Bengaluru, April 20: On the last episode of Smackdown Live, the WWE Universe was shocked to see Jinder Mahal came out as the number one contender for the WWE championship, out of nowhere. This guy was literally lost in lacklustre storylines while in Raw.
But, his luck is about to change after he was shifted to Smackdown Live via the Superstar Shakeup.
The Indian-origin superstar defeated five other top guys from the locker room to emerge victorious in the six-pack challenge held on Tuesday Night’s show.
He was helped by another Indian Duo, Bollywood Boyz who are his real-life brothers named Gurv Sihra and Harv Sihra.
Apparently, these three will soon team up together on the blue brand to become a dominant heel faction.
As you can guess, a major push is reserved for the talented wrestler. Jinder Mahal’s family was once a resident of India but later moved to Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
He picked up the nack of wrestling from there. He signed with the WWE almost a decade back but never got the big break, until now.
The reason behind this abrupt push is due to WWE intending to serve more in the subcontinent. Indian wrestling fans are always starved for the new contents that the company comes up with.
WWE has understood that India does have a huge fanbase to cater and they are making expansion plans, going forward.
As reported by wrestlingnews.co, Sheetesh Srivastava was appointed as the General Manager and Vice-President for WWE’s office in India, recently.
He previously worked with Walt Disney India and will be in-charge for the upcoming schedule of WWE in our country.
In case you don’t know, WWE has made two of their biggest marketing products WWE Network and the WWEShop.com available in India with the same goal of winning over the audience, here. The country needs a hero to whom they can look up to and Mahal is supposed to get the role.
As for the new future goes for him, the WWE Shop will be filled with Jinder Mahal and the Bollywood Boyz merchandise, soon.
Jinder will compete in his biggest match of his wrestling career at the upcoming Backlash PPV.
He will go on against the veteran WWE performer, Randy Orton for the WWE championship (If only Randy holds the title after the Payback PPV).
