It’s still quite hard to believe that none but Jinder Mahal is the reigning WWE champion. Who could have thought that an Indian would be holding the most coveted prize present in the history of the pro-wrestling industry?

For most of the time in the company, he stayed at the mid-card heel level to put over stronger babyfaces than him, until when he was shifted to Smackdown Live. The abrupt push sent him not only to the main event spotlight but also capturing the title, this quick.

Now, in a recent rumour roundup from, it was stated that this push was due to Impact Wrestling trying to grab the Indian market, at the earliest. They became the first company to host two weekly shows at the Filmcity of Mumbai which has increased their popularity among Indian fans.

The news that their rivals are coming to India was known by the WWE and they did not take much time to establish Jinder Mahal as one of the topmost names in the company. The Maharaja has also become the talking point of the pro-wrestling universe by becoming the Champion at Backlash.

The source claimed that the officials of the WWE knew what was coming from Impact. So, they wanted to spoil their party by making Jinder the champion and stealing the spotlight, prior to the tapings. There are various other reports on the internet which claimed that the owners of Impact claim that it was planned move by the WWE, quite obviously.

Meanwhile, the two shows organised by Impact turned out to be a huge success with the packed audience on consecutive nights. Both of these episodes were taped centred around two Indian superstars, Sonjay Dutt and Mahabali Shera which earned quite an appreciation from the fans.

With that being said, the days are not far when WWE intends to visit India, sooner than later. They want to visit India keeping Jinder as the champion. So, it is being rumoured that Jinder Mahal will hold the title until the month of September, the same month when the tour will be conducted. Confirmations regarding the same will be made in near future.
