Jinder Mahal might be in a position where people should admire for what he achieved in the year 2017 but he surely had not forgotten the insult that he suffered at the hands of Rob Gronkowski. One of the prime members of New England Patriot was a guest during this year’s Wrestlemania 33.
To bring some mainstream attention to the event, he was involved in a matchup costing Jinder Mahal, big time. During the kick-off show of the evening April 2nd, the Modern-Day Maharaja stood tall and was one the verge to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
However, a heated confrontation took place between the two of them at the ringside area.
Initially, it began with Jinder talking trash to Gronkowski who was supporting his friend, Mojo Rawley.
Going forward, the American Football Star entered the ring and hit Jinder with a shoulder block to put him down.
The task for Mojo became quite easy to throw his opponent over the top rope and win the 2017 edition of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
The former WWE Champion from the Indian origin surely did not forget this act and mentioned this in an interview with the Sports Illustrated.
He stated that he indeed has some “unfinished business” with Gronk:
“Rob Gronkowski cost me the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and I haven’t forgot that. There is definitely unfinished business between myself and Gronkowski, and I can guarantee he’ll be getting his receipt.”
After what transpired at Wrestlemania, the follow up of this angle was also expected since WWE brought Gronkowski in an episode of Smackdown Live. Once again, on that day, Jinder suffered another loss at the hands of Mojo owing to the NFL star.
But, the champ mentioned that this incident let him learn that how he should give 100 percent to become a successful man.
Check out his further quotes, here:
“Of course I was disappointed. But I also learned that you get back what you put in. Before I wasn’t giving it 100 percent, therefore I wasn’t getting back 100 percent. I regained my focus, I regained my drive, and I’m fortunate for every day that I’m in WWE.”
