It’s no secret that WWE has been trying to tap into the Indian market in recent times, and making Jinder Mahal the WWE champion was a part of their strategy.
However, it doesn’t look like this strategy of the company is working as they have to cancel one of their upcoming Live Events in India.
The company sent out the following Press Release to Sportskeeda, revealing that now there will be only one ‘Supershow’ during the upcoming tour instead of two live events:
TRIPLE H™ VS. JINDER MAHAL™ TO HEADLINE WWE® LIVE INDIA “SUPERSHOW” ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9
WWE and Sony Pictures Networks India today announced that WWE Live in India at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium will now feature one “Supershow” on Saturday, December 9, including the return of WWE Superstar Triple H™ vs. “The Modern-Day Maharaja”, Jinder Mahal™, in the main event.
Tickets are still available at https://in.bookmyshow.com/sports/wwe-live-india-tickets/
To meet the requests of WWE fans in India, and deliver the biggest main event in the country’s history, WWE is combining two nights of family-friendly action into a one-night only, exclusive Supershow.
The card will also include*:
The Shield: Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose vs. Samoa Joe and RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus;
Braun Strowman vs. Kane;
Finn Bálor vs Bray Wyatt;
RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks;
Jason Jordan vs Elias;
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore vs. Kalisto;
Apollo Crews and Titus O’Neil vs Gallows and Anderson;
Jeet Rama and Kishan Rafter vs The Miztourage.
*Talent line-up subject to change.
While the exact reason for the cancellation of the first live event is not known yet, it looks likely that the low ticket sales forced them to frist announce Triple H for the show and then cancel one of the events.
