We noted before how the original plans for this week’s episode of SmackDown Live were for Jinder Mahal to challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.
However, the company nixed these plans sometime in the past couple of days and decided to have this rematch take place at a later date.
And during the latest episode of the Blue Branded Show, it was revealed that Jinder will be invoking his rematch clause at the upcoming Clash Of Champions PPV.
The PPV is scheduled to take place on December 17th next month which means that Mahal won’t be heading to India with the belt as previously speculated.
No word yet on what the company has planned for the upcoming Championship match, but with this announcement, a scenario where Jinder wins the title back at the PPV doesn’t look very likely.
