WWE has a few people on the roster who are waiting medical clearance. Sometimes that medical clearance can take more time than they first thought.
Jinder Mahal has been out of action with a knee injury since June. He was supposed to be back already, but for some reason, nobody’s seen the Modern Day Maharaja.
Fightful reports that Mahal was originally expected to be back on November 1st. At least, that is when he was marked as returning on WWE’s injury report. At this time the report hasn’t been updated to reflect any change in Jinder Mahal’s status.
Jinder Mahal has received a sudden push to the top of the WWE roster in the past. You can never rule out WWE holding off on his return so he can make a big comeback later on. We’ll just have to see what WWE’s plan might be for Mahal.
