The red brand entered the year 2024 by pulling out a stellar return of The Rock last week. Tonight at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, they kept up with the same spirit, bringing several top stars in some breathtaking segments. That being said, Jinder Mahal came out again spewing his hateful rhetoric.

This made him get on the nerves of Seth Freakin’ Rollins in a fiery promo battle.

The former WWE champion aims to create havoc amongst the WWE roster in his recent appearances. Last week, he attempted to ruin the monumental return of the Great One, only to be put through an attitude adjustment. The People’s Champion rubbed him off with a People’s elbow.

But Mahal isn’t the man to sit still. Tonight, he came out and posed an unforeseen interruption in Rollins’ business.

As Seth Rollins Finds Out Who He Will Face at SummerSlam, WWE Teases Insane Stipulation for World Heavyweight Title Match

The Modern Day Maharaja tried to plan Rollins with a Khallas but ultimately failed to connect. The World Heavyweight champion aimed to respond in kind with a curb stomp but even he failed to dish out some punishment.

Mahal barely escaped a fatal curb stomp. However, he has his eyes on the World Heavyweight Championship belt and earned a shot at it for the next week.

So, are we going to witness a massive brawl between the two men at the Royal Rumble 2024? Let’s look at the prospects.

Is there any chance of Seth Rollins vs Jinder Mahal at Royal Rumble 2024?

The Visionary is set to put his World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Jinder Mahal next week. Rollins likes to call himself a fighting champion, a workhorse champion, and has been living up to that mark as well. Till now, he brutally brushed off every contender including Drew McIntyre, Damian Priest, and Finn Balor from his way. There is very little chance of WWE breaking that streak anytime soon and that too in a weekly show. So, Rollins possibly won’t drop his title on Raw next week, but he could be viciously beaten down by The Modern Day Maharaja leading to a rematch for the 2024 Royal Rumble.

Given The Visionary has yet to choose an opponent for the upcoming premium live event, the chances of his newly-seeded brawl with Mahal occurring at Royal Rumble seem huge.
