As previously reported, Jinder Mahal was originally scheduled to face Brock Lesnar at Sunday’s Survivor Series event, however those plans were changed when the company decided to put the WWE Championship Title on AJ Styles.

Dave Meltzer discussed the recent change in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter and speculated that Mahal could now end up interfering in the match to cost Styles a victory over Lesnar on the show. This would be an out that would allow the WWE Champion to save face rather than losing clean to the Universal Champion. Ideally the company wants to keep Brock strong for his rumored WrestleMania match against Roman Reigns next year.
