Bad news for Jinder Mahal fans, but it looks like the rumor of Jinder becoming a two time WWE World Champion In India was false!
Triple H laid out a challenge to the “Modern Day Maharaja” on in a Twitter video earlier today, and it did not take long for Mahal to send a reply accepting the challenge.

The original card for WWE’s house show in New Dehli was going to be highlighted by Jinder Mahal vs. Kevin Owens for the WWE World Title. But with Kevin Owens being sent home along with Sami Zayn for “disciplinary reasons” and AJ Styles ending Jinder’s ill-conceived Title reign, WWE still needed some kind of hook for the show. It would appear this is what they are going with.
