If I remember correctly, they wanted to but he didn't want to change his gimmick. They couldn't come to an agreement, so he got released and left wrestling to become a teacher. Still reeks of wasted potential, though. Dude could've been a big star. I don't understand why they didn't just send him back to Raw. From what I understand, the issue was that UPN had a problem with him being on their network. Spike TV evidently had no such issue because he was doing more or less the same shit on there for months without incident. I remember the stipulation being "if Muhammad Hassan loses, he'll never show his face on Smackdown again." Even my 10-11 year old brain was able to register that they specified Smackdown and there was no reason he couldn't be on Raw.
