As reported on our news board yesterday afternoon, former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal will once again have to stay off the scene because of a knee injury, which has already led him to come out of WWE TV screens for a few months.
The Indian superstar will have to be absent for a few months from the WWE in-ring action, with a prognosis that at the moment is still quite doubtful and that could lead the former absolute champion of the company to remain in the pits even for most of the rest of the year.
Jinder Mahal was going to feud over WWE title
Apparently, according to reports from numerous online sources, first of all, the well-known American site Wrestle Talk, the leadership of WWE would have been so forced to do without a huge feud that had been planning for some time, with the two protagonists who would respond to the names of Drew McIntyre and precisely the former member of the 3MB together with the champion, Jinder Mahal.
According to what is reported by the well-known wrestling site, in fact, Paul Heyman and all his crew of Monday Night Raw, are currently trying to plug the hole that was created with the exit of the scene of the Indian, who was supposed to be one of the key parts of the red show main event for the next two months at least.
In an update of the site, in fact, it is reported that: "Paul Heyman had big plans for Jinder Mahal in his brand and there were big plans that saw him in a feud with his former teammate Drew McIntyre with the WWE Championship at stake in an unspecified moment of the near future."
Apparently the feud between Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley, it would have been only a fallback that WWE and Paul Heyman would have found in order to continue the WWE Champion storyline, with Drew who would have had to feud with Jinder Mahal and not with the assisted of MVP, but with the bad luck that has raged once again against the McMahon company, already abundantly unfortunate in the last pandemic period.
Jinder Mahal was released from the company in June 2014. Mahal returned to WWE two years later with a dramatically improved physique and received a push following WrestleMania 33, culminating in a win over Randy Orton at Backlash in May 2017 for the WWE Championship.
Mahal thus became the 50th WWE Champion and the first wrestler of Indian descent to win the WWE Championship. After losing the title in November 2017, he later won the WWE United States Championship at the 34th edition of WWE's flagship pay-per-view event WrestleMania in April 2018. The following year, he captured the WWE 24/7 Championship twice in June 2019.
