Jinder Mahal was one of the key WWE stars during the 2010s. However, he’d never really popped off, a trend that continues even today. Last week, Mahal landed in the crosshairs of The Rock, who hit him with a barrage of roasts before actually hitting him with the People’s Elbow.
During his latest appearance on Monday Night Raw this week, Mahal came across Seth Rollins. During his altercation with the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Mahal pointed out that he had been overlooked for too long, but now this is his moment. While Rollins agreed with him, the Modern Day Maharaja landed a clothesline.
This led to a skirmish between the two. While Rollins almost ended it with a Stomp finisher, Mahal managed to roll out of the ring. In the segment that was recorded after the event, Mahal was asked about his reasons and objectives for going after Rollins. Mahal said that his objective is to ‘regain respect.’
“It is my objective to regain respect. It’s my objective to no longer be overlooked. Overlooked by the WWE Universe, overlooked by the World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. Let me remind you, as a reminder, the WWE Universe, I’m a former WWE Champion, the greatest WWE Champion of all time.”
He further said that he wants to take Rollins’ spot at the upcoming WrestleMania mega event. This comes after he expressed disappointment over not being on the cards for WrestleMania. He said that after he wins the WWE Heavyweight Championship, he’ll have the power to expose, enlighten, and speak the truth.
“Now, Seth Rollins dreams of headlining WrestleMania, but the reality is, I will regain championship gold, and this year’s WrestleMania will be mine. And with the World Heavyweight Championship, I will be the one with a platform, and I will continue to expose, I will continue to enlighten, I will continue to speak the truth.”
It is not clear whether his WWE stint is going to pay off any better than it ever has“Now, Seth Rollins dreams of headlining WrestleMania, but the reality is, I will regain championship gold, and this year’s WrestleMania will be mine. And with the World Heavyweight Championship, I will be the one with a platform, and I will continue to expose, I will continue to enlighten, and I will continue to speak the truth.”
Jinder Mahal might be sizing up the wrong opponent, as it seems unlikely for Seth Rollins to lose out on the Heavyweight title to him after such a long time. What do you think about Mahal’s comments? Let us know in the comments.
