Drew McIntyre responds to Jinder Mahal’s gripe about their respective WWE Championship reigns. The Modern Day Maharaja said that he wanted to be celebrated like McIntyre.
Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal were part of 3MB. Both of them were released by the WWE and both of them returned to become the WWE Champions. However, Jinder Mahal’s run at the top was often crticized while McIntyre has been lauded and praised.
The Modern Day Maharaja came down heavily on his critics claiming that he laid the blueprint for McIntyre and he should be celebrated for his achivement just as well. On this week’s WWE’s The Bump, Drew McIntyre responded to Jinder Mahal’s comments.
Drew McIntyre responds to Jinder Mahal’s gripe about their respective WWE Championship reigns
“[Jinder] is one of my closest friends in the world but he has been a little bit off since he got hurt. We’ve not talked to each other or seen each other as much. So it’s interesting that that’s what’s been going on in his head.
“I guess, technically, he has a point. We got fired on the same day but we didn’t quite go the same path. I instantly got out there on the independent scene and reinvented myself.
“Jinder flew back under the radar and got signed back to WWE because of the brand split . . . He got himself in shape. He put the work in. I tell everyone you can do it within the system. Just bust your butt.”
McIntyre added that Mahal had legitimate reasons to be upset but was surprised by the outburst nonetheless and would talk to him this week.
“Look at Jinder, he got to the top and won the title. People weren’t exactly thrilled, but he did it in 2017. It did take me three years later [to win the WWE Championship]. People reacted positively to my journey so I guess he has a legitimate gripe.
“I’m kind of surprised to see that and honestly he’s been at RAW the last couple of weeks and he’s kinda been ducking me. I’m gonna find him this week and have a little chat. Seems like there’s a little bit of tension going on here”
