Jinder Mahal is in the middle of the his best phase as a singles performer. The ‘Modern Day Maharja’ is the current WWE Champion and already boasts of two pay per view victories over Randy Orton.
Now the pair are set to battle in only the third ever Punjabi Prison match. Mahal will defend his title against Randy Orton in what should be the blow-off match in their feud. And with talks of the WWE touring India in September, there is a good chance that Jinder could return to his homeland as the WWE champion.
This is what Mahal had to say about possibly coming to India as the WWE champion.
“I know that I will be the WWE champion when the moment comes (WWE touring India) and I want to be in India with my people as champion,” Mahal told TOI Sports.
“I want to speak to my people in my language of Punjabi and it is not only me, all the WWE superstars are very excited to come back to India because the fans in India are very passionate and they showed their love and support the last time WWE was in India and the superstars can’t wait to for their next visit to the country,” said Mahal.
“I am very proud to be representing India. India fans are very passionate and are very special part of the WWE universe. I want to represent India in a good way; I want the whole country to be proud of me;
I want the whole country to be proud of the fact that an Indian is the WWE champion. It is not something that I take lightly. Every day I give my 100 per cent to make my people proud, my family proud and India proud and hopefully, I am doing a good job. The response has been great.
Social media, media everybody has been awesome and I am thankful for the support and I hope it continues because the more support my people give me, the harder I work,” he added.
