once again being defeated.
Daivari returned to Smackdown a few months later teaming up with Chavo Guerrero and Jamie Noble against Paul London, Brian Kendrick and Jimmy Wang Yang in a losing effort. On the June 15, 2007 edition of Smackdown, Daivari competed in a Fatal Four Way number 1 contenders match for the Cruiserweight Championship, which he lost to Jimmy Wang Yang and also involved Shannon Moore and Jamie Noble.
Daivari was drafted back to RAW in the Supplemental Draft on June 17, 2007. He re-debuted on the June 18, 2007 edition of Raw, losing to Jeff Hardy
