Ever since WWE has made Jinder Mahal, the WWE Champion, they have been trying to garner some attention from the Indian Audience. In the latest episode of Smackdown Live, we have received another specimen of the same after they came up with a huge announcement. This will help to hype the upcoming from the blue brand, for sure.

Randy Orton pledged on the show to get a rematch for the WWE Championship after his family was disrespected at the Money in the Ban PPV. Shane McMahon granted him the same without disclosing the stipulation. Sooner, the reigning champion arrived to let us know that this time he will defend the title inside the structure known as the Punjabi Prison.

The match will go down at the third Smackdown-exclusive PPV following Wrestlemania 33. It will be the 2017 edition of the Battleground PPV. This year the event will be hosted at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 23rd. The night will witness the main event featuring Orton and Jinder Mahal inside the Punjabi Prison.

Following WWE Smackdown Live, the official website of the WWE gave some updates on the match:
“Brace yourself for the return of the daunting Punjabi Prison Match when Randy Orton looks for retribution and his 14th World Title against WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at WWE Battleground.

With Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal locked inside the dreaded Punjabi Prison, there is no way to predict who will walk out with the WWE Championship. Don’t miss WWE Battleground, streaming live on WWE Network on Sunday, July 23 at 8 ET/5 PT.”

The Punjabi Prison was the brainchild of the former world champion from India, The Great Khali. Only two such matches were held prior to this one with the last one back in 10 years ago. Both the matches involved Khali in some sort of capacity.

Previously, the Undertaker had stated that this is one of the most hellacious gimmicks of all-time. Every inch of that bamboo made structure hurts. With the demonic cage being back, WWE will not have to try hard to sellout the last PPV before Summerslam.
