It’s a known fact that WWE likes to have strict control over their superstars and it means only a special few of them have somewhat creative control over their characters.
However, in a recent interview with India Today, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal claimed that he has creative control over his character but he takes the ideas of Vince McMahon too:
“I do have creative control but also Vince (McMahon) gives advice and ideas and I take them. Vince has experience and he has made the biggest sports entertainment in the history. He has made WWE into a global phenomenon. I have a good relation with Vince, he trusts me on the microphone, with my matches, which will only increase with time. I personally want to seek Vince’s advice.”
Jinder also talked about what holding the WWE Championship means to him and said that it’s a huge honour to hold the coveted title:
“Holding the WWE title is a dream come true. It is a title that has been held by the likes Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino and that is something I don’t take lightly. It is a huge opportunity for me and it allows me to represent India and it is a huge honour”
Jinder Mahal is currently scheduled to defend his WWE Championship against Randy Orton in a Punjabi Prison match at Battleground. You can check out the full match card for the PPV here.
