It appears that the current WWE Champion Jinder Mahal is dealing with some sort of shoulder injury and has been working hurt from a while.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Mahal has been wearing Kinesio Tape while wrestling at Live Events but avoiding it for the TV Tapings and PPVs.
The belief is that he is dealing with some shoulder issues but the company doesn’t want people to see him taped on Television. Below is a photo of him wearing the Kinesio Tape during a recent Live Event:
Though it’s worth mentioning here that since Jinder has not missed any TV time and there is no news of him missing any recent Live Events, it appears that his injury is not very serious.
According to speculations, the next challenger for Jinder Mahal’s WWE Championship could be none other than the Phenomenal One AJ Styles who has recently lost his US Title to Baron Corbin.
