Jinder Mahal, the current WWE champion of Indian origin has been champion since May 21st. He has defeated challengers like Randy Orton and Shinshuke Nakamura, albeit controversially. He recently issued a challenge to Brock Lesnar. The WWE universe awaited the Beast’s reply. However, did WWE spoil Lesnar’s RAW segment?
During the TLC event, the promo video of Survivor Series was aired. It built up the conventional Raw vs Smackdown dynamic of this PPV. However, at the end of the video we could clearly see Mahal and Lesnar donning the blue and red colours respectively. Does this mean that WWE accidentally revealed Brock accepting Mahal’s challenge?
Amidst his celebrations following his victory over Shinshuke Nakamura at Hell in Cell, Jinder Mahal dropped a bombshell. He voiced his frustrations of not getting the same amount of respect in USA like he does in India. Facing and conquering insurmountable odds might help him earn that and what bigger challenge than Brock Lesnar!
It was also revealed that the Beast would answer the challenge on Raw. Even though it was a predictable reply, it seems locked in now following the airing of the video package. It looks like a Champion vs Champion bout which will go down at Survivor Series. Nevertheless, we still look forward to Lesnar’s RAW segment on Monday
Prediction for Survivor Series
Even though, Brock Lesnar is expected to squash Jinder Mahal on paper, rule the Maharaja out at your own peril. Time and again, he has overcome tough challengers with The Singh brothers firmly by his side. No one expected him to reign for so long but he has managed to, by hook or crook!
As per recent trends, Mahal will face Lesnar in a battle of brand supremacy. Following that, he will be defending the WWE title against Kevin Owens during the WWE live event in New Delhi. This event is scheduled to happen on December 8th and 9th.
