Drew McIntyre has become one of the most established WWE superstars in the recent years. While he has been paving his way around for a long time in the world of pro-wrestling, Jinder Mahal is of the opinion that he is responsible for teaching McIntyre a lot of things.
The Modern Day Maharaja was in a conversation with Fightful. Mahal claimed to have taught McIntyre a lot in the world of pro-wrestling. He also accused the Scottish Warrior of bragging about doing media, and added that every WWE superstar does it without any bragging.
I came to WWE before Drew. Came back. Became WWE Champion before Drew. Main evented all over the world before Drew. Did all this media before Drew. Now Drew touts himself as this great media machine and everything. Doesn’t stop talking about how much media he does. Guess what? We all do it. I was there. We all do it. We all have our turn. I’m still doing it. I just don’t advertise it.
Jinder Mahal added that all the confidence and style McIntyre has cultivated over the years came from his reign as the WWE Champion. He even went as far as to say “If there was no Modern Day Maharaja as WWE Champion, there would be no Drew McIntyre.“
You see Drew McIntyre wearing this suit. Where do you think he got his style from? The Maharaja, right? All the swagger, all this confidence. If there was no Modern Day Maharaja as WWE Champion, there would be no Drew McIntyre. I showed him the way. I showed him it was possible. I gave him the belief in himself.
Drew McIntyre has been seeking a fight with Brock Lesnar. On the other hand, Jinder Mahal is appearing on RAW next week for the King of the Ring semi-finals. Mahal recently went back at fans who claims that WWE has been unable to make new superstars.
