Jinder Mahal wants to be celebrated like Drew McIntyre. The former WWE Champion compared his own title run with Drew McIntyre’s reign.
Former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal is not pleased with the way he has been treated. He is demanding respect for the accomplishments he has achieved in the past and is not taking kindly to those that dismiss his success. So much so, that he’s willing to drag his friend, Drew McIntyre into it.
While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, the Modern Day Maharaja compared his stint with McIntyre’s and revealed that he had a problem with how differently they were treated. Mahal demanded equality and wanted people to celebrate him just as mych as well.
Jinder Mahal wants to be celebrated like Drew McIntyre
“So, my problem is not with Drew my problem is with the idea that Drew McIntyre was celebrated as a champion like he overcame such enormous odds. Let’s back it up. Me and Drew were a part of 3MB together. Me and Drew got released the exact same day. I made it back to WWE faster, better, I became WWE Champion faster than Drew McIntyre, yet I wasn’t celebrated; I was called the experiment or whatever, I don’t have a book right now.
“Drew has a book. Drew is doing media nonstop. You know, this is like one of the only times I’ve done media in the last few months. Why am I not celebrated the same way Drew McIntyre is celebrated? Our stories are parallel. Just because you don’t hear about my hardships in life doesn’t mean I’ve had an easy route to the WWE or becoming WWE Champion. I’ve had just as many challenges Drew has had, yet I’m not acknowledged.”
If I didn’t become WWE champion, Drew wouldn’t have
Mahal went on to add that if it were not for him, McIntyre would have never found the motivation to achieve what he’s had today.
“So my problem is not with Drew, it’s the idea that Drew is celebrated. Why am I not celebrated? I did it in better fashion than Drew. I bet if I didn’t become WWE champion, Drew wouldn’t have. You know why because I showed him the way. You know the story of the four-minute mile, I believe or whatever. No one had ever ran a mile in four minutes until one person did. As soon as that one person did, many hundreds of people have done it ever since.
“So I showed Drew the way I laid the blueprint down for Drew. Drew followed the same game plan that I did. Come back, best shape possible, target the biggest guy, make an impact. But here we are. I’m injured. I’m on the sidelines. Drew is celebrated. How do you think that makes me feel? You talk about what motivated me through the rehab? Drew McIntyre motivated me in a different way than I motivated him.”
