12. X-Pac Doesn’t Think Jinder Mahal Has Creative Control Over His Character, Reveals How He Used To Manipulate Vince McMahon

During “The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro”, WWF Veteran X-Pac talked about WWE Champion Jinder Mahal recently saying that he has creative control over his character. Below are the highlights:

X-Pac doesn’t think Jinder Mahal has creative control over his character:

“No, not in the way that people are interpreting what he’s saying. No one does, and no one ever has. I think that Vince probably did tell him you have the final say on this because some of it could be racially sensitive, or ethnically, cause he’s talking about a lot of things that are ethnically charged. He should because he’s the one that’s out there saying these things. So I understand, if that’s what he’s talking about then ok, yes, but as far as like, ok, I have creative control so I don’t, I’m not going to lose to this person, no, I’m not dropping the title. In our industry when we talk about creative control, usually it means ok, they have control over everything that the character does. Who they wrestle, what they win, who they beat, who they lose to, what they say, you know, everything. Back in our day, Steve Austin had a lot of creative control. Rock had a ton. Us, D-Generation X. We had a ton too!”

On how he used to manipulate Vince McMahon:

“This is how it used to go all the time you guys. It was somebody would go, and I’ve been this person, ‘Oh that’s it this time I’m not backing down, I’m sticking to my guns.’ And you walk in there, and Vince will talk you into circles, and basically you’ll end up shaking his hand and saying thank you boss, and walking out doing exactly what you said you weren’t going to do. Actually we used to convince him that our idea was his to get shit done around there. Honestly that’s how it used to happen.”
