Years after losing his WWE Championship to AJ Styles, Mahal had a golden opportunity to claim the ultimate prize tonight on RAW. However, fate wanted Rollins to carry on his title reign at least till the Royal Rumble. After tasting the defeat, Mahal took his reaction to X and wrote this: “Welp, so much for sending that extra Pyro for my Punjabi Celebration…”.

The Modern Day Maharaja did, however, give Rollins a tough fight but ultimately didn’t get his desired outcome, but a prospective transformation was evident. With this, we are nearing the CM Punk vs Seth Rollins feud, which could center stage at WrestleMania 40. But what happened in the main event of RAW tonight?

Tonight’s main event could have been a game-changer for Jinder Mahal. Nearly after six long years, he got a title shot and indeed gave tough competition to Seth Rollins. We saw a close match; however, Rollins defeated Jinder via pinfall to win this match. Mahal did in fact hit Rollins with a Khallas after the interference of the Indus Sher, but as the latter kicked out, it was evident that the WWE wanted to extend his title reign.

There was also a point where Drew McIntyre spoiled the cash-in plan of Damian Priest, and both ended up in a brawl at the ringside. The match certainly demonstrated decent match drama, and it seems Jinder Mahal won’t stop from here. Considering Mahal hasn’t won a televised match since June 2022, it was surely a nice performance showcased by the Indian native.
