Triple H on why Jinder Mahal received such a big push

jinder Mahal

Jinder Mahal’s transaction from being a jobber to becoming the WWE Champion was surprising to many and people wonder what caused WWE to change their mind about the Modern Day Maharaja.

During a recent conference call, Triple h was asked how it became possible and the game claimed that he always thought Jinder had the potential to become a big star in WWE.

However, he said that during Mahal’s first run things didn’t work out as they thought and he ended up as a member of 3MB and later got released from the company.

Though according to the Game, his run in the independent circuit made him more mature and it’s what made his big push possible when he returned to the company, similarly to his fellow 3MB member Drew McIntyre:

“Nothing always goes the way you plan. But, you take them out of the environment, when both those guys left us, it looked – go figure some things out, take your time, mature. Be ready for the opportunity, because when it comes back, you’re gonna want to be able to kill it, and they both have. I think that’s great. “

It’s worth mentioning here that in previous interviews, many WWE superstars have praised the hard work of Jinder Mahal since returning to WWE which is also believed to be a reason for his championship victory.

    If I was born in China it wouldn’t make me Chinese.

    I like Jinder, but I can’t want for Ginger to be champion.

    I never said that it wasn’t offensive, but let’s face it that’s just how wwe rolls now.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    But thats just it, just because he “looks indian” dosent justify it in fact that probably makes it more offensive. WWE creative logic: “Oh this guy looks indian enough, thatll get us over in India”

    no just no

    Thats just like calling Sami Zayn french because hes from Montreal and can speak a little french

    True, though how many people will actually know this outside of people who read sites like these? In every important respect he looks and plays the part and is billed from India, most other people wouldn’t know he’s actually Indo-Canadian unless everyone in India looks him up on wikipedia.

    Simply put, he’s brown enough and can speak enough of the language and that’s all that matters to WWE, until he’s no longer profitable, and he’ll either be released or end up with some Kerwin White like gimmick or something.

    Except one massive glaring flaw being that Jinder isnt actually indian hes canadian

    Good for Jinder, and I hope Drew gets a second chance like him as well.
    So far he has transitioned into the role really well and like Strowman, seems to be working hard to improve when too many mid and lower carders seem to cruise on the talent they already have.
    Are there guys that deserve the push more? Maybe. But that does not mean he did not deserve it at all.
