Jinder Mahal puts everyone on notice following return from injury

During his recent appearance on WWE’s The Bump, the ‘Modern Day Maharaja’ talked about a lot of topics. He detailed his grind for making a strong comeback, his motivation, and even a possible match with real-life close friend, Drew McIntyre.

However, the most interesting part came at the end of his appearance on The Bump.

Ryan Pappolla asked Jinder Mahal if he had any message for the world, especially the Raw locker room. Jinder immediately said he would let his actions speak for themselves and also gave a subtle hint suggesting he could soon enter the WWE Title picture.

He said, “You’ll see over the next few weeks, over the next few months, even over the next few years, because the ‘Modern Day Maharaja’ isn’t going anywhere. You’ll see that I will go down in history as the greatest WWE Superstar. A multiple-time World Champion, WWE Champion, Universal Champion; Grand Slam Champion! (pauses) And first ballot Hall of Famer.”

Jinder Mahal made his WWE debut in April 2011 as part of Friday Night SmackDown. Mahal’s first run in the company didn’t see him in any significant feuds. This eventually lead to his and another 3MB member, Drew McIntyre’s firing from the company.

Mahal didn’t let himself loose. In fact, he put in his 100% and worked hard to make an impressive physical transformation. He returned to the company in mid-2016 after the Brand Split. However, like in his former run, he didn’t do anything significant until 2017.

Jinder’s push began during WrestleMania season. He was the runner-up of the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33 and even had an on-screen altercation with NFL star, Rob Gronkowski.

His peak came just one month later at Backlash 2017 where he defeated Randy Orton to win his first WWE Championship.

Mahal held the WWE Championship for a nice and long six months before dropping it to AJ Styles. Since losing the title, Mahal has won the United States Championship at WrestleMania 34, and the 24/7 Championship twice.

Now that Mahal is back from injury, we expect him to add more accolades to his name.
