Jinder Mahal on being shy during his promos, his physical transformation

NBC News recently recently spoke to WWE Champion Jinder Mahal. Below are some of the highlights:



Being shy on his promos:

“I’m very down to earth, quiet. I’m kind of a homebody. I have a little dog. She keeps me company,” Mahal told NBC News. “I just like to train and diet and get my rest so my body can recover so I can wrestle.”

“It’s an entertainment industry, and I know you have to turn up the volume, which I’m now comfortable doing,” he added. “At first I was very shy to talk into the mic and to talk in front of people.”

His finishing move being a tribute to The Great Khali’s uncle:

“His finishing move was the cobra clutch,” Dhesi said. “As a tribute to him, my finishing move is the cobra clutch into a slam.”

His physical transformation:

“You put in the hard work and then the result comes,” Dhesi said. “It’s not that you see the result and then you put in the hard work. I was preparing myself.”

“There’s a saying, ‘force the result,’” he added. “I was constantly getting in better shape, really watching what I eat, improving on all the facets of my game, so when the opportunity came, I would be ready. You have to stay ready.”
