Jinder Mahal 1

Former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal has opened up about the process of his character change upon returning to WWE, and what was changed from his original pitch to the fruition of the move.

Speaking with Inside The Ropes‘ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy ahead of WWE Glasgow, Jinder Mahal was asked about his evolution of a character and if he had made any pitches for his return, and how they played out.

“Yes. So when I came back, I spoke to Vince about giving me the Indus Sher tag team, Saurav and Rinku, Veer and Saurav. Unfortunately, Saurav was in India, so I got Shanky.”
There had been many rumours as to why Indus Sher were split up and only one member joined forces with Mahal, but the former WWE Champion put that speculation to rest.
“So it wasn’t the original plan, but, you know, making it work, and hopefully when Saurav makes it back. He’s dealing with some visa issues. I think once they get sorted, you know, let’s add more more to the group because the Indus Sher tag team in NXT, phenomenal, great look.”
It wasn’t only Indus Sher that Jinder Mahal had praise for, saying Shanky is “awesome” and brings “something special” to the group.
“Shanky is awesome too, he brings something special. Seven feet tall. But I think we get that tag team, we have Shanky, we have me like, even though we’re a group, we’re still different. You know, we dress different. We have different styles. Everything is different. So I think it’s a good, good group. So that’s one of the things didn’t get yet. But I’m hopeful that it will happen.”
WWE Live returns to the UK in November. More information about that tour is available here.
