Jinder Mahal claims he has creative control over his character

Jinder Mahal WWE Champion

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.

    He’s putting effort into it and is being humble, I respect him for that.

    That’s how it is with all the creative in WWE. There is a whole team of writers, but nothing sees the light of day without going through Vince first.

    They make him think he does, so with their crap writing of his reign comes to an end, he will get the blame. It’ll be a case of well we tried something new, but he couldn’t deliver.

    Mahal: “I have creative control but I listen to whatever Vince says”

    It sounds like he thinks he has creative control but he really doesn’t
